Van Dijk acknowledged to acting inappropriately after being sent off for a tackle on Newcastle’s Alexander Isak in the first half of Liverpool’s 2-1 triumph at St James’ Park in August.


The enraged Dutch star felt the tackle was not deserving of a red card and first refused to leave the field before talking with referee John Brooks.


The Liverpool centre-back was suspended for the 3-0 win over Aston Villa before the international break due to an inevitable one-match ban.


Now he will also serve an additional suspension ruling him out of the Reds’ trip to Wolves on September 16.


“The defender admitted that he acted in an improper manner and used abusive and insulting words towards a match official after being sent off in the 29th minute and the sanctions were subsequently imposed by an independent regulatory commission,” a Football Association statement said on Friday.
