"It is a hard job the referees have. I was wrong to do that," Moyes told the BBC.
"I thought it was a free kick on Leon Osman on the edge of the box in the 92nd minute by (Frank) Lampard and he didn't give it," he added.
"I've apologised to Howard Webb afterwards because I shouldn't do that coming off the pitch."
The United boss was fuming after Dean awarded Newcastle's second goal, over-ruling his assistant who had flagged for offside.
When Dean came out for the second half of the match, Ferguson, who escaped FA punishment, followed the referee on the pitch, venting his fury.
