Southampton striker,Charlie Austin has been charged by the Football Association for “an abusive and/or insulting” gesture he made during the defeat to Manchester City on December 30.
Austin was booed by a section of the St Mary’s Stadium crowd when substituted in the second half of the Premier League match, which City won 3-1.
Television cameras showed Austin appearing to make a two-fingered sign in response.
The 29-year-old has until 18:00 local time on January 7 to respond to the FA charge.
In December 2013, Jack Wilshere was banned for two games after accepting a misconduct charge following a similar gesture made to City fans while playing for Arsenal.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
