'Screw You' Taunt To Scousers

'Screw You' Taunt To Scousers

I don't think it's a surprise to anyone that Gary Neville has been charged with improper conduct by the Football Association.

The United skipper taunted the Liverpool fans following Rio Ferdinand's last-gasp winner against Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Neville ran fully 60 yards to launch a fist-pumping, badge-kissing reaction in front of the Liverpool fans.

The 30-year-old has until February 10 to respond, although the worst he can expect is a heavy fine.

The FA were swayed by the concerns of Greater Manchester Police, after complaints from Liverpool fans.

Neville: 'You are caught up in the moment and, for a few seconds, yes, you do go bananas.

'I laughed when I heard someone say it was not the behaviour of a 30-year-old because they are probably the same people who have accused us of lacking passion in recent games.

'The stick is part of the game. One week you take it on the chin, the next, you give it out.'
