LONDON (AFP) - Sir Alex Ferguson has denied making offensive gestures during Manchester United's Premier League victory at Reading.



The United manager was caught by television cameras appearing to make obsence hand movements in the direction of home supporters at the Madejski Stadium following Wayne Rooney's goal.

After Cristiano Ronaldo scored a late clincher for United, Ferguson embarked on an aggressive clenched fist gesture which seemed to be aimed towards the Reading bench and coach Wally Downes.

But the Scot insisted he was only celebrating his side's goals.

"All I was doing was expressing my relief at winning what was one of our hardest games of the season," Ferguson said.

"Reading always make it tough for us. We ran so much that we clocked up more kilometres than we have in any game this season."

Yeah right Fergie - it was expressing the relief ;) ;) ;) ...i won't tell anyone

I thought it was directed at the Reading bench - not the Reading fans.

My understanding was that Wally Downes had been moaning all game about the refs decisions and then told the fourth official how much injury time he thought there should be.

Fergie thought that they had added too much time at the end of the game but then Ronaldo scored during time added on so he turned to the bench and gestured as if to say...

"Ha ha, take that!!!"

Yeah I reckon it wa aimed at Wally...
Downes is forever getting in peoples faces and never backs down lmao
I find it funny people always moan over these things.
He was just telling Wally to feck off, no big deal 'cos Wally probably deserved it.

I can think of many worse hand gestures he could have made.

It was a fuss about nothing really and that's why no action will be taken by the FA.

sometimes the banter coming from the away fans does get to the manager and in much the same way as gary neville running to liverpool fans to celebrate utd win after dogs abuse it is a case of giving them some back . passions are raised during a game . i am sure you have called players who miss easy goals during a game as we all have and when we analyse things after it seems childish . for me its a great sign of the fire still burning

lol everyone getting heated about something that I first saw ON THE SIMPSONS. Jesus FA, how about sorting out Englands future in football and getting rid of dodgy transfer deals instead of deliberating over whether to send a midly worded letter to an angry scotsman about his arm movements.

This gesture is the reason why it shows he is the best coach. If saf ever stops things of this nature, it means the passion is gone, and we all know that boring footie comes from boring coaches ,look at chelski!
