The FA have charged Southampton striker Charlie Austin after the Southampton striker aimed a good old-fashioned two-finger salute at Man City fans when the two sides faced each other on Sunday.

Austin flicked his defiant ‘V’ at the City fans as he was being substituted in the 68th minute. The travelling support were heckling him over a stout challenge that left Fernandinho in a crumpled heap a little earlier in the match.

As per the FA’s statement, Austin has since been charged with making an “abusive and/or insulting’ gesture toward the opposition supporters at St Mary’s.

The 29-year-old has until 7th January to respond and if he’s got anything about him, he’ should go ahead and fax a full-colour version of the image above directly through to the FA disciplinary department.
