Fergie denies gesture

Sir Alex Ferguson last night denied deliberately making an abusive gesture towards Reading fans during Manchester United's 2-0 weekend win. The United boss faces trial by television after allegedly goading Reading supporters in his over-zealous celebrations that followed Cristiano Ronaldo's decisive stoppage-time goal at the Stadium. Fergie had been involved in a touchline bust-up with Reading assistant boss Wally Downes after the fourth official decided on four additional minutes, with United clinging to a one-goal advantage. But last night, after United touched down in Riyah for today's testimonial for former Saudia Arabia international Sami Al-Jaber, Fergie protested his innocence and denied he had done anything to purposefully antagonise the Reading fans. "All I was doing was expressing my relief at winning what was one of our hardest games of the season," he said.
