Deeney's Middle Finger Doesn't Offend

Deeney's Middle Finger Doesn't Offend

Watford striker and skipper Troy Deeney will face no action following his wayward middle finger wiggles in the game against Chelsea last Monday.

The only potential downside from the Vicarage Road based four one victory over Antonio Conte's side in our last game was based around Deeney's goal celebration on the day and footage of said celebration had been sent to the Football Association to be viewed by their panel of three former match officials owing to the fact it had been missed by the match day referee.

The panel however couldn't agree unanimously as to whether it would've warranted a red card had the referee seen it, so no disciplinary action will be taken.

The FA however have stated they will be writing to the 29 year old and issuing an official warning and reminding him of his obligations on the pitch.

Had they decided it was a red card offence, Deeney could've been banned for up to four matches having already received two red cards so far this season - clashes with Stoke's Joe Allen back in October and his four game ban, after an appeal loss, for his clash with Collin Quaner in December.

The BBC quote Deeney as saying.

'I've kept quiet because I realise talking gets me in trouble. That was a case of letting everyone know I saw everything and I am still here.'

His inference was it was a reaction to 'transfer speculation'.
