ONE-FINGERED SALUTE

Troy Deeney faces possible ban for making rude gesture while celebrating goal against Chelsea

The Watford forward faces a four-match ban for seemingly sticking his finger up while celebrating

Troy Deeney could be in a bit of trouble with the FA, after his one-fingered in Watford’s 4-1 win over Chelsea

And it looks like the striker – who was linked with a move away from Vicarage Road during the January transfer window – could face a FOUR match-ban if his gesture was picked up by referee Mike Dean in his match report.

If he is found guilty, then Deeney will miss next Saturday’s trip to West Ham followed by home games against Everton and West Brom then away at Arsenal.

And believe it or not, but this could be the 29-year-old’s THIRD suspension of the season.

He was hit with a three-game ban in October for violent conduct for grabbing Stoke’s Joe Allen by the face in a terrifying incident.

And he was then given a four-game ban after his red card against Huddersfield back in December, following a challenge on Colin Quaner.

After the game, the club’s captain bizarrely claimed his actions were a response to all of the recent transfer speculation that’s surrounded him.

Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live, he said: “Obviously we have had a lot of transfer talk and transfer speculation.

“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.”

Because that definitely won’t get you in trouble, Troy.
