Southampton striker Charlie Austin has been charged after appearing to make an obscene gesture towards Manchester City supporters, the Football Association (FA) said on Thursday.

Austin was caught making a two-fingered gesture towards a section of booing away fans at St Mary’s Stadium while being substituted during Southampton’s 3-1 Premier League defeat on Sunday.

“It is alleged that Mr Austin’s gesture in or around the 68th minute of the fixture was abusive and/or insulting,” the FA said in a statement.

Austin has until 1800 GMT on Jan. 7 to respond to the charge.
