Watford's Deeney Offers Weird Explanation For Weird Celebration Against Chelsea Fans

Watford's Troy Deeney has offered a weird explanation for his weird goal celebration against Chelsea fans after he scored his penalty in the 4-1 win at Vicarage Road.
Deeney scored from the penalty spot as Watford defeated English Premier League champions Chelsea on Monday night.

The striker proceeded to celebrate by holding up both middle fingers, which he says was in response to “transfer speculation”.
“Obviously we’ve had a lot of transfer talk and transfer speculation,” he told BBC Radio 5 Live.

“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’m still here.”
 Because that’s how we’d all react to being linked with West Brom.

The English FA are thought to be investigating footage of the gesture ahead of a potential punishment for Deeney, who has already served two bans this season.

And the FA are said to be waiting for referee Mike Dean's match report to find out if the Deeney's gesture made towards Chelsea fans was seen by the officials.

If the incident is in the referee's match report then Deeney is facing a retrospective two-game ban.

However, if it was not seen, then he is expected to be charged with making an offensive/abusive gesture and if found proven will see a further two games added as it will be his third red card offence this season.

Tottenham's Dele Alli was suspended for one game for making a similar gesture during an England game last year.
