Billy Davies believes the Football Association must clarify what constitutes acceptable post-match celebrations in the wake of the fall-out from the east midlands derby between Nottingham Forest and Derby.
The Reds boss and striker Nathan Tyson have been accused of inciting Derby supporters Following Forest's 3-2 victory at the City Ground on Saturday. Davies ran towards a mixed area of the stadium to celebrate his side's win, while Tyson ran past Rams fans waving a corner flag bearing the Forest emblem sparking a melee involving both sets of players and coaching staff.
"I would call for some clarity on this. If there is a rule about not celebrating in a mixed area of stadiums where there are fans from both clubs we need to be told about it," said Davies.
"I have been accused of inciting opposition fans but I was merely doing what I do after every game. After every match I make a point of thanking the fans in every corner of the ground - it will all be there on video. I was not waving at the Derby fans, I was acknowledging the Forest fans in the upper tier."
