Neville under scrutiny for Tevez gesture

The Football Association are "looking into" Gary Neville's one-fingered gesture towards Carlos Tevez in last night's Carling Cup semi-final at Eastlands.

Neville was warming up on the touchline as Tevez began his celebrations following the first-half penalty that pulled Manchester City level.

Tevez appeared to gesticulate towards Neville as if to say "shut it", in response to the Manchester United skipper's weekend comments that Sir Alex Ferguson was correct to let the Argentina star leave Old Trafford last summer.

Neville's own reply, captured on camera, was of the one-fingered variety, which triggered more taunts from Tevez.

The FA have confirmed they will look at the matter before deciding whether to take any further action.
