United captain Gary Neville won’t lie down and take the punishment the FA want to dish out for his gesture to Scouse fans at Old Trafford.

Neville has denied the Football Association charge of improper conduct relating to his goal celebrations during the 1-0 win over Liverpool, and will fight them all the way.

Neville was accused of inciting the Liverpool supporters following Rio Ferdinand’s injury-time winner at Old Trafford on January 22. But he insists he was not trying to ‘incite’ anything, and was only enjoying the moment.

The England full-back has requested a personal hearing which will be scheduled in due course.
