Ipswich Town said it was concerned that midfielder David Norris’s celebration after scoring a goal had been interpreted as a tribute his friend, former Plymouth Argyle goalkeeper Luke McCormick.
Club officials said Norris, 27, from Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, had written a letter of “regret” to the boys’ parents and the club would make a donation to charity
“In hearing the player’s explanation, the club also regrets the potential for misinterpretation of the gesture and would like to make a donation to an appropriate charity, equal to the fine imposed on the player.”
The Football Association earlier confirmed they have written to Norris to ask him to explain his actions and he could face further sanctions. “We are aware of the incident and have written to Ipswich to seek an explanation from David Norris for his actions and await his response,” an FA spokesman said.
Norris told the Daily Mirror: “It wasn’t a handcuff sign, it was a private message but I can see why people have seen it like that. I apologise if anyone was offended by it. Luke is a friend who made a massive mistake and he is paying for that.”
