FA not to take any action against Gerrard

The Football Association will not take action against Steven Gerrard following his alleged hand gesture towards referee Andre Marriner.

The Liverpool captain had found himself in the media spotlight after appearing to flash a V-sign when he was booked by Marriner during his side's 1-0 defeat at Wigan Athletic at Monday.
Speaking in the build-up to Thursday's Europa League last 16 clash with Lille, Reds boss Rafael Benitez was keen to play down the incident.
Now the FA has confirmed that they have no plans to take any further action.
It has been reported that Marriner saw the incident at the time and felt it not worthy of any further punishment.
"Sometimes you move your fingers. It was nothing. We are not considering it, it was nothing," explained Benitez in his pre-match press conference.
"All the players know they have to behave on the pitch. I was more worried about the silly fouls we were giving to Wigan."
