West Brom midfielder James Morrison says sorry for a gesture targeted towards Stoke City fans during the Baggies win on Saturday.

West Bromwich Albion midfielder James Morrison has apologised for his gesture towards Stoke City supporters during the Baggies' victory at the weekend.

The 25-year-old appeared to display a fist-pumping signal towards the Potters fans after he scored in West Brom's 2-1 win at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday.

"It was a little bit 'heat of the moment' and I didn't mean anything by it," said Morrison. "I like to think I'm a nice guy on the pitch, so if anything comes of it I apologise."

While boss Roy Hodgson came to the defence of the Scotland international, the Football Association could still take action if deemed necessary.
