Watch Will Hughes make cheeky Liverpool gesture to Man Utd fans after Casemiro is sent off for grabbing his neck
CRYSTAL PALACE’s Liverpool-supporting star Will Hughes produced an epic taunt to Manchester United fans after Casemiro had been sent-off on Saturday.
The Brazilian was given his marching orders by referee Andre Marriner after a VAR check showed him grabbing the Palace midfielder by his neck.

The result of the red card will see Casemiro miss United’s next three domestic games – although he could potentially miss the Carabao Cup final if the club launch an appeal.
After Marriner had shown the red to Casemiro, the home fans at Old Trafford were absolutely furious.
Hughes started walking towards the Stretford End prior to play restarting.
And as supporters gave him verbals, he responded by pointing to his ear before placing his finger to his lips.
The 27-year-old then held up six fingers – seemingly referencing Liverpool’s Champions League success.
Despite being born in Surrey and then growing up in Derby, the former Watford man has stated previously that he is a fan of the Anfield club.
He told the Daily Express in 2016: “Steven Gerrard, with the way he played, the way he went about his game and his demeanour was my favourite player growing up and I followed him quite closely.
“I used to go quite a bit to watch them when I was younger and an academy player but obviously it’s a lot more difficult nowadays.

“That was Xabi Alonso, Javier Mascherano, Fernando Torres and Gerrard in their prime. It wasn’t a bad team. Why Liverpool? I couldn’t really tell you.
“They were just the team I followed growing up so you can’t say I was a glory supporter because they weren’t very successful in that period.
“I just had an admiration for them and followed them ever since.”
