AC Milan striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar insists he wasn't trying to wind-up Fiorentina fans with his celebrations after scoring in this week's win in Florence.

Huntelaar scored Milan's equaliser in the 81st minute, setting up a thrilling finish as Alexandre Pato grabbed a winner in stoppage time.

Speaking to Milan's official TV channel, he said: "After my equaliser in Florence, I literally went crazy with joy.

"It was a very important goal in a difficult moment of the game. My celebratory gesture was one of joy and liberation with respect to the many minutes in which we were a goal down, but it was absolutely not meant to be offensive to the opponent's fans.

"I am really sorry if it has been seen in this way."
