FA want to ban interaction between players, fans

The FA want to ban interaction between fans and players.

The Sun says the FA will clamp down on footballers who goad rival supporters.

West Ham goalscorer Junior Stanislas was criticised for celebrating in front of Millwall fans at Upton Park last Tuesday.

And there were THREE more examples this weekend in the League.

Nottingham Forest ace Nathan Tyson celebrated victory against rivals Derby by waving a corner flag in front of away fans.

Southampton's Rickie Lambert, who admitted his relationship with fans of former club Stockport was "pure hate", also revelled in front of the home following.

And in Rochdale's 3-0 win over Bury in League Two, Tom Kennedy also goaded his former club's supporters - sparking another pitch invasion.

An FA spokesman said: "We'll look at what is reported to us and deal with most incidents."
