Lokomotiv Moscow fans have escaped punishment over their controversial send off to new West Bromwich Albion hero Peter Odemwingie.

The Mail on Sunday says the Russian Football Union have refused to take any official action against Moscow Lokomotiv for their fans' behaviour towards Odemwingie.

The club's supporters earned worldwide condemnation after they unfurled a sign showing a banana and the message 'Thanks, West Brom' when the Nigerian joined the Premier League club last month.

But the country's disciplinary committee did not even consider the matter, with chairman Vladimir Katkov insisting: "My opinion on this is that we should not exaggerate the incident."
