Bottle thrown as Blackburn star Diouf taunts Man City fans

Manchester City fans hurled a bottle at Blackburn Rovers attacker El Hadji Diouf during yesterday's 1-1 draw at Eastlands.

The Mail on Sunday says Diouf had a bottle thrown at him by incensed Manchester City fans as he blew kisses towards them and celebrated an unlikely 1-1 draw for his team at Eastlands.

Diouf, a hate figure for opposition fans wherever he goes, refused to hide his feelings after Blackburn's creditable draw, stripping down to his shorts and waving with delight at City fans as he walked off.

His behaviour earned a chorus of boos from City fans and a plastic bottle was hurled at him and picked up by team-mate Pascal Chimbonda.

The pair then continued to celebrate all the way to the tunnel, lifting their arms up in triumph towards the City fans, with Senegal international Diouf blowing kisses until a policeman came over and hurried him along.
