Djibril Cisse has issued an apology through Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez for his behaviour after scoring Liverpool's third goal against Newcastle at St James' Park on Sunday.
But why did the message to his family upset so many Newcastle fans.
I can remember when Mirandinho scored a penalty at the Kop end to win the match 2-1 and he ran half the length of the Kop kissing his badge. But Cisse was giving a message to his family ... so why the uproar?
Benitez: 'I told him during the game to calm down, and at the end we also talked.
'The message on his shirt was for his young son and his family, and he has told me that he wishes to say sorry to the Newcastle fans. He hopes it is not a problem. I do not think there will be any further action, it was not a serious incident. For him it was really important to score, he had been under a lot of pressure, and maybe his reaction was understandable.
'He has been trying for a long time to score and he had managed it, I suppose it was a normal reaction. Raising his shirt showed a message to his family.'
