Merseyside police have confirmed that they will not be taking any action over Manchester City midfielder Joey Barton baring his backside at the end of Saturday's game at Everton.
The midfielder made the gesture as a response to comments being shouted by the home supporters about his half-brother Michael, who is is prison for the murder of teenager Anthony Walker.
The Eastlands club have since been inundated by letters and emails from Everton fans asking them not to take any action against Barton.
It appears the Everton fans believe the gesture was made more in jest than in any antagonistic way and they do not agree with the actions of the minority of Toffees fans who felt compelled to report the matter to the police.
Referee Andre Marriner was informed of the incident after the game and subsequently included it in his match report but the FA have yet to comment, leading many to believe that Barton will escape with a minor fine at worst.
