Ipswich midfielder David Norris in hot water over handcuff gesture
Tractor Boy makes gesture to jailed Luke McCormick
Ipswich Town’s David Norris has found himself in trouble with the club after celebrating his goal against Blackpool with an alleged handcuff gesture. The celebration was reported to be a message to former Plymouth Argyle team-mate Luke McCormick who was jailed for causing the deaths of two children while driving from Norris’ wedding drunk.
Norris acknowledged he was making a signal to McCormick but denied it was a handcuff gesture. He said: “It wasn’t a handcuffs sign it was a private message but I can see how people might have seen it like that and I apologise if it’s caused any offence. Luke is a friend of mine. He made a massive mistake and is paying for that.”
It doesn’t seem that his club will be seeing it that way. An Ipswich spokesman said: “We will be taking action. Norris has landed himself in trouble with this.”
