Jack Wilshere has revealed he stuck his middle finger up at a group of Manchester City fans because they abused him about his children

The Football Association handed Wilshere a two-match for the gesture, which came during the second half of the Gunners’ 3-6 defeat at the Etihad Stadium.

The England midfielder missed Monday’s 0-0 draw against Chelsea and he will also sit out the Boxing Day clash at West Ham.

Wilshere, who has two children, admits he made a mistake in getting riled by the supporters who abused him, and he is braced for more barracking from the stands in the future.

Wilshere tweeted: “Gutted not to be Involved last night! Shouldn’t of reacted the way I did but I know all you dads out there love your kids the way I do....

“Suppose I will just have to take the abuse about my kids in future......anyway, one more game to go! Can’t wait to be back! #AFC”
