West Brom boss Roy Hodgson has defended James Morrison after an apparent gesture made by the midfielder in the victory at Stoke.
Morrison struck the opener in the 35th minute at the Britannia Stadium with a 30-yarder that left Stoke goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen red-faced.
The Scotland international, who also struck the woodwork twice, then wheeled away in celebration towards the Stoke fans in the Seddon Stand, initially with his arms outstretched.
However, perhaps reacting to a comment, Morrison then quickly placed his left hand on his right upper arm and delivered a fist-pump gesture.
When asked about the incident after the game, Hodgson said: "Did he do that? Blimey. You guys (the media) see everything.
"That gesture could be interpreted in a thousand ways.
"I hope he didn't do a gesture. If he did, I'm sure he'll apologise for it.
"But he's not that type of guy. I guess it was just a way of showing a celebration, but I didn't see it, and what's more I don't want to."
