Zenit St Petersburg midfielder Roman Shirokov was sent off for making an obscene gesture at the club's own fans after he scored in their 3-1 win against Volga Nizhny.

Shirokov was booed onto the pitch by the notorious Zenit supporters and after he doubled the Russian champions' lead in stoppage-time he swore at his detractors.

Immediately red-carded by the referee, Shirokov was jeered again by the home support and made a second obscene gesture as he left the pitch.
