VIDEO: RB Leipzig’s Timo Werner gives Salzburg goalkeeper the finger after he saves shot

'Flips the bird' after being denied equaliser.



RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner stuck his middle finger up at Red Bull Salzburg goalkeeper Alexander Walke after he saved his shot in a Europa League match.

Thursday’s Group B game at the Red Bull Arena ended 1-0 to the Austrian side, with Werner reacting with a rude gesture when denied an equaliser.

The Germany international saw his shot palmed away in the 76th minute, moving him to “flip the bird” at the 35-year-old Salzburg stopper.

With five wins out of five, Red Bull Salzburg have already qualified for the next stage as group winners.

Leipzig on the other hand require a win at home to Norwegian club Rosenborg in their final fixture to stand any chance of qualifying.

They lie three points behind 2nd place Celtic, whose decisive match will be at home to what is likely to be an under-strength Salzburg side.

His team’s European woes aside, Werner is enjoying another productive season with Leipzig – he’s scored 8 goals in 13 games in all competitions.
