Sam Clucas Apologises For 'Offensive' Goal Celebration Against Arsenal

Swansea midfielder Sam Clucas has apologised for a goal celebration that apparently promotes 'degrading viral sex videos.'

Plenty of people questioned Clucas' actions after he scored against Arsenal on Tuesday night and now it has emerged that he was mimicking a pornography website's 'spy' symbol.

The clips that appear on the website are described as 'a series of catchphrases in a thick Yorkshire accent', according to The Sun.

Swansea have since responded to Clucas' goal celebration, saying that he was not fully aware of the website's content.

"As a club we were unaware of any links to the internet group in question and disappointed to learn of the association as it does not reflect the values of Swansea City nor our strong commitment to equality." a Swansea spokesman said.

"We wholeheartedly condemn the degradation of women and believe everyone's rights, dignity and individual worth is to be respected."

"Having spoken to Sam, he was not fully aware of the pornographic sections of this internet group and at no time intended to cause offence which he apologises for.

The club will speak to Sam again internally to establish the full facts, while also taking the opportunity to remind everyone of their responsibilities."

Clucas isn't the only player to have performed the controversial goal celebration in recent weeks.

Southampton's Charlie Austin and teammate Jack Stephens celebrated by mimicking the website's 'spy' symbol while boxer Kell Brook also produced the sign in an interview.

As we mentioned earlier, the FA are currently looking into the incident.
