Southampton wrote in a statement: “Southampton Football Club can confirm that two fans were detained and had their details taken by police during our match against Cardiff City on Saturday.
“The Club will continue to work with Hampshire Police to identify any individuals deemed to have made indecent gestures towards Cardiff supporters.
“Such behaviour has no place in our game and will not be tolerated at St Mary’s.
“The club will be taking an extremely firm stance against anyone involved and intends to ban those supporters identified.”

Neil Warnock, who nearly retired from the game after the tough times the club have had to endure, said after the game: “We wanted to do it for Emiliano and I’m really proud the lads have done him justice.”
