The Crystal Palace winger, who signed for the Yorkshire club’s historic rivals Manchester United in the January transfer window before being loaned back to Palace, had been jeered throughout this Championship encounter by the 3,000 travelling fans and responded by showing them his middle finger.On his Twitter site, Zaha wrote: “[I want] to apologise for the gesture I did towards the Leeds fans in yesterday’s game. Very unprofessional from me.”The incident overshadowed what was otherwise a hard-earned draw for Palace against a Leeds side still hopeful of forcing their way into the play-offs.Yet while the result may not have been the perfect birthday present for their manager Ian Holloway, he remains “exhilarated” by life at Selhurst Park.Holloway professes a youthful zest despite turning 50 tomorrow, believing that he has “plenty more years to come” with Crystal Palace.
