Emre apologizes for press box hand gesture but, apology did not excepted by Turkish media!

Newcastle United midfielder Emre has issued a public apology after a launching a furious tirade at the Turkish media. The 27-year-old made hand gestures and shouted towards the press box after his country's first goal in their 3-0 Euro 2008 qualifier victory over Hungary in Istanbul on Wednesday evening. Reports from Turkey suggest he had been angered by criticism of national coach Fatih Terim following the 2-2 draw with Malta, as well as stories linking him with a move back to Galatasaray.

Emre said: 'This action was not for everybody, but only one person in the Press - he knows it.'

The former Inter Milan star returned to Tyneside with a knee injury which is likely to keep him out of Monday night's Premier League trip to Derby.
