Parlour told talkSPORT : “Wilshere has to learn he can’t do that [make those gestures],”.

“It does wind you up at times but I saw him the other night and I told him he’s got to learn.

“The best way to get back at the fans is to score a goal, then you’ve done your job. The fans are trying to put you off but you’ve got to rise above that. You’ve got to go out there and know your job, and do your job.

“You can’t get involved with the crowd. And if you can go to places like the Etihad, play well and get a result, then you’re showing the fans what you’re made of.”
