Messi fined for birthday jig

Barcelona - The Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) on Tuesday fined Barcelona star Lionel Messi after the Argentine world player of the year showed off a vest bearing a birthday message to his mother.

Media reports said the fine was believed to be between 2 000 and 3 000 euros which the RFEF deemed Messi should pay for ripping off his shirt after scoring at the weekend against Racing Santander and showing a vest emblazoned with the words "Happy Birthday Mum".

The Federation stipulates that no such slogans should be shown off.

Barcelona won the match 3-0 to maintain their position as La Liga leaders ahead of Real Madrid.
