Southgate speakeasy.

GARETH Southgate does not have a problem with good-natured banter inside football grounds in the wake of Sol Campbell's accusations of abuse.

The Middlesbrough boss said: "I don't know if it has got worse. You tend to hear more because there are more microphones and cameras around.

"It depends how abusive it is and the type of things that are said.

"It's a game where industrial language is rife on the field; it is bound to be rife off the field.

"As a manager or a player, you do not like stick, but as long as it is good-natured and the banter finishes when you leave the ground, then I don't have too many issues with it.

"But then I don't know the incidents Sol is referring to."
