Steven Gerrard remained reluctant to be questioned about his apparent gesture after Rangers' 7-3 win over Midtjylland against Erik Sviatchenko
The Ibrox boss seemed to be taking action as the teams went down the tunnel at full time.
But the Gers boss played cool when he was asked about the incident, which, according to the claims of the former Celtic defender, the 39-year-old was an "apprentice" takes place.
Gerrard said, "Obviously he talked a lot in the media about where he came from. It was only a small farewell for him.
"I wish him all the best for the rest of the season."
Sviatchenko had claimed that the Ibrox boss was formerly in the shadow of former Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers.
The Dane said, "I do not know the circumstances that led Steven Gerrard to Rangers, but obviously he is a big name in the club and he has shown that progress has been made.
"For anyone involved in Scottish football, it is good that we had Brendan Rodgers at Celtic and now have the Glasgow Rangers apprentice, so to speak.
In the meantime, Gerrard praised his team's devastating early game before warning them not to drop their standards by conceding Evander's late consolation.
He said, "I thought we were outstanding, certainly for the first hour. Once the game was out of sight and we felt comfortable, we stopped basing ourselves and became a bit sloppy and a bit careless.
"Then they scored again, but until their goal we were outstanding in both games and deserve to qualify.
"I want my more experienced players in the group to see and control the games a little better, even if they get better or out of sight."
"I want the teams to leave here after making a difficult experience, instead of remembering the last 30 minutes and thinking Rangers have problems and become a bit incoherent.
"I'm a very fussy manager and although I thought we were outstanding for the first 60 minutes, we got a bit sloppy and carefree when we saw the game.
"In the meantime, Steven Davis has welcomed the addition of King in spite of increased competition in the midfield, saying:" I do not know him personally, but I know he has won the Premier League and played for Leicester for several years.
"He will be a good match and there will be more competition for places in the midfield areas where we are already strong. We score goals, but another goal threat can not hurt. "
