October 25, 2013 10:43 IST

Paris St Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic escaped a ban on Thursday for mimicking pointing a gun at the opposition bench in a Ligue 1 game against Toulouse last month.

Zlatan IbrahimovicThe Sweden striker made the gesture when he was replaced during the match on September 28 but rather than a ban, a disciplinary hearing on Thursday simply reminded him of his future conduct.

French champions PSG, who are top of the Ligue 1 standings with 24 points from 10 games, travel to St Etienne on Sunday.

Ibrahimovic, who has scored five league goals this season, has been in terrific form lately, netting four in Wednesday's 5-0 away demolition of Anderlecht in the Champions League.
