Aaron Ramsey refused to shake Piers Morgan's hand

Piers Morgan proudly divides opinion amongst Arsenal fans. The pessimists tend to agree with his outlandish views while the optimists try their best–but regularly fail–to ignore him.

The former CNN employee never hesitates to share his thoughts with his 4.43 million Twitter followers. These brain farts are usually in response to a poor Arsenal performance.

Sometimes Arsene Wenger needs to leave, other times he needs to be sacked. Sometimes he finds time to criticise the players on the pitch. One player who was targeted more regularly was Aaron Ramsey.

The Welsh midfielder is now a key player for the Gunners, but two seasons ago he was the black sheep of Wenger's squad. Morgan was one of many Arsenal fans that tried to 'troll' him out of the club.

The critics have left, but Ramsey has not forgotten the abuse he received from Morgan, as their chance encounter at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday proved.

Tweeting on Twitter

Taking to Twitter, Morgan, who was present for Arsenal's 0-0 draw against Chelsea, extended his hand in the direction of Ramsey after bumping into him somewhere near the swanky Diamond Club and expected the 24-year-old to do the same.

What happened next left his face more red than it usually is, possibly turning him into some kind of human beetroot man for a few excruciating seconds (speculating).

Ramsey's revival

Ramsey, as Morgan admitted, played well yesterday but his form in the current campaign has failed to match that of last year.

The midfielder scored an impressive 13 goals in 27 starts for the Gunners last year and could have challenged for the club's top scorer if a thigh injury had not kept him out for over three months.


This season has not been as spectacular for Ramsey but he has still been a key part to Wenger's plans.

At 24-years-old, Ramsey has plenty of time to get even better and could potentially become one of the best midfielders in the Premier League. He is certainly seen as a better option than Jack Wilshere, who failed to make it off the bench on Sunday.


Was Aaron Ramsey right to refuse Piers Morgan's hand or is it time for him to move on?
