Rio Ferdinand and Steven Gerrard react to ridiculous Aaron Ramsey moment

Despite both sides already being through to the knockout stages, Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain managed to put on quite a show in their 2-2 draw at the Emirates.

Edinson Cavani opened the scoring for the French champions after 18 minutes, but it seemed inevitable that his 'punch' on Aaron Ramsey was all anyone wanted to talk about after the game.

The Welshman appeared to massively overreact to Cavani's raised hand, and the moment subsequently received quite a lot of reaction itself.

Premier League legends Rio Ferdinand, Gary Lineker, and Steven Gerrard were on the BT Sport panel watching the game, and none of them were particularly impressed by Ramsey's antics.

The attacking midfielder has had such an impressive year on the pitch. Only a few days ago, he was named on the 40-man shortlist for UEFA's Team of the Year thanks to his exploits at Euro 2016.

All the same, there's no excuse for this - if you haven't seen it yet, take a look below, with the reaction from Ferdinand and co. Gerrard's little dig at the end is hilarious.

The trouble didn't end there for Cavani either. An in-form Olivier Giroud, fresh from scoring a penalty on the stroke of half-time, had strong words with the striker heading into the tunnel, lightly grabbing his neck before he shrugged him off.

It's amazing that tensions ran so high given that both teams were already through, but it's fair to say that Arsene Wenger and Unai Emery have a lot riding on the Champions League this season.

Arsenal will want to finish top of the group and avoid a potential clash with the likes of Barcelona, Juventus, or Borussia Dortmund, but Bayern Munich or Real Madrid could lie in waiting if they come second.

The Gunners won't be too disappointed with a draw on the night, but Rio's probably right that Rambo might be a little embarrassed when he re-watches that moment - though to be fair, there was no real need for the push in the first place from the PSG star.

What's worse - Cavani's push or Ramsey's playacting? Have your say in the comments.
