Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsdale spotted mocking Tottenham Hotspur fans during derby, claims Glenn Murray
According to former Crystal Palace striker Glenn Murray, Aaron Ramsdale was spotted waving towards the almost empty Tottenham Hotspur away end at the Emirates during his team’s 3-1 derby win.
The Lilywhites were largely wasteful leading up to Emerson Royal’s red card in the 62nd minute with the scoreline in the host’s favour at 2-1. After the Brazilian international’s sending-off, Spurs never looked like they were going to get anything out of the game.
Granit Xhaka’s goal just five minutes after Emerson’s incident put the icing on the cake for the Gunners. As per Murray while speaking on BBC Radio 5 (h/t Express), Ramsdale was seen teasing Spurs fans during the closing stages of the game.
By then, it wasn’t a surprise that seats were largely empty in our end. It’s a daunting task having to stay back and hear rival fans gloat in their own backyard. He said:
“It’s Arsenal’s day without doubt. The highlight of the last 10 minutes has been seeing Aaron Ramsdale turn round and wave to the almost empty Spurs away end. I love players showing their personality because it’s happening less and less on the pitch.”
One can imagine the stick our fans would be giving the England international when he was in goal for the Gunners. But hopefully, the ex-Sheffield United man is aware of the fact that Arsenal play at N17 this season in the reverse fixture.
It’s safe to say that during that match, our fans will be on his case and try to force a mistake out of him. One can’t blame him for celebrating his team’s win but gloating in front of rival fans can prove to be embarrassing if you then make a mistake against the same opposition in the near future.
The two north London rivals are scheduled to meet in January 2023 next. Until then, we have the Champions League to focus on and a title race that also needs our attention. These aren’t really bad days to be a Spurs fan, in all honesty.
