Arsenal fans love Ian Wright’s wild celebration after 2-0 win at Newcastle as FUMING pal Alan Shearer looks on
JUBILANT Arsenal fans could not get enough of Ian Wright’s wild celebrations in front of Alan Shearer.
The former strikers and fellow pundits are good pals.
But their friendship was put on hold when their beloved teams went head to head at St James’ Park.
And Wrighty did not hold back at all as he rejoiced in Arsenal’s 2-0 victory over Newcastle as the pair covered the game for the Premier League’s Matchday Live show.
Martin Odegaard’s long-range drive fired the Gunners in front and a Fabian Schar own goal sealed the points to keep the pressure on table-toppers Manchester City.
In a brilliant video shared by the ex-Highbury hero, Wright lets out a whole host of enthusiastic whoops, cheers, shouting and fist-pumping – before shouting: “Look at Al’s face.”
But in the background, Geordie Shearer remains largely expressionless before allowing himself a wry smile.
Wright later posted the clip on Twitter, adding kissing and smiling emojis as he tagged his Match of the Day mate.
And Gunners supporters absolutely loved the antics from the second-highest goalscorer in their history.
One said: “I love him so much.”

Another wrote: “Can we just build a statue of Ian Wright’s celebration at the Emirates stadium please. LEGEND.”
A third added: “Never thought I could love you more when you played for The Arsenal. Now you’re a fan of The Arsenal just like me. I love you more and more.”
And a final user commented: “Absolute legend. And Shearer is top drawer for taking that…”
The win – led by influential captain Odegaard – leaves Mikel Arteta’s side are one point behind City having played one game more.
And that led to Piers Morgan rallying fellow supporters to get behind the team, refusing to give up hope on an unlikely title win having checked City’s tough run-in.
