Roy Keane Brutally Tears Into Arsenal's 'Ridiculous' Celebrations Against Newcastle
Manchester United legend Roy Keane has slated Arsenal's "ridiculous" celebrations in their 4-0 thrashing of Newcastle at the Emirates.
The Gunners sealed their first win since New Year's Day as they ran riot against the Magpies on Sunday.
And Arsenal players swamped Alexandre Lacazette deep into stoppage time after the out-of-form Arsenal striker broke his goal drought.
Speaking on Sky Sports' Monday Night Football, Keane said that he was embarrassed at how the players celebrated like they were "10 points clear in the league."
The 48-year-old former United captain explained: "Way over the top.
"When I was watching it, I thought they were 10 points clear in the league the way they were celebrating towards the end.
"Forget Arsenal. Way over-the-top celebrations to beating Newcastle 4-0. Ridiculous."
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang opened the scoring in the second half before Nicolas Pepe doubled the Gunners' lead minutes later.

Mesut Ozil grabbed Arsenal's third and Lacazette added his side's fourth as Mikel Arteta's men claimed all three points.
Lacazette, who hadn't scored since December, revealed that he was "touched" at how his teammates reacted to his goal.
"I am really, really happy because I waited for this moment for a long time," the 28-year-old Frenchman said.
"As well, I am touched because of the way all my teammates reacted when I scored that goal.
"It means a lot to me and a lot for the spirit we have in the team. This is good.
"It was really hard and complicated, because sometimes I had some games with no chances, sometimes I missed or the goalkeeper saved it.
"Of course, for a striker it is always hard to not score, but it happens in football. Hopefully, it is the last time for me."
