Arsenal legend Perry Groves angered Tottenham supporters after he was seen celebrating a goal for the Gunners in the stands during the north London derby on Sunday.

Mikel Arteta’s side sealed a 3-2 win at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to maintain their push to win the Premier League title ahead of Manchester City.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s own goal handed Arsenal the lead in the 15th minute before Bukayo Saka and Kai Havertz extended the lead for the visitors by the break.

Groves, meanwhile, was sat in the media section of the stadium as he was working as a co-commentator for talkSPORT and was filmed fist-pumping the air while Arsenal were ahead.

Tottenham supporters who were sat near Groves became agitated after catching the former Arsenal winger celebrate during talkSPORT’s live radio broadcast.

The video saw one irate Tottenham supporter shout ‘get out’ repeatedly towards Groves after he had fist-pumped the air.

The supporter filming the video then said to Groves: ‘You should be ashamed of yourself, you’re on the radio, you’ll cause a riot here, you can’t do that, there’s kids here, it’s dangerous.’

The fan filming the incident then caught the attention of a nearby steward and said: ‘Excuse me, do you know that fella there? He shouldn’t be doing that.’

Groves then notices the fan behind him and the supporter said: ‘You shouldn’t be doing that, Pel, that’s a liberty. Come on, Perry. You know you’ve done wrong. You’re live on the radio, you shouldn’t be doing that Perry.’

A third fan then shouted at the steward, ‘get him out’, while another said, ‘he needs to go’.

Groves was then approached by the steward but remained on commentary for the remainder of the broadcast.

Groves made 205 appearances during his playing career for Arsenal and helped the club win two First Division titles and the League Cup.

The 59-year-old also works as a co-commentator for Arsenal’s in-house media channel.
