Ian Wright: I'm ashamed of Arsenal and Tottenham fans

Arsenal legend Ian Wright says he is unimpressed with some supporters of the club, and those of rivals Tottenham.

Relations between Arsenal and Tottenham supporters have never been lower, illustrated by the recent furore over Theo Walcott.

The England winger taunted Spurs supporters by holding up his fingers to show indicate the 2-0 scoreline, while fans rained down missiles towards him.

In light of the news the forward will be out for the rest of the season, Spurs fans revelled in the news.

Their gleeful responses were met with disdain from Arsenal legend Ian Wright, who wrote on Twitter:

The reaction of Tottenham fans caused real anger, with a small minority of Arsenal fans accused of making anti-semitic comments, highlighted by Stan Collymore on Twitter, which were reported to the police.

Wright attempted to show he was even-handed by expressing his own disgust at those comments.

The bad blood between fans could not be more prevalent that it has been over the past 24 hours, but it seems to us, the answer for everybody is to calm down a little.
