Aaron Ramsey has played his last game for Arsenal, after Gunners boss Unai Emery confirmed that the midfielder will miss the rest of the season due to a hamstring injury.
The Welshman picked up the injury in the second-leg of Arsenal's Europa League quarter-final win over Napoli, and he will now be denied a farewell appearance having agreed to join Juventus on a free transfer this summer.
There was hope that Ramsey would recover before the end of the season, but Unai Emery has confirmed he won't play for the Gunners again, while also paying tribute to the 28-year-old.
“We can't use him, injuries come for players like that and we have players who can play,” he said.

“He signed for Juventus but he is still a professional and always fought for the club.
“Some other players might stop fighting - but he loves this club so he stayed 100 per cent. He has a great mentality. I will miss him a lot - we have good memories.
“I want to do something important. It will not be with him on the pitch - but still with him, with us.”
