ARSENAL MIDFIELDER AARON Ramsey appeared on Sky One’s A League of Their Own last night alongside the likes of Jamie Redknapp, Freddie Flintoff, Kate Abdo and Jack Whitehall.

When asked by presenter James Corden who his hero was growing up, the Welshman explained how his love for Cardiff City meant he idolised ex-Bluebirds captain and 16-time-capped Ireland midfielder Graham Kavanagh.

Ramsey also trolled Spurs fans by saying the first thing he would do as Prime Minister is relegate Tottenham — although we’re pretty sure that’s not how it works.
