Ally McCoist has been left absolutely stunned by reports which claim Arsenal could lose Aaron Ramsey for nothing at the end of the season, after failing to tie him down to a new contract.
The Welshman is in the final year of his Gunners contract and has been locked in talks over a new deal with the club.
But rumours emerged on Wednesday which claim those negotiations have now collapsed.
It means Ramsey is likely to leave the Emirates Stadium for FREE in the summer when his deal expires.
NOT JUST RAMBO: The Arsenal players whose contracts also expire in 2019
The 27-year-old has been linked with a host of clubs in recent months as his Arsenal deal winds down, including Premier League rivals Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United, while Italian champions Juventus are also said to be interested.
Scottish football legend McCoist says Ramsey is good enough to play in any of Europe’s top leagues, and can’t understand why Arsenal could make such a blunder by letting him go for nothing.
Speaking on Thursday’s Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, the talkSPORT favourite said: “If that’s been allowed to happen that is absolutely unbelievable.
“Not just the football side of it, it’s the business side of it – if they’ve allowed Ramsey’s contract to expire in the summer that’s absolutely incredible.
“In fact, it’s that incredible, I can’t believe it’s true.
“A host of clubs who would want to take Aaron Ramsey.
“He could play anywhere, he would certainly be suited to playing somewhere else in Europe – he could play in Spain or in Italy.
“It’s another little headache Arsenal have got if that’s the case.”
