CHELSEA star Olivier Giroud has been slammed by Piers Morgan after appearing to mock old club Arsenal in wild Europa League trophy celebrations.
The ex-Gunners striker was seen as a fan favourite at the Emirates, and was still a cult hero despite a move to Stamford Bridge.
He scored last night to sink his former side, as the Blues went on to smash Morgan’s beloved club 4-1 in the final and miss out on Champions League football.
And in wild celebrations on the coach, Giroud is seen lifting the trophy aloft and mockingly shouting “Thank you Arsenal”.
The Good Morning Britain host did not take the joke well though, nor did thousands of Arsenal fans on social media.
Fuming season ticket holder Morgan tweeted: “Giroud, Arsenal’s worst lead striker in the past 35 years, cements his legacy.”
The French forward started the scoring last night, before Eden Hazard and Pedro netted in a thumping in Baku, Azerbaijan.
One fan replied to Morgan by saying: “Our thoughts and prayers are with you in these difficult times Piers.”
Another added: “Repeat after me Piers: ‘Giroud is a Chelsea legend’.

And one Tweeted: “This is how you screw up your entire legacy. Disgraceful.”
