LAURENT KOSCIELNY has been blasted by Arsenal fans after he delivered yet another dig at the club he walked out on.

The French defender completed a £4.6million move to Ligue 1 outfit Bordeaux after nine years service with the Gunners.

But things ended on the sourest of terms for the club captain after he went AWOL for their pre-season tour of America.

Koscielny angered the club after refusing to join the rest of his team-mates to push through a move back home.

And just hours after the deal was rubber-stamped, Koscielny angered Arsenal fans still further.

A clip showing him ripping off the Arsenal shirt and tossing it away to reveal the Bordeaux version was never going to go down well.

Writing on Twitter, Robert Magee posted: "No respect for Arsenal here."

Marc wrote that it was "the most disrespectful s*** I've ever seen", while another Gooner posted that it was "disgusting" and "absolutely disgraceful".

BITTER WAY TO END THINGS

And one fan account added: "You shouldn't have done that to Arsenal shirt.

"Very very disrespectful, I'm disappointed Kos."

"Spineless", "snake", and "has-been" are just some of the jabs at the former France international.

Most of the comments from Arsenal fans on the clip, unsurprisingly, can't be printed here.

Despite guiding the club to three FA Cup titles, Arsenal's leaving message to Koscielny was short and sweet.

Posted on Twitter, it read: "Laurent Koscielny is leaving us to join Ligue 1 side Bordeaux."

A further statement on their website read: "Laurent Koscielny is leaving us to join Ligue 1 side Bordeaux.

"The centre back has made 353 appearances for us since signing from Lorient in 2010. He was part of our Emirates FA Cup-winning squads in 2014, 2015 and 2017.

"Laurent, who started his career in the French second division at Guingamp in 2004, has played 51 matches for France and was entering the final year of his current contract with us.

"We decided to sanction his move to Bordeaux once we agreed acceptable transfer terms.

"We thank Laurent for his contribution to the club and wish him all the best for the future.

"The transfer is subject to the completion of regulatory processes."
