ARSENAL goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale refused to shake hands with a pitch invader during the Carabao Cup semi-final against Liverpool at the Emirates.

The Gunners took on the Reds in the second leg and missed out on a Wembley showdown with Chelsea in the final after losing 2-0 following a brace by Diogo Jota.

During the match an attention-seeking fan jumped the barricade and broke into the pitch during second half.

The pitch invader ran towards the ball but was denied by an angry Ramsdale who picked it up right on time.

The young fan then tried to shake hands with the England international but the north Londoners’ shot-stopper completely disregarded him.

The fans cheered from the stands once the nuisance pitch invader was eventually tackled to the ground by stewards, who carried him off out of sight.

Football has developed quite a growing issue of fans invading the pitch in recent months and this was just another case.

The incident offered brief respite for Arsenal but couldn’t save them from elimination and manager Mikel Arteta admitted they were “really disappointed” with the result.

Arteta said: “We’re really disappointed not to be in the final – but we played against a top side.

“We had big moments in the first half, and the second half. When you have those, you have to score.

“The first time they went through our press with a bit of luck they scored.

“With one pass, they are in front of goal, and when they are there they put the game to bed.

“We had good moments, we had good situations – but we have to score in those situations. We have to score goals to go through, and we’re out.”
