Kieran Tierney apologized on social media after a picture with his middle finger up was shared after his side’s 2-0 win over Manchester City.
Tierney had to save his face after he was initially criticized for an offensive gesture following the Gunners semi-final victory.
The now deleted picture showed the the entire squad celebrating with fans on Twitter quick to spot and point out Tierney’s gesture.
Tierney has impressed for the Gunners lately and seemed to acknowledge his joke may not have gone down too well with everyone online.
“Didn’t realise this was getting posted,” Tierney said on Twitter in reference to the picture.
“Was a joke with the kitman. I’m so sorry if it caused anyone offence – wasn’t meant in anyway.”
Thankfully for Tierney, most fans weren’t offended, with one that is currently battling cancer seeing the lighter side of the joke.
The 23-year-old was quick to acknowledge the Gunners supporter and urged him to keep fighting. He then made the fan’s day by promising to send him his Arsenal jersey worn in the club’s 2-0 win over Manchester City on Saturday.
Along with the clean-sheet, Tierney provided the assist for Aubameyang’s second goal against Manchester City.
The left-back has received lots of praise from Mikel Arteta and is beginning to prove to be a bargain buy for the Gunners.
