Aaron Ramsey won't get to say goodbye to Arsenal fans as he appears to have played his last game for the club.

The 28-year-old has been told his season is over - and he can't play in the Europa League Cup final in Baku on May 29 if the Gunners get there.

The Welshman is leaving in June after a contract offer was withdrawn last year.

He will instead be paid a staggering £400,000-a-week to play for Juventus in Serie A next season.

Ramsey will not get to say a proper goodbye to the fans now, leaving the club he has served for 11 years.

His painful hamstring injury is too severe for him to be considered for first team action, report The Sun .

How Unai Emery could do with the midfielder after three straight Premier League defeats rocked their season.

Martin Keown slammed his old side for their way they are ending the season.

"It no longer matters who Arsenal play away from home - when the Gunners leave the Emirates, their opponents view them as little more than cannon fodder," he said in his Daily Mail column.

"This latest surrender at Leicester was Arsenal's eighth defeat on the road this season. Of their 37 away trips over the past two campaigns they have lost 19, drawn eight and have won just 10.

"That record is embarrassing. At the very least, teams know that if they can dig in against Arsenal and stay in the game for long enough, at some point they will collapse.

"When you go down to ten men, you have to adopt a siege mentality. You might not win the game but you certainly are not going to lose. Arsenal used to have that reputation.

"They remain the only team in Premier League history to have won more games with ten men than they have lost."

He added: "Where are the leaders in the current Arsenal team demanding these kind of performances? When Arsenal fall behind on the road now, or go down to 10 men, there does not seem to be any belief that they can get a result.

"It is the away form that remains their Achilles' heel. Emery can help his players by settling on a system. He keeps switching between a back three and a back four and that cannot help the side develop any consistency.

Arsenal's travel sickness is a problem that Emery has inherited but it is his responsibility to fix it.

"Until he does, it will prevent any real success from returning to this club."

The Gunners realistically now must beat Brighton and Burnley to have any hope of finishing in the top four.
