Arsenal's Gallas plays down shirt throwing incident

Arsenal captain William Gallas insists there was nothing to read into his actions at the end of Sunday's defeat at Chelsea.

At Stamford Bridge, Gallas went over to the travelling supporters and threw his shirt into the crowd. However, the Arsenal captain insists that was nothing unusual or any kind of statement.

"I was saying nothing," he said. "They had come here supporting us, and for them it was difficult to accept we lost so I gave them my shirt, it was nothing special. I did it before, did it on Sunday and maybe will do it in the next game.

"We know our supporters are there for us all the time, and that it is difficult for them to see us lose."
