Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has taken aim at Manchester United legend Paul Scholes.

Scholes claimed on TV that the Gunners lacked character, fight and discipline - and that they played 'tippy-tappy' football.

"It was a bit strange," the midfielder told the Daily Star of Scholes' outburst. "This season we have been solid defensively.

"There are a lot of leaders in the team, who are hungry to win. Mikel (Arteta), Per (Mertesacker), and people like myself, Jack (Wilshere) and (Lukas) Podolski - all of us are very passionate and leaders on the pitch who help each other.

"I think it is just because we haven't won anything for a while and people are just looking for things to say. Sometimes things just come out of your mouth."
