Stoke City boss Mark Hughes is delighted for fellow Welshman Aaron Ramsey over his current form for Arsenal.

Hughes has paid tribute to his compatriot, acknowledging the way that the midfielder has battled through a difficult time at the club last season.

He said: "He's an outstanding player, now doing exceptionally well - he's adding goals to his technical ability which he has not been able to do.

"I watched Arsenal a few times last season and I thought he was struggling with his form and on occasions the crowd at Arsenal lost patience with him. For him to show the courage to come back from that is credit to him."
