Arsenal plan guard of honour for Ramsey and Cech

Arsenal to hand Aaron Ramsey and Petr Cech a guard of honour before kickoff against Brighton on Sunday.

Ramsey will end his 11-year tenure with the club when he moves to Juventus on a free transfer at the end of the campaign.

And Cech, 36, will bring the curtain down on his illustrious career after over 440 top-flight games for both Chelsea and Arsenal.

The Sun says the Gunners plan a guard of honour for Ramsey and Cech ahead of their final Premier League home game of the season on Sunday.

Ahead of Arsenal's Europa League semi-final with Valencia, Unai Emery was full of praise for the Welshman.

He said: "For me it was a good experience [to work] with every player and with him especially, because he can transmit his energy and he showed me his heart is red with Arsenal.

"I wanted to enjoy it with him. I said to him one month ago that I wanted to do something important in his last matches with us - maybe he can come back in the future. It will not be with him on the pitch but he is still with us."
