Ex-Celtic fringe player takes reins at Arsenal after Emery sacked

Former Celtic fringe player Freddie Ljungberg has taken over as interim boss at Arsenal following the sacking over Unai Emery.

Emery got his jotters after a dismal start to the season culminated in last night’s home defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt.

Former Gunners star Ljungberg will take charge of the team on a temporary basis.

The Swede signed for Neil Lennon’s side in January 2010 and an expected debut against Rangers failed to materialise.

When he did pull on the Hoops, it was against indeed against Rangers, but rather the club that hails from Berwick.

Celtic won the match 2-0 with Ljungberg failing to impress and being hooked for Scott Brown with just over an hour on the clock.

Goals from Majstorovic and Brown sent Celtic on the road to Hampden, where they won the Cup with a 3-0 win over Motherwell.

It was a rare start for the former underpants model, who signed on a free transfer after leaving MLS side Chicago Fire.

He made eight appearances and said his farewells to Glasgow in the summer.

Arsenal fans had turned against Emery and last night’s embarrassment was played out in front of a sparse crowd at the Emirates.

With Arsenal in turmoil and his new club struggling in the league and in Europe, while the Bhoys have already guaranteed top spot in Group E, maybe another former Celt is having second thoughts about his decision to push for a move to take his career onto the ‘next level’.
