Arsenal icon Ian Wright goes wild and crazy as he celebrates Declan Rice’s last winute winer for Arsenal against Luton last night and laughs as he reads what James Maddison about Arsenal’s chance of winning the Premier League title

Arsenal legend Ian Wright couldn’t contain his excitement as he celebrated Declan Rice’s dramatic injury-time winner against Luton, securing a 4-3 victory for the Gunners on Tuesday. The jubilant scene unfolded after summer signing Rice scored a crucial header in the 97th minute, prompting Wright to go wild in a video posted by Optus Sport.

In the midst of his celebration, Wright also took a playful jab at James Maddison. Reading from a news story in The Mirror, Wright highlighted Maddison’s mixed feelings about his England teammate Rice, who had moved to Arsenal for a landmark £105 million during the summer. Despite Maddison expressing admiration for Rice’s talent, he humorously admitted, “I hate that he plays for Arsenal.”

The thrilling match saw Arsenal trailing 3-2 before Kai Havertz leveled the score at 3-3 in the 60th minute. The Gunners, determined to secure a late victory, witnessed Rice’s heroic moment as he rose high to meet a cross from Martin Odegaard, heading home the winner deep into injury time.

The elation was shared by Arsenal fans at Kenilworth Road, capturing the ecstatic reaction of Ian Wright in the studio. Leaping out of his chair, he enthusiastically shouted, “Arsenal! Arsenal!” while showcasing the news article about Maddison’s playful disdain for Rice joining the Gunners.

Lionel Messi, the Argentina captain, praises Arsenal’s maestro, declaring him as his favorite Arsenal player – not Saka, not Odegaard, and not Declan Rice.”

Declan Rice, now a pivotal figure in Arsenal’s lineup, has made 22 appearances for the club since his arrival at the Emirates. Gunners supporters have been quick to acclaim him as “ridiculous” for his impressive contributions on the field.

Meanwhile, James Maddison, who moved to Tottenham earlier in the season after Leicester’s relegation, recently praised Rice’s technical abilities in an interview on Amazon Prime. Despite the playful banter, Maddison acknowledged Rice as a “top, top player,” expressing his regret that he now represents Arsenal.

Maddison’s season has been hampered by an ankle injury sustained against Chelsea, keeping him out of action until at least the new year. As the football drama unfolds, the banter between players adds an entertaining layer to the ongoing narratives in the Premier League.
