Piers Morgan’s boozy night ruined and star left fuming as Arsenal are knocked out of Europa League

'Utter c**p'

PIERS Morgan headed out for a boozy dinner before watching Arsenal tonight - but hours later he was left fuming.

The 56-year-old TV favourite joined his son Spencer and daughter Elise at his local restaurant Il Portico in London's Kensington.

His son, 27, snapped the former Good Morning Britain star clutching a glass of red wine in front of a ham and cheese platter.

He tagged in the restaurant as "the gaff" and captioned the pic: "The calm before the shambles."

Piers shared the same shot on his Instagram page for his 1.6million followers.

However, the Arsenal-supporting family were left disappointed when the team were knocked out of the Europa League by Villarreal.

The North London side struggled to a a 0-0 draw at the Emirates - a 1-2 loss on aggregate.

Writing on Twitter, the social network he slammed earlier today, Piers fumed: "Utter c**p."

And his mood was unlikely to have been lifted when ex-Manchester United player Rio Ferdinand tweeted him saying: "U ok? @piersmorgan #Tears4Piers."

Piers turned on Arsenal's coach, writing in another tweet: "Why does Mikel Arteta deserve to continue as manager?

"This season has been a total disaster, we’re playing dreadful football, and we just got kicked out of Europe by the guy he replaced. Humiliating."

Villareal are managed by Unai Emery, the former Arsenal head coach, who was dismissed by the club in 2019.
