Steven Gerrard has hit out at Aaron Ramsey for his conduct during Arsenal's Champions League clash with Paris Saint Germain.

The Welsh international was involved in a confrontation with Cavani at the Emirates Stadium close to half-time.

The Arsenal midfielder confronted Cavani for trying to delay a penalty won by Alexis Sanchez in the first half and at the end of it all, the latter appeared to have tapped the former on the chest.

Ramsey held on to his face instead, before calling the attention of the referee who didn't mete out any punishment to the offender.

Reacting to the scene, Gerrard said in an interview on BT Sport that Ramsey acted unprofessionally for trying to mislead the referee and as such should be embarrassed.

"I think he should be a little embarrassed by that. I thought the Welsh are meant to be tough!", the Liverpool legend said.

Rio Ferdinand was also on the same side as his fellow pundit. The former Manchester United defender said:

"I think there was a bit of over-reacting from Ramsey. I think if he was a foreign player we'd be going mad."

Ian Wright however objected to the claim of Ferdinand and Gerrard as he feels Cavani should have been sent off.

"Cavani has taken the ball to bide time, maybe put a bit more pressure on Giroud and I think he's very lucky," he said.

"To throw his hand like that... I don't think it's that bad, but his arm is very aggressive, he could easily have gone for that."
