TalkSPORT host Andy Goldstein has slammed Arsenal's Gabriel Magahles for his tweet mocking Brentford and Ivan Toney after the Gunners defeated them 3-0 in their Premier League game last week.

“I’d be embarrassed!” 😳“If we beat #BrentfordFC & Ronaldo or Bruno tweeted that, I’d be embarrassed!”Andy Goldstein slams #AFC’s Gabriel for mocking Brentford & Toney on Twitter. 👀

Gabriel used Ivan Toney's tweet from last season, when the Bees defeated the Gunners 2-0, to mock him after securing a revenge win at the Gtech Community Stadium on Saturday, September 18.

Gabriel tweeted:

''Nice kick about with the boys.''
Nice kick about with the boys. ⚽️❤️🤍 @Arsenal

Goldstein was unhappy with Gabriel taking a shot at Brentford and Ivan Toney and said that he would be 'embarrassed' if Cristiano Ronaldo or Bruno Fernandes shared the same post. He said via Sports Bible:

"I’d be embarrassed!''
''If we beat Brentford and [Cristiano] Ronaldo or Bruno [Fernandes] tweeted that, I’d be embarrassed!"

A recent Amazon All or Nothing documentary showed how Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta used Toney's tweet from last season to inspire his team to do better against Brentford in their reverse fixture, which the Gunners eventually won 2-1.

However, Gabriel Magalhaes was not done defeating Brentford in the reverse fixture last season and dragged the beef into the new season as well. Gabriel's dig at Brentford and Ivan Toney did not go down well with many football pundits and former players.

Ivan Toney himself laughed off Gabriel's 'cringey' comments despite ending up on the losing side of the match. The Brentford striker added that the current Arsenal squad and their quality of the game is very different from what it was last season.

Amid all the controversy surrounding Toney's tweet from last season and Gabriel not letting the previous humiliation rest, Rio Ferdinand was amongst the only football personalities defending the Arsenal star, adding that he is 'loving the banter'.
