Paul Merson has blasted Arsenal for the "criminal" handling of Aaron Ramsey's contract situation.

The football expert has thinks his former side Arsenal have been "stupid" for allowing the midfield ace leave the Emirates at this stage of his career.

"It's stupidity from Arsenal to allow someone of Ramsey's quality to let their contract run down," he told Sky Sports.

"It's yet another player after Alexis Sanchez, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Theo Walcott. Players' contracts come to an end then they all leave on frees. 

"In footballing terms, it's criminal. It's like buying an £80m house, waiting for the leasehold to run out and losing the house."
