Stan Collymore has blasted Chelsea striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for joining Barcelona players to celebrate their 2-1 victory over Real Madrid at the Camp Nou on Sunday.

“What can you say about the photo Ferran Torres shared of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang celebrating with the Barcelona squad after they beat Real Madrid on Sunday? – It’s shambolic,” Collymore told CaughtOffside.

“A lot of younger fans will say ‘what’s the problem?’ – but it’s not right. This is an elite-level competitive sport – you do not cross certain boundaries and celebrating another team’s victory inside their dressing room is an absolute no-no.

“We always refer back to the likes of Roy Keane and Graeme Souness when we’re talking about passion and loyalty to a club and I know it’s hard for anyone to emulate the way those two and others from their era conducted themselves, but Aubameyang is so far away from it it’s unreal.

“He’s a Chelsea player so while he’s there, he should be coming across as blue through and through but he doesn’t.

“He doesn’t really stand for anything, he’s ubiquitous. He’s primed to disappear into the Middle East and Graham Potter will probably be thanking his lucky stars.”
