Aaron Ramsey moved very quickly to clear up a hashtag misunderstanding on deadline day

Probably not the best thing to post, Aaron.

Posting a farewell social media message is the norm now for players whose team mates leave during the transfer window, but Aaron Ramsey confused a lot of people with his for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Chamberlain’s move to Liverpool from Arsenal prompted this from Ramsey, the Welsh central midfielder.

However, Ramsey was quick to quash all the talk his post had prompted, explaining that ‘Shaaambles’ was in fact the Ox’s nickname around the training ground.

Liverpool fans will be hoping that doesn’t relate to the standard of his football.
