Gary Lineker has criticised supporters who booed Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.

A video appears to show Wenger, 65, being jeered by fans when boarding a train following his side's 3-2 Premier League defeat at Stoke on Saturday.

"Just saw the Wenger abuse video," tweeted former England striker and BBC Sport presenter Lineker.

"Disgustingly disrespectful and totally inexcusable, regardless of any football results."

The Gunners were 3-0 down to Stoke before staging a comeback which ultimately fell short.

Wenger was also the target of criticism from Arsenal fans during his side's recent 1-0 win at West Brom.

At The Hawthorns, some Gunners supporters unveiled a banner that read: "Arsene, thanks for the memories but it's time to say goodbye."

Arsenal ended a run of nine years without a trophy by winning the FA Cup in May but have not won the league since 2004 and are currently sixth in the top flight.
