Ex-Arsenal star Aaron Ramsey rolls back years with screamer but Chelsea loanee steals show

Aaron Ramsey scored his first goal back at Cardiff in style as he hit a vicious strike away at Leicester.

The 32-year-old returned to the Welsh side this summer after spending just one season at Ligue 1 side Nice.

Ramsey was unsurprisingly delighted with his goalGetty

Ramsey progressed through the ranks at Cardiff’s academy and into the first-team before signing for Arsenal in 2008.

He did in fact make a temporary return to the Bluebirds during a loan spell in 2011 but is now back permanently.

The midfielder has started in all of their Championship games so far this season, with the first two coming against Leeds and QPR.

Cardiff made the trip to recently relegated Leicester on Saturday and Ramsey was on hand to shine back in the club’s colours.

It was the Foxes who took the lead at the King Power Stadium thanks to a thumping strike from Wanya Marcal-Madivadua.

However, Ramsey went one step further as his speculative effort from outside the box flew into the top-right corner.

It ensured both sides went into the break at 1-1, with Cardiff still looking for their first league win of the season.

Unfortunately for the Bluebirds, they will have to wait a little longer as Chelsea loanee Cesare Casadei scored the winner for Leicester in second half stoppage time.

Ramsey’s goal was his fourth ever for Cardiff in 31 appearances across three different spells.

He has played a further 491 matches away from the club at Arsenal, Juventus, Nice, Rangers and Nottingham Forest during his career.
