On Sunday, Pat Rice bade farewell to Arsenal after 44 years of loyal service as player, coach and assistant manager.

His team embodied the Irishman's steely character as they saw out a tense, tight 3-2 win at West Brom to secure third place in the table and, with it, a guaranteed spot in next season's Champions League.

As the players celebrated on the pitch after the game, captain Robin van Persie called for Rice to join them. In front of nearly 3,000 ecstatic supporters, the team gave their departing backroom member the 'bumps'. He then waved his goodbyes and left the pitch for the last time.
