Alex Song claims his wife once told him to dye his hair blonde so he would stand out more on the pitch (she should have told him to be better at football as that would have worked too) and it seems as if Aaron Ramsey has followed suit.

Except, the Welshman didn’t go blonde – he went platinum!

Ramsey is a man who is well known for being quite dull. He’s not quite at your Michael Owen or James Milner levels, but, let’s face it, he rarely does much exciting. He’s the yin to Jack Wilshere’s yang.

Needless to say, given this fact, his new Instagram post caught us a little unawares:

My boy ❤️
