Arsenal fans go wild over Ian Wright’s Twitter exchange with Gunnersaurus

And Gunners fans can’t get enough of the unlikely duo partnering up for a day of festivities.

Most football supporters will recognise Gunnersaurus as the larger-than-life dinosaur who has been Arsenal’s mascot since 1994.

The London club ran a contest for their younger fans, known as Junior Gunners, to design a new mascot.

Gunnersaurus was designed by an 11-year-old and subsequently brought to life for his first game against Manchester City.

Arsenal beat the present reigning Premier League champions 3-0, with goals from Kevin Campbell, Alan Smith and Wright.

That day witnessed the beginning of a special bond that has formed between the ex-England striker and the 8 foot tall green dinosaur.

And two-and-a-half decades later, the duo are planning to celebrate his momentous day in style.

“@IanWright0 you busy tomorrow? #GunnersBirthday” tweeted Gunnersaurus, accompanied by a winky face emoji.

“What’s the plan G?” replied Wright alongside a shades-wearing emoji.

Arsenal fans replied with their own suggestions for what the iconic duo should get up to for the big day.

“Jurassic Park with London Symphony Orchestra,” came one reply.

“Why has Gunnersaurus got better handwriting than me?” questioned another.
