Watch: Gerwyn Price Slams 'Pathetic' Crowd After Grand Prix Quarter-Final Win

Watch: Gerwyn Price Slams 'Pathetic' Crowd After Grand Prix Quarter-Final Win

Darts needs a villain, and there is certainly no better example in the game at the moment than Gerwyn Price.

The Welshman is a hell of a player, winning the 2021 World Championships and currently sitting top of the world rankings.

He is also a very prickly character, one that rub opponents and spectators up the wrong way. There have been no shortage of examples down through the years, with another arriving last night.

Price booked his place in the semi-finals of the World Grand Prix in Leicester, defeating Dave Chisnall on a 3-0 scoreline.

This event normally takes place in Dublin, but was moved due to the current covid restrictions in Ireland. It's fair to say Price was not impressed with the crowd in the new venue.

Speaking to Sky Sports after his win, he labelled the Leicester spectators as 'pathetic' for the way they treated him throughout the match.

There's a lot more in the tank for me, it was a difficult game. Obviously the crowd was a but rubbish again, as you can hear.

But I won, so no matter what they do I will keep winning...

The crowd are absolutely pathetic... There is a little bit (of support)...

I don't care, I just want to keep winning. Sometimes the crowd are with me, sometimes they're against me, I don't care.

They can boo me or do what they want but I keep winning, so happy days.

It's fair to say that those in attendance didn't take too kindly to those comments.

Price will now take on Stephen Bunting in the semi-finals, hoping to retain the title he won for the first time in 2020.

We imagine the crowd will be fully behind on his quest to do so.
