MARTIN KEOWN asked “do you want me to leave?” as he threatened to storm out of the talkSPORT studio.
The Arsenal legend had been involved in a heated debate with Simon Jordan and Jim White live on air.

Keown was left furious as they discussed Mikel Arteta’s FA charge.
The Arsenal boss has been charged for his post-match rant following his side’s defeat at Newcastle earlier this month.
Anthony Gordon’s controversial winner was only awarded after a lengthy VAR check, with the audio from the review released this week.
Touching on Joelinton’s potential foul on Gabriel, Keown explained: “In this instance, a former participant should (know). I thought Jamie Carragher was brilliant on this.
“The other night he saw a similar incident where Cucurella was fouled. He was actually dragged by Haaland on the wrong side of play.”
This prompted Jordan to ask how come Gary Neville did not think it was a foul if former players agreed with Keown.
White also joined in, arguing: “It’s who you want to believe, isn’t it Martin? If this wasn’t Arsenal you wouldn’t be saying this.”

Meanwhile, former Crystal Palace chairman Jordan continued to question Keown’s point about ex-pros.
An angry Keown then exclaimed: “Do you want me to do what Martin O’Neill said? ‘I’m going to leave the studio’. Do you want me to do that?”
He was visibly fuming at the debate as Jordan joked: “I’m happy for you to.”
Keown made over 400 appearances for the Gunners and won three league titles amongst 11 major trophies.
However, his former club’s current manager faces a potential touchline ban from the FA.
Arteta has been charged for his furious outburst at the officials following the loss at Newcastle on November 4.
