So here's to you, Aron Gunnarsson

After eight seasons, 286 appearances and 25 goals for the club, Gunnarsson said an emotional farewell to the club he joined from Coventry City back in 2011.

The Iceland international is one of only two players - Rhys Healey being the other - to represent Cardiff in both of their Premier League campaigns.

And the central midfielder's contributions to the club have been quite simply unquantifiable.

Gunnarsson led by example in what was his final outing for the Bluebirds at Old Trafford. And it was somewhat disappointing to see him depart the field before the hour mark, although there were inevitably reasons for Warnock making that particular call.

Nevertheless, he was widely embraced by several team mates as he departed.

But the reception he received from the 3,059 fans in the away end after the full-time whistle was a sight to behold.

His name was belted out with tremendous force, and the spectacle of the Icelandic clap that followed was akin to the memorable scenes of Euro 2016 when the Nordic islanders stunned England in the last-16 in France.

His efforts will always be appreciated by the Cardiff faithful. He's been a monumental figure for the Bluebirds over a number of years.

And the celebrations of those who made the trip from South Wales to the North West of England were a fitting indicator of Gunnarsson's phenomenal contributions to Cardiff City Football Club.
