GERWYN Price lashed out that the “game is gone” after a controversial Premier League night.
The ex-World Champ took to Instagram after crashing out of night seven in Rotterdam to fellow Welshman Jonny Clayton.
Price, 36, who recently lost his world No.1 ranking to Peter Wright, lost 6-5 in his quarter-final meeting with an average of 94.91 – before taking to social media.
He stated: “The best player doesn’t win anymore. The game is gone. Well done.”
Following that post, multiple major winner went into further detail about his feelings – insisting that it wasn’t in relation to the night of Premier League action.
He added: “I wasn’t talking about my game or about last night in particular, the best player on the day doesn’t always win because the game is spoiled, dictated and influence by non darts fans.
“But what I say will always be twisted. Makes me smile though.”
With Clayton then losing to Michael van Gerwen in the semi-finals, Joe Cullen would go on to win his first night of the campaign having seen off James Wade and Peter Wright before MVG.
Price’s comments came after a controversial night in which objects were thrown at both Michael Smith and Cullen by the crowd, with Gary Anderson losing his cool on stage for an incident with the overall winner.
