Manchester City celebrated their Premier League win; goalkeeper escorted out by security at 4am during team's late-night celebrations.

A night that was supposed to be filled with jubilant celebrations for Manchester City's triumphant retention of the Premier League title took an unexpected turn when goalkeeper Scott Carson was removed by security from a local venue at the early hour of 4am. 

The seasoned goalkeeper, who has become a respected figure in the dressing room despite limited appearances, reportedly became embroiled in a disagreement that escalated, leading to his ejection.

Manchester City had clinched their fourth consecutive Premier League title on Sunday, following a decisive 3-1 victory over West Ham. 

The celebrations kicked off on the Etihad pitch, with players, staff, and their partners reveling in the glory of a historic achievement. 

The jubilation then continued into Manchester’s nightlife with the team heading to the Greek restaurant Fenix, where the festivities were slated to continue until the early morning.

According to DailyMail, the night took a sour turn when Carson, who has been with City as a third-choice keeper for the past five seasons, was seen being led out of the venue by security. 

 "Carson was seen being removed from a venue by security after he tried to fight with a fellow reveller" it reads.

Despite the hiccup, the celebration was a reflection of the strong camaraderie and high spirits within the squad. 

Pep Guardiola, having steered his team to a sixth Premier League title in seven seasons, was seen enjoying the festivities alongside players like Phil Foden, whose girlfriend, Rebecca Cooke, was also in attendance.

Erling Haaland’s partner Isabel Haugseng took part enthusiastically in the dancing showcasing the inclusive and familial atmosphere that has become a hallmark of Guardiola’s City.

In the midst of the revelry, Jack Grealish was noted for both his expensive taste, donning a £2,000 (Ksh 344,000) Gucci outfit, and his vocal chops, as he belted out Natasha Bedingfield’s "Unwritten" with friends. 

Scott Carson, while not a regular on the pitch, has been hailed by Guardiola as an “incredible person” and a “real leader” within the team. 

In the aftermath of the celebrations, the City squad, including Carson, emerged from Fenix around 5am with players like Rodri and Kevin De Bruyne appearing particularly weary from the night’s exertions.
