GERWYN PRICE threatened to never play in the PDC Darts Championship again as he crashed out after wearing EAR DEFENDERS to block out booing fans.
The “gutted” World No1 seemed to blame the hostile Ally Pally crowd following his shock 5-1 mauling against German Gabriel Clemens in the quarter-finals.
The top seed returned from a break at 3-1 down to don headphones for one set as supporters continued to give him stick.
But the change did the Welshman little good – and afterwards he promptly posted on Instagram that he is considering QUITTING.
The Iceman, 37, wrote: “So frustrating, you play all year round preparing for this one tournament.
“So gutted I wasn’t let play but Good luck everyone left in. Not sure I will ever play in this event again.”
Price has regularly been targeted by fans since the controversial argy-bargy of his notorious win over Gary Anderson in the 2018 Grand Slam of Darts final.
He was later fined a then-world record fee of £21,500 – reduced to £11,500 on appeal.
But viewers were sceptical about Price’s suggestion he might not return to the Ally Pally.
One posted: “He can’t be serious, right? The crowd were fine until he put on those hilarious earmuffs.

“Fabricating a rivalry with the crowd to excuse his mid performance, not unusual.”
But some fans claimed he deserved the booing he receives because of his “arrogance”.
One said: “He rarely shows any respect to other players, a very bad loser and terrible sportsmanship in general.
“He tries a bit more now granted, but done the damage with fans early on in darts career.”
