If you aren’t on Twitter, you really missed something quite special yesterday.
Rangers winning 55 really has sent Celtic fans into meltdown but now, to go one step further, the club appears to have totally broken – at least their social media admin anyway.
Their manager has been sacked, their chief executive is running away, more than half of their team can’t get out of Parkhead quick enough but it appears a simple line in Douglas Park’s response to the Scottish Government has been enough to send them over the edge.
When referring to “the other half of the Old Firm” the chairman has clearly triggered the “there is no Old Firm” brigade and with season ticket renewals on the horizon it looks as though they are doing their best to get fans back on side, fans that have spent the last few months trying to get season ticket refunds for this season!
Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, it transpired that Celtic – along with Rangers – renewed the trademark “Old Firm” just last week, looks like you very much are “half of something” and it is “your problem”!
Gers fans obviously had a ball, here are a few of the finest responses to the toys getting well and truly lobbed out of the pram:
Best thing about this is the “Twitter for iPhone” part.
Their tweets never have that. “Someone” is at breaking point and has said “geeze the password I’ve had it with them” https://t.co/97cf1KxpNT

This has to be a parody right? I know Dave King said they’d fold but I didn’t think they completely break down. Wow! https://t.co/o0RANCsYY5

I honestly don’t think we’re topping that Celtic tweet folks. The pain, the self-pity, the sheer undiluted huff…absolutely outstanding 😂

You were half of a title race, just the really heartbroken, lagging behind half. Like the arse end of a panto donkey. https://t.co/BVnfprYh5O

We broke their fans years ago but we’ve broken the whole club now. They’ve gone full Sevco, glorious! https://t.co/zLBM4JmnPJ

And well, it wouldn’t be Rangers Twitter without Jackie popping up now would it…?
