Celtic fans react on Twitter as Rangers slump to Ibrox defeat
Celtic fans have reacted in their hoards on social media to Rangers’ 3-1 defeat by St Johnstone at Ibrox on Saturday.
The Gers missed the chance to close the gap on the Scottish Premiership league leaders and remain five points behind Celtic who have two games in hand, and are now three points behind second placed Aberdeen who defeated Hibs 4-1.
Unsurprisingly the result at Ibrox gave great delight to the fans of the Bhoys, who took to social media to poke fun at their oldest rivals after their latest defeat at home with some also praising St Johnstone goalscorer Denny Johnstone, a one-time Hoops youth player who put the Saints 2-1 ahead.
Here are a few reactions on Twitter from Bhoys fans:

Boos at Ibrox from the small number of Rangers fans who stayed until the final whistle sounded on the humiliating 3-1 defeat to St Johnstone.Saints boss Tommy Wright gave Murty a lesson on tactics and man-management, despite going behind inside 5 minutes.Rangers were rank rotten.
