'Claiming a world record' - Celtic fans react to what Rangers fans have planned for Sunday

Celtic fans on social media have reacted with hilarity to reports of a protest by Rangers fan group the Union Bears during Sunday’s match at Ibrox against Hearts.

The group are planning a silent protest during the game in protest at the ‘mismanagement’ going on at Ibrox.

A Union Bears statement was quoted by the Scottish Sun as saying: “We will be attending this weekend’s match against Hearts, however we will not have a vocal presence.”

The Gers have been rocked with a double whammy in recent days, as the 4-0 Scottish Cup semi-final defeat to Celtic was followed by the suspension of Kenny Miller and Lee Wallace for a dressing room bust-up with Graeme Murty.

The defeat to the Bhoys was so emphatic that it has lead to fan protests as the Gers go another season without winning a major domestic honour.

Unsurprisingly Hoops fans have been revelling in the problems that their bitter rivals are facing at the moment, with one fan claiming that the protest started during the Scottish Cup loss at Hampden.

Here are some of the best reactions from Twitter from Hoops fans to news of the fan protest:

With the teams set to face each other again in the last Old Firm game of the season on the 29th of April, in a match which could see the Hoops become champions, there’s no doubt the ‘banter’ between the clubs’ supporters will continue then.
