Celtic fans react on Twitter to Rangers dressing room celebrations
Celtic fans on Twitter have been reacting with hilarity to Rangers boss Graeme Murty’s revelation that his players cheered the Scottish Cup semi-final draw.
The Englishman revealed the celebrations, as quoted in the Daily Record, after the draw pitted the Old Firm together at the semi-final stage of the tournament for the third year in a row.
Hoops fans weren’t very impressed with Murty’s announcement, with one claiming that the players were celebrating as they will be getting “an extra week off”.
Here are some of the best reactions from Twitter to Murty’s claim:

Murty’s comments will add even more excitement as Old Firm get ready to face off at Ibrox on Sunday.
The game is a potential league decider, as the Hoops go into the match with a six points lead and a game in hand, knowing that a victory would all but clinch a seventh league title in a row.

Meanwhile, a win for Murty’s side in the match would cut the gap to only three points and put the pressure on Brendan Rodgers’ side as the league enters it’s closing stages.
With the Bhoys also trying to win a second successive domestic treble there is bound to be plenty of tension and drama in the three Old Firm matches left to play this season.
