'Good grief' 'Matter of time' - Celtic fans left fuming over controversial Rangers choice

Celtic fans have worked themselves into a rage after two Rangers legends sides played a charity match on Saturday at Ibrox – and one of the teams wore an orange strip.

A host of Gers legends such as Ally McCoist, Barry Ferguson, Mark Walters, Lorenzo Amoruso and Andy Goram took to the field in front of 15,000 fans to raise money for the club’s charity foundation.

Despite this, the colour of the strips was the main talking point for Celtic fans – with some of them believing it was motivated by a sectarian bias in controversial claims.

Here are some of their comments on Twitter:

Despite their abhorrence to the colour orange being used, Celtic fans seem to have no issue with the Irish flag being flown over Celtic Park regularly despite it being green, white and orange to symbolically represent the Catholic and Protestant communities in Ireland – which bizarrely enough is the same reasoning Celtic fans use to oppose the Gers wearing orange.

The Gers have had a number or orange strips in their past and famously had an ‘Orange Day’ at the Scottish Cup final in 2000 to pay tribute to manager Dick Advocaat and the large Dutch contingent at the club at the time.

The strips used in the legends clash are expected to be auctioned off for charity, while Rangers fans may point out the fact the Gers’ goalkeeper has worn orange all season.

In other Rangers news, the club must blow Celtic out of the water to sign the next Moussa Dembele.
