Jim White has posted a Twitter message stating that there are “plenty of reasons” for Rangers to be cheerful after their Old Firm defeat – and Celtic fans have mocked the presenter.
The Sky Sports News presenter accompanied the message with a picture where he is standing alongside Kenny Miller and Lee Wallace.
The Gers duo were at the Player of the Year awards bash after the game, with Miller scooping the goal of the season prize for his wonderful strike against Aberdeen in April.
Celtic fans couldn’t help but poke fun at White for his comments after Rangers had produced a woeful display against their rivals in the Scottish Cup semi-final.
Supporters were reminding their neighbours of the scoreline from earlier on in the day and their current league position.
Brendan Rodgers team secured the Scottish Premiership title against Hearts earlier this month as they are currently 33 points ahead of third-placed Rangers in the table.
Furthermore, on their way to lifting the Scottish League Cup in November, the Bhoys beat the Gers during the semi-finals stages of that competition.
As a result, Celtic now have the chance to secure a domestic treble, with Aberdeen awaiting them in the final.
But before that game, they will play Rangers for the sixth time this season when the two teams will beat at Ibrox for a Scottish Premiership clash next Saturday.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Was that the 'Point of the Year Awards Jim? Was it the opening day point at home to Hamilton or the legendary one from Celtic Park?
