Celtic fans troll Rangers on Twitter following Tavernier message

By Matt Farr

Celtic fans on Twitter have trolled Rangers ahead of their Old Firm derby meeting at Ibrox on Saturday.

The fierce Scottish rivals are set to go head to head for a sixth time in all competitions this season, with Celtic looking to extend their undisputed dominance over Rangers.

To add further fuel to the fire ahead of the blockbuster tie, Celtic fans have unearthed a Twitter message from Rangers defender James Tavernier from the end of last season in an attempt to troll their rivals.

Tavernier had taken to his personal Twitter account following the 1-1 draw with Alloa Athletic on April 23 to thank his opponents for their guard of honour, with Rangers crowned winners of the Scottish Championship.

The 25-year-old was aiming a subtle dig at Hibernian for not giving Rangers a guard of honour following their title triumph, and Celtic fans have unearthed the Tweet to request a guard of honour of their own on Saturday.

Celtic have won four of their five meetings with Rangers this season, including a comfortable 2-0 win at Hampden in the Scottish Cup semi final on Sunday.

The only solace for Rangers has been a 1-1 draw with Celtic in their last meeting in the Scottish Premiership in March, with the club currently positioned an incredible 33 points adrift in the league table.
