Partick Thistle’s relegation from the Scottish Premiership was confirmed on Sunday when the Jags lost 1-0 to Livingston to record a 3-1 aggregate loss – and Rangers fans were loving seeing their Glasgow rivals drop into the Scottish Championship.
The result means there will only be two Glasgow sides in the Scottish Premiership next season – although does mean the Gers will face at least one trip to the fantastically-named Tony Macaroni Arena.
Gers fans found Thistle’s demise hilarious as they dropped into the second-tier, just a year after recording their best league finish in a generation when they finished sixth, with one asking Thistle fans to “tell Dundee United we said hello.”
Here are some of their comments on Twitter:

Livingston featured on-loan Rangers starlet Jordan Thompson while Ryan Hardie was forced to sit the game out through injury as their loan spell ended in the best possible fashion.
The Lions were only promoted from League One 12 months ago – with Gers goalkeeper Liam Kelly as their number one that season – and securing back-to-back promotions is a fantastic achievement by the West Lothian side.
The Gers last faced Livi in 2016 when Mark Warburton’s side were in the Championship with the Gers winning three of the four meetings between the sides in the league.
In other Rangers transfer news, the club are in hot pursuit of a 6’4″ colossus who could be signing of the season.
