Michael O’Halloran has apologised after being pictured sitting with Celtic fans during the Scottish Cup final on Saturday.
A picture surfaced online showing the Rangers player sat with Celtic fans and it had the Gers fans raging.
Celtic completed the double treble at Hampden on Saturday and the last thing Rangers fans would have expected to see is one of their players in among the Celtic celebrations.
The 27-year-old has made 16 Premiership appearances for St Johnstone this season, scoring five goals in his loan stint, and hasn’t been given a chance under Graeme Murty since he returned.
He was on the books at Parkhead as a kid and his dad is a Celtic youth coach.
His agent Kenny Moyes delivered a statement for O’Halloran and was quoted in the Daily Record as saying: “Michael didn’t realise he would be surrounded by Celtic fans but hindsight is a great thing and he now regrets the decision as he accepts it doesn’t look too good.
“I know he is taking some stick from the Rangers fans but he absolutely wasn’t at Hampden as a Celtic supporter. He’s a Rangers player.
“He is concerned at how it looks to the Rangers supporters but he thought he would be in a neutral section and didn’t realise until it was too late.”
