Celtic were humiliated by Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Wednesday night – and Rangers fans on Twitter were absolutely loving it.
The Hoops took the lead in Paris with only their second touch of the ball through Moussa Dembele before PSG scored four goals in 35 minutes to smash the Scottish champions before half-time.
The French giants followed that up with three second-half goals to round off an emphatic 7-1 win over Celtic as they set a new record for goals scored in a single Champions League group stage campaign.
Rangers fans were loving seeing their bitter Old Firm rivals being destroyed by PSG and took to social media to gloat – with one joking Celtic scored a consolation goal in the first minute.
Here are some of their comments on Twitter:

The kind of result that might give Rodgers food for thought. Reputation damaging for his chances of a top level job in future. Harsh given disparity in finances but this is the way of it in football.
