Rangers fans react on Twitter after Celtic suffer defeat v Kilmarnock
Celtic suffered their second defeat of the Scottish Premiership campaign on Saturday, losing 1-0 to Steve Clarke’s Kilmarnock – and Rangers fans on Twitter were absolutely loving it.
Youssouf Mulumbu’s second-half strike secured a surprise 1-0 win for the Rugby Park side as Brendan Rodgers’ side threw away what could prove to be a vital three points.
The result now gives Rangers a chance to close the gap at the top of the table to 8 points by Tuesday night as they face Hibernian and Partick Thistle in their two outstanding fixtures.
Gers fans were loving rubbing salt in the wounds of their rivals after only their second league defeat this season.
Here are some of their comments on Twitter:

The defeat is only the second in the Scottish Premiership for Brendan Rodgers since taking charge at Celtic Park in the summer of 2016 but could open up the title race after looking like a foregone conclusion.
Rodgers’ side were thumped 4-0 by Hearts last month to bring their long domestic unbeaten run to an end but a second defeat following so quickly after could have Rodgers questioning his side’s mentality.
The Gers are currently fourteen points behind their bitter rivals but will de desperate to get within touching distance of the champions as the Scottish Premiership gets towards the crucial point of the season.
