Rangers could only manage to secure a third-place finish in the Scottish Premiership after a 5-5 draw with Hibernian at Easter Road wasn’t enough to overtake Aberdeen, who beat Celtic 1-0 at Celtic Park – and Gers fans bizarrely think Celtic lay down because of their hatred of their bitter rivals.

The defeat at home to Aberdeen was the first time Brendan Rodgers has suffered a domestic defeat at home and Celtic’s first domestic home defeat since 2015.

Gers fans questioned the “sporting integrity” of the result – a decade after Celtic cited the same reason to oppose an extension to the league campaign to help the Gers prepare for a UEFA Cup final.

Here are some of their comments on Twitter:


Andy Considine scored the only goal of the game for Aberdeen in the surprise win over the champions.

Finishing third means the Gers will take part in next season’s Europa League under new manager Steven Gerrard and their campaign will get underway on July 12th.

After only managing a draw against Hibs at Easter Road, the Light Blues needed Aberdeen to lose at Celtic Park for them to overtake Derek McInnes’ side and snatch second.

Celtic have only managed to win two of their last five games as they have staggered over the finishing line.

In other Rangers news, the Gers are firmly in the running with Celtic to sign this £120,000-a-week Premier League player who wants to move on in the summer.
