Rangers fans react on Twitter as Celtic draw v Kilmarnock
By James Black
Celtic dropped two points with a 1-1 draw against Kilmarnock at Parkhead on Saturday afternoon – and Rangers fans on Twitter saw the chance for some tongue-in-cheek optimism.
The Gers sit six points off their Glasgow rivals but that didn’t stop one fan from claiming “55 is still on” after Steve Clarke’s Kilmarnock grabbed a second draw in Glasgow in a matter of days.
Leigh Griffiths opened the scoring for the Hoops just before half-time after dominating the first 45 minutes.
However the Scottish champions’ lead didn’t last too long though with Jordan Jones equalising early in the second-half to earn Killie a point.
After sacking their own manager this week Rangers fans tried to put a brave face on their club’s situation.

Imagine getting the Kilmarnock job and realising you have to go away to Rangers then Celtic in 3 days, and coming away unbeaten. Fair play.

Decent result for Celtic holding on for a point against Kilmarnock ???? maybe the Rangers score during the week was actually a good result ????

Christ almighty. We sack Pedro and we're already back in third and only six points behind Celtic. Good decision.

Rangers also drew 1-1 with Kilmarnock on Wednesday night and – after Hoops fans were quick to gloat over that result – fans of the Gers haven’t been shy in getting their own back.
The result leaves Brendan Rodgers’ side one point ahead of Aberdeen at the top of the Scottish Premiership and equalled a 100-year-old record by extending their unbeaten domestic run to 62-games.
The Hoops face Bayern Munich at Celtic Park on Tuesday night in the Champions League and Rodgers will be hoping for a better performance against the German champions.
