Jozo Simunovic has taken to Twitter to deliver a passionate message to Celtic fans after their 5-1 thrashing of Rangers at Ibrox on Saturday.
The 22-year-old was arguably involved in one of the moments of the match when he made a brilliantly-timed aggressive challenge on Gers striker Kenny Miller.
Unfortunately, Simunovic wasn’t able to keep a clean sheet against the Light Blues as Miller found the net in the closing stages of the Old Firm clash.
However that didn’t stop the centre-back from taking to his personal Twitter account on Sunday to said: “Always together. Faith and passion.”

The Croat has made 29 appearances for Celtic across all competitions, scoring once in the 2-1 win over Dundee in March.
Injuries have proved to be a big problem in Simunovic’s time in Scotland though as he began the season on the sidelines with damage to a knee ligament.
He almost secured a move to Serie A club Torino in the summer transfer window, but performances this season have proved that Brendan Rodgers was lucky to keep hold of him.
Celtic have won five of the six Old Firm derbies in Rangers’ return to Scotland’s top-flight.
Rodgers’ men have five more games to avoid defeat if they wish to end the domestic campaign unbeaten and with a treble of silverware.
