'Thanks for the motivation', 'Joke'- Celtic fans react on Twitter to Barry Ferguson claims

Celtic fans on social media have laughed off claims made by former Rangers captain Barry Ferguson that the Hoops were ‘lucky’ to win last month’s Old Firm encounter at Ibrox.

The Hoops played with 10 men for forty minutes after the sending-off of Jozo Simunovic, but still managed to win 3-2, despite this Ferguson claimed in his Daily Record column that the Bhoys were fortunate to get the three points.

Unsurprisingly this hasn’t gone down well with Hoops fans, with one claiming that Ferguson’s comments will give the team plenty of motivation for Sunday’s Old Firm Scottish Cup semi-final.

Here are some of the best reactions from Twitter to Ferguson’s comments:

The Hoops go into the upcoming semi-final unbeaten in Old Firm games this season, with two wins at Ibrox and a draw at Parkhead.

The teams are set to meet again for the final time this season in two weeks time at Celtic Park, a match which could see the Hoops crowned champions depending on results in the league games before that.

The Old Firm have met at the semi-final stage of the Scottish Cup in the last two years, with the Gers winning on penalties after a 2-2 draw in 2016, and the Hoops easing to a 2-0 win last season.
