Leigh Griffiths has angered Rangers fans after he nominated Pedro Caixinha as Celtic’s Player of the Year at their recent annual awards.
The former Rangers manager had a disastrous reign at Ibrox that ended with him getting sacked in October.
Graeme Murty took over as new manager but failed to bridge the gulf between the two sides and suffered a humiliating 4-0 loss in the recent Scottish Cup semi-final.
The two sides are due to play again at Celtic Park on Sunday in what could be the season’s title decider.
Celtic will win the Premiership if they beat Rangers and the already bad blood has been made worse after Griffith’s comments.
In a video shown at the awards he said: “My player of the year this year is Pedro Caixinha.”
Rangers fans haven’t taken to this too kindly and swarmed onto Twitter to react to the Celtic player.
Here are the best reactions from angry fans:
Leigh Griffiths classless but expected. Rangers you know what needs to be done.

The mutant scumbag has absolutely no class. And they bang on about humility. But hey, it’s all about the Rangers. Obsessed race of human 💩

I’m pretty sure if that had been a rangers player or member of the coaching staff we would be slated for it. Goes to show they have no class

He’s a simpleton who’s lucky he was good at football. Just ignore him. He is the daft kid up the back of the class looking for attention.
