Celtic fans banner banter aimed at Rangers in 2012 might be turning into reality

The rivalry between Celtic and Rangers is many years old, 129 to be precise. The very first meeting between the two sides took place when Celtic were born and had invited Rangers to inaugurate their new ground.

From 1888 to 2017, a lot seems to have changed since that day. The fateful year of 2012 saw Rangers facing bankruptcy, for which their rivals still mock them by calling them a new club that lost its history with its previous owners.

It was on 29th April in that ominous year when in a game between the two Old Firm rivals the Hoops faithful had celebrated their 3-0 win by flashing massive banners jeering at Rangers’ predicament, the most notable of which had read: “Your grandchildren will be Celtic fans!”

And if you ask @paddyonthewing, this is already happening. The Celtic supporter’s tweet (seen below) narrates a heart-broken Rangers fan’s story that recites how his three young nephews have snubbed their traditional club and have now turned into massive Celtic fans!

  1. They weren’t just “facing bankruptcy”, Dhruv, they actually went bust. That’s why we (and others) call them a new club. Because that’s what they are.

    The End 🙂
