Celtic dominated Rangers on the way to a 2-0 win at Ibrox in the first Old Firm Derby of the season. Celtic superfan, Sir Rod Stewart, is not one to let an opportunity slip by as he wasted no time in trolling Rangers on Twitter.
Most people will know Sir Rod Stewart as one of the best-selling artists of all-time as he managed to sell over 100 million records during the course of a legendary career that earned him a knighthood. But Celtic fans know him as one of their own who enjoys rubbing salt into the wounds of Rangers fans just as much as the next guy. Stewart has a season ticket at Parkhead and can be seen enjoying a game with his son multiple times every season.
Celtic put in a brilliant display at Ibrox that saw them come out of the Old Firm Derby with a 2-0 win though goals from Odsonne Edouard and Jonny Hayes. This is a very step for the Scottish champions in their quest to win a record equaling ninth Premiership title in a row as many pundits had Rangers down as the favourites this season.
The Hoops performance though would’ve changed a lot of their minds as Rangers did not look like they were on the same level as the Champions. Celtic now sit at the top of the Premiership table with 12 points from the first 4 games of the season. But even more importantly, this was their first win at Ibrox since Steven Gerrard took over the reigns of manager there. A clear sign of progress after they lost both away games there last season.
Taking to Twitter after the game, the legendary singer tweeted:
Killing two birds with one stone, Stewart claimed his team’s supremacy over Glasgow while also tagging Rangers’ official account on the tweet and leaving them to ponder over their defeat a little bit longer. But what else can you expect from a man who sings ‘Grace‘ at opportunity he gets?
