Liam Burt was released by Celtic during his youth career and went on to join cross-city rivals Rangers, for whom he made his senior level debut. But he rejoined the Scottish Champions this summer and has now gone on to brutally troll his former club on Twitter.
Liam Burt was let go of by Celtic as a 15-year-old in 2014 and went on to represent Glasgow rivals, Rangers, at both youth and senior level. He made his professional debut for the Ibrox club at the age of 17 against Raith Rovers in a Scottish Championship game in March of 2016 and signed a contract extension with the club just a few days later.
But the midfielder was never able to break through into the first-team, making only 3 appearances for the club during his five seasons at Ibrox. After a couple of average loan spells away at Dumbarton and Alloa Athletic, he was released by Rangers earlier in the summer.
Celtic wasted no time in re-signing their former youth star. And the midfielder has also seemingly always had Celtic in his heart judging by his recent move on Twitter. A quick glance at Liam Burt’s Twitter profile and you’ll notice he has a familiar image as his Twitter header.
It is the image of former Hoops goalkeeper Artur Boruc from over 12 years ago. It shows Boruc carrying a “Champions” flag at Ibrox following a game between the Celtic and Rangers. The Teddy Bears had won that match 2-0 but Celtic had already been crowned Scottish Champions, and Boruc felt the need to remind the opposition fans about the fact when he ran the length of the Ibrox pitch with the flag in a now infamous incident.
It is clearly no co-incidence that Burt has that picture as his header on Twitter following the club’s 2-0 win away at Ibrox and will only endear him to Hoops fans. Having represented both Celtic and Rangers during his short career, there is no question where his loyalties lie.
