Rangers fans have gotten used to goading their Celtic rivals in recent seasons with the infamous Disco Lights sure to raise a chuckle or two from Ibrox supporters.

However, since the club installed the new lights in 2018 they have yet to see a Champions League match, something which has naturally been found particularly humorous by Rangers fans.

The name Disco Lights also comes from ex-Celtic forward Chris Sutton lambasting the investment in the lighting rig whilst failing to qualify for the Champions League.

The outspoken pundit used the term in August 2018 following the Parkhead club’s Champions League qualification exit to AEK Athens [Scotsman].

Since then, Rangers fans have used the term to goad their rivals following every Champions League exit and remarkably, the Parkhead club themselves have used it in their communications.

Even more hilariously, these lights that were supposed to shine down on the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Leo Messi and Robert Lewandowski are now being plugged for matches with Ross County.

As the Parkhead Banter Years threaten to roll on, Rangers fans have been unable to resist taking aim at their rivals for the Tweet.

Gers fans took it for years from their rivals but it’s quite remarkable that Celtic’s official accounts would set them up so perfectly for retribution:



Rangers fans certainly don’t hesitate when it comes to goading Celtic and their fans but when they set it up like this, can you blame them?

It’s not the first time the Ibrox club’s fans have been buckled regarding Celtic today as the Parkhead side branded last year’s epic failure an “operational highlight”.
