Tam McManus has slammed a Celtic fan on Twitter for “harassing” Rangers midfielder Todd Cantwell.

Todd Cantwell was part of the Rangers team that lost to Celtic at Ibrox in the Scottish Premiership this past weekend.

Brendan Rodgers’s side beat Michael Beale’s team 1-0 in the Old Firm derby this past Sunday.

Japan international forward Kyogo Furuhashi scored the only goal of the match.

It came in first-half injury time.

As you would expect with matches between Rangers and Celtic, there was controversy.

Kemar Roofe had a goal ruled out for Rangers for Cyriel Dessers’s contentious foul on Gustaf Lagerbielke.

Cantwell, who joined Rangers in January 2023, started for the Gers.

The 25-year-old Englishman started on the left of a midfield-three for Rangers.

Cantwell did not have the best of times in the first half, but the former Norwich City midfielder did step up his game after the break.

The former England Under-21 international came in deep and tried to make things happen.

Against Celtic at the weekend, Cantwell took three shots, played two key passes, had a pass accuracy of 64.9&, took 81 touches, made two interceptions, and put in five crosses.

Tam McManus slams Celtic fan for taunting Rangers midfielder Todd Cantwell

It was a disappointing day at the office for Rangers, who are now four points behind leaders and defending champions Celtic in fourth place.

As you can see from the video below, a Celtic fan taunted Cantwell at an airport after the match.

And former Hibernian forward and PLZ Soccer pundit Tam McManus was not impressed.

Now, we know that Rangers and Celtic are massive rivals.

Some would say that the rivalry between Rangers and Celtic is the biggest and fiercest in the world.

However, there is no place for taunting players at airports or public places.

No place whatsoever.

And you do feel for Todd Cantwell.

Cantwell clearly cannot do anything while he is being taunted in public.

Can you imagine what would have happened if the 25-year-old midfielder had hit back at the Celtic fan?

We all love banter.

It is an essential part of football.

However, there is a time and place for it.
