A Celtic dah may well have taken over the club’s official Twitter account to take a dig at Rangers and the “Old Firm”, but apparently, he missed the trademark memo from the Parkhead director’s box only last week.
The Parkhead club used their official communication channels to dig those indulgent Gers celebrations in George Square and comments made by Ibrox chairman Douglas Park.
In a letter to under-fire first minister Nicola Sturgeon, Park decried “inaccurate” claims being made by Scottish politicians regarding Rangers’ attempts to prevent gatherings.
But in that letter Park would also describe Celtic as “the other side of the Old Firm” in comments which clearly irked the Celtic Twitter admin.
“We’re not half of anything *eye-rolling emoji*,” tweeted Celtic.
“Not our problem #OneClubSince1888.”
Obviously taking a dig at both the Rangers fan celebrations and the club’s financial collapse in 2012, the account went full Celtic dah, sevocing its way back into the hearts of their hurting supporters.
However, the biggest thing is trying to claim that they’re not one half of the Old Firm in classically bitter comments made by Celtic fans regarding what the weirdest amongst them call the “Glasgow Derby”.
But whilst the Celtic Twitter account might not think the Old Firm exists – the Celtic board and directorate certainly do.
Alongside Rangers, Celtic consistently renew the Old Firm trademark only such is the power of the term, its monetary value and its legacy.
This is bare fact – Celtic and Rangers own the rights to the term and have a registered trademark with the UK Government as a result. Read it HERE.
The “Old Firm” trademark was also renewed only last week (02/03/21).
For a club who clearly want to pander to fans with this tragic nonsense, they’re not certainly practising what they preach off the field – not that this will come as any surprise to Rangers supporters.
Are Celtic bitter, angry, salty and annoyed? Absolutely. Are they also one half of the Old Firm? Well, according to the club themselves, yes, yes they are.
Rangers fans couldn’t believe their luck when Celtic finally bit to Rangers’ celebrations and uploaded the salty tweet.
