A clip of a cheeky Rangers fan toasting manager Steven Gerrard during his wedding speech has gone viral on Twitter.
The Gers supporter was addressing the crowd and had the room split in half by the end with a hilarious surprise toast to the Ibrox gaffer as he goaded his Celtic rivals – disclaimer: there’s a bit of bad language in the clip.

Speaking to the crowd, the fan discusses how difficult the last ten years have been in what seems a subtle nod to his bride and the challenges of a relationship.
The groom then goes on to discuss the many low points that he’s experienced over the years and his time soul searching whilst he asked why can’t we “get this right?”
His mum then gives him the advice that “when you really love something, you need to stick with it”.
Then as the speech reaches a crescendo it becomes apparent that the groom isn’t speaking about his time with the bride as he claims the last couple of years “couldn’t have went any better”.
The groom then asks the room to raise their glasses and hilariously toasts Steven Gerrard “for stopping 10IAR”.
The toast is met with wild cheers from some parts of the room whilst – as the camera pans round – you see that some others weren’t quite so impressed.
It’s all in good fun and the groom himself – who goes by the name Noods85 on Twitter – has even taken to Twitter to recognise the reaction to the speech and claims he’s “buzzing”.

It’s just goes to show how much of an impact Steven Gerrard and this Rangers team had on people last year and the wedding speech is one which will last long in the memory.
Congratulations to the bride and groom and let’s hope they’re celebrating even more silverware on their first anniversary.
Meanwhile, an established football magazine has been expressing fears regarding complaints from Celtic fans after an article made a serious claim about Rangers.
