It was an extremely convincing display Steven Gerrard’s men, with the Hoops failing to register a shot on target across the 90 minutes.

After the game, Sheffield United striker Oli McBurnie took to social media to praise the performance before another England-based bluenose weighed in with his own message.

‘Glasgow is blue, Glasgow was blue, Glasgow will always be blue,” wrote Charlie Gilmour on Twitter, before attaching a gif of Gerrard.

21-year-old Gilmour spent over a decade at Arsenal, where his impressive Premier League 2 performances earned him a senior debut in the Europa League in 2018.

However, six months later, he was released by the Gunners and joined then top-flight side, Norwich City.

He’s yet to make a league appearance for the Canaries and spent last season on loan at Telster in the Dutch second-tier, turning out 24 times and notching three assists.

The former Scotland U19 international hasn’t received any playing time since returning to Carrow Road and wasn’t involved in their 2-1 win at Rotherham on Saturday, but it looks as though he was content to tune into the Old Firm before revelling in the result.
