After a shock result in Europe last night, vocal Rangers fan Oli McBurnie, couldn’t resist the opportunity to poke fun on Twitter.
The rangy striker recently secured a £20 million transfer from Swansea to Premier League new boys Sheffield United [Daily Record].
Remarkably, it means that aged just 23, he’s the most expensive Scottish footballer of all time.
He may be well out of Rangers’ price range right now, but he regularly shows his allegiance to the club over social media. Last night, that took the form of a dig at Celtic after their horror night at Parkhead.
Taking a 1-1 draw from their away leg of their Third Round Champions League Qualifier against CFR Cluj, things seemed to be well under control.
Yet, things unravelled on a famous night for the visitors in Glasgow.
The Romanian champions, ranked at 288th on the UEFA Club Coefficient, netted four away goals to march on to the playoff round.
It means that despite a strong start to the domestic season, the Hoops will fail to make it through to the Champions League group stages.
Predictably, social media exploded after the result and McBurnie couldn’t resist wading in with some content of his own.

His tweet was lapped up by Rangers fans, as it gained almost ten thousand likes overnight. Needless to say, it wasn’t quite so well received on the other side of the city.

The shock result was naturally enjoyed by all Bears, but it should serve as a warning to the Rangers players ahead of their own European tie.
They lead FC Midtjylland 4-2 heading into the return leg at Ibrox, but must now be aware more than ever, that if complacency creeps in, it can have disastrous consequences.
