Celtic fans might have a new hero in Mohamed Elyounoussi, but some Rangers fans are cringing at the song which has been attached to the winger.
Bluenoses have been singing Scotty Arfield’s name to Saturday Night by Whigfield since last season and some are taking Celtic’s efforts to do the same with Mohamed Elyounoussi as daylight robbery.
When Celtic’s official Twitter account tweeted the lyrics to the song, these Bears couldn’t resist hijacking the thread.
That's a rangers tune 😂😂😂

The chant, which is also sung to the name of Divock Origi by Liverpool fans, is proving a popular one to put player’s names to, but is it really ok to “bump” your rival’s songs?
It’s not the first time uninventive Celtic fans have tried to steal a bit of patter from Rangers fans this season.
Following the Ibrox side’s trip to face FC Midtjylland, Rangers fan adopted PCDJ anthem Welcome to the Party.
Ever since the tune’s become synonymous with the Ibrox side but some Celtic fans were filmed singing it against Rennes, and even boasting about it afterwards.
Whilst Rangers fans may not be able to lay claim to adopting Saturday Night on the football terraces, adopting a chant from an unrelated football team is somewhat different from doing it from your rivals.
Even if it is incredibly catchy.
