Rangers fans have been left in stitches after the club’s official Twitter account aimed a dig at rivals Celtic following their Champions League qualifying exit at the hands of FC Midtjylland.
The Hoops entered qualifying at the second round stage, one before the Gers, and were dealt a relatively kind draw against the Danes.
After all, while The Wolves did reach the Champions League group stages last season, they aren’t much improved from the side that Rangers hammered 7-3 on aggregate in Europa League qualifying in 2019.
However, despite Callum McGregor’s volley putting the visitors ahead in Denmark on Wednesday evening, Ange Postecoglou’s side crashed out, with Raphael Nwadike’s extra-time goal proving the fatal blow.
Celtic will now need to get through several rounds of qualifying if they are to reach the Europa League proper and Rangers fans were delighted by the development.
After the Hoops’ defeat some fans on Twitter called for trolling from the official Rangers account, asking the admin to choose one of the Light Blues’ seven strikes against Midtjylland from 2019 as Thursday’s ‘Goal of the Day’.
Hey @RangersFC, can tomorrow's "Goal of the day" be ANY of the SEVEN we put by FC Midtjylland … no particular reason why, just like to think back.
