Former Celtic hero Alan Thompson is the latest name to bite to the baited hook of Rangers fans as the Ibrox club stretch their lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership to 11 points.
The prospect of Celtic achieving their holy grail of 10IAR – despite dubious claims to it – is slipping away from them with a rampant Rangers showing no signs of slowing this season.
There’s still a long way to go – but going by the sort of comments being made by Thompson et al there is a smell of fear emanating from the eastend of Glasgow.
I see they’re all out tonight in full bloom!! Amazing after nine seasons of silence!! Goodnight 👍

Former Parkhead winger Thompson took to Twitter to say:
“I see they’re all out tonight in full bloom!! Amazing after nine seasons of silence!! Goodnight”.
After years of dominance Celtic fans are flaking left, right and centre due to a spell of bad form, a brass neck when you consider the loyalty shown by Rangers fans over the last decade.
Thompson’s comments didn’t go unnoticed by the Ibrox faithful with Rangers fans responding on Twitter after the club’s 4-0 demolition of Aberdeen rubbed salt in Celtic wounds.
Aye first time we’ve come out in 9 years but we’ve been living rent free in your heads all that time, first bit of competition and you’re all in meltdown throwing Lennon under the bus 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 HWG10IAR 🇨🇮☘️

No gloating from this Rangers fan. Solid first 15 games, 23 to go. I don't forget what can happen to decide titles like missed penalties at Rugby Park on the final day of the season.

We supported our team in lower leagues where your lot conspired to put us. Not deserting team & turning on manager after few poor results. You won 5 without us in league & were given 1 when were in it. In reality you won 3 when we were in league. 55 is coming @RangersFC

Alan Thompson isn’t the only Celtic hero whose comments are catching the eye of Rangers fans either.
A current Celtic star – who actually liked Thompson’s tweet – has been goaded by the Rangers support for his latest blunder in a Parkhead career becoming defined by them.
