Rangers fans were delighted last night when the Gers ‘ensured we will all have a merry Xmas’ but the festive season got even more enjoyable for some Gers fans when it emerged Celtic TV’s Gerry McCulloch had bizarrely called the league table “fake news.”

After seeing them scrape past Ross County at home, the former STV and Radio Clyde presenter done his best ‘Comical Ali‘ impression and insisted that there is no sixteen-point gap at the top of the table.

While Celtic do have three games in hand, there’s no guarantee they’ll win them and the table, unsurprisingly only shows the results as they are – not what Celtic TV’s chief cheerleader wants it to read.

Given their misplaced claims of ‘world records’ after securing a quadruple treble – Celtic weren’t even the first team in Glasgo to achieve the feat – you’d think they’d be a bit more cautious of crowing about ‘fake news.’

Then again after being crowned Zoom Champions last season and insisting it was their best title yet, they might just be taking a leaf from soon-t0-be-former President Trump’s playbook.

Rangers fans on Twitter, unsurprisingly, found McCulloch’s claim utterly ridiculous – with one calling it a “fantastic way to start Christmas Eve.”

Here are some of the comments from Rangers fans on Twitter:
