Rangers fans salute old boys for standing up to Celtic fan pub attack

Rangers fans are saluting a group of older patrons who defended a city-centre pub following a violent attack from a balaclava-wearing Celtic fan group.

City centre Rangers pub Oswald’s appeared to be targeted by a group of Celtic fans on the day their side was playing St Johnstone in the Premier Sports Cup at Hampden.

The Parkhead side would win the clash 1-0 setting up a final with whoever manages to win between Rangers and Hibernian but there is little doubt this pocket of supporters spoiled the day.


In utterly disgraceful scenes, groups of grown men can be seen aggressively assaulting patrons of the bar in similar scenes to the Rangers-linked Toby Jug being attacked in 2019.

Watch the clip HERE but be warned it does include violent scenes and a bunch of grown men running away with their tails between their legs.

According to the Daily Record – who were unusually forced to name and shame this bunch as Celtic fans due to a “Bhoys” label on one of their jerseys – the attack took place just before 3pm on Saturday 20th November.

The incident has been reported to police and we don’t want to focus too much on this bunch of big, strong, hard men attacking innocent people enjoying a nice Saturday pint but rather those who stood up to them.

The Celtic ultras – adorned in their usual regalia – began chucking chairs at those at the bar in a disgraceful display of violence more akin to the Glasgow of 40 years ago.

As innocent bystanders took cover, a group of older gentlemen stood up to this bunch of neds and sent them off running like the cowards their balaclavas suggest they are.

Rangers fans – suitably aggrieved that a pub anyone of them could’ve been drinking in was attacked – have saluted the old guard who defended the boozer:



Well done to the old boys who stood up to this and seriously, how utterly depressing that these scenes have taken place in Glasgow this weekend.

Let’s hope the police do their job and round the attackers up but for the mean time we bet that those old guys involved won’t need to buy themselves a pint for the next wee while!

Meanwhile, Rangers fans are buzzing at a clip of new manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst sharing a warm embrace with a legendary Ibrox staffer.
