Some Rangers fans think a leading Celtic star was snapped singing a Rangers anthem inside Ibrox as it played over the Tannoy before the club’s 2-0 Scottish Cup defeat to the Gers.
Rangers anthem Follow, Follow was blaring over the PA system as the teams warmed up for the match and some believe Ryan Christie – who’s been the subject of much criticism from Celtic fans this season – appeared to be mouthing the lyrics.
Highlight of the game was Ryan Christie singing follow follow before the game, he’s got the lot of yous on strings🤣🤣🤣🤣 pic.twitter.com/9N8FQeNPcf

You can make your own mind up on that one but the clip has gathered some attention online with over 1000 interactions and plenty of comments.
Celtic are certainly in the Ibrox side’s shadow now and they face an almighty task to turn things around with the Gers having both a playing and mental advantage over their rivals.
Ryan Christie, 26, was reportedly the subject of interest from Premier League club Burnley last summer [Daily Record] and is one of a number of stars who could move on in the next window.
But before anyone thinks the Scotland international midfielder is a closet bluenose the player himself described Celtic as his “dream club” when he joined them from Inverness Caledonian Thistle in 2015 [Press & Journal].
The midfielder is also the son of former Celtic youth player Charlie Christie and for all intents and purposes, he’s believed to be a Parkhead fan.
Not that any of this explains the clip – even if it’s difficult to confirm whether or not he is singing along to the catchy chant.
The Ibrox PA operator deserves massive credit and Christie isn’t the only one who was caught out by the Tannoy system at Ibrox over the weekend.
