Fans of Premier League West Ham United have been spotted visiting iconic Rangers pub the Bristol Bar ahead of their clash with Old Firm rivals Celtic.
The London club are set to face off against the Parkhead side this afternoon at 3pm with 18500 fans expected for the pre-season friendly.

Supporters of the Hammers are amongst the most loyal in football and a group of them are clearly in party mood as they descended on the pub in Glasgow’s east end.
Located in Dennistoun, the Gers boozer is not far from enemy territory in Celtic Park and we’re sure the West Ham supporters would’ve got a fine reception at the Bristol.
Rangers are popular amongst many supports south of the border and there’s plenty of fans of both clubs who have a shared respect.
Gers supporters will certainly be cheering on the Hammers as they take to the field against Celtic at Parkhead and we expect their fans might be making a return to Rangers pubs later today.
This isn’t the first time Rangers and West Ham have been mentioned alongside each other this week either.

However, Rangers stuck true to their word and sent the talented wide man to Championship Dunfermline on loan for the season.
This didn’t exactly go down too well with West Ham supporters, who were left frustrated after their club appeared to miss out on yet another transfer target.
