Celtic fans have been goading Rangers star James Tavernier over the last 24 hours.

As Celtic overcame Aberdeen yesterday, they secured their eighth Premiership title in-a-row. With just two away from the 10, it’s a massively exciting time to be a Celtic supporter.

But fans have also used the title win to big up a Tavernier tweet from three years ago. The Rangers captain had a go at Hibernian in the tweet for not giving Rangers a guard of honour. He gave Alloa praise for doing so at Ibrox in their second game after winning the Scottish Championship.

But these things have a habit of coming back to bite you. Celtic’s title win means that their first game as Champions will come at Ibrox. You know where this is going, and Hoops fans have been taking the opportunity to let “Tav” know what’s expected next week.


Forget it, but a good performance will do nicely

A guard of honour just won’t happen. Rangers fans simply wouldn’t accept it happening, and at the moment they’re a club in desperation. With season-ticket renewals up for sale, Rangers would never take the risk.

But so long as the Hoops put in a strong performance at the home of their rivals, who cares?

Celtic owe the supporters for the last time they went to Govan. The absolutely pathetic display under Brendan Rodgers last December is still fresh in supporters’ minds. It was a sickening performance, as Celtic created next to nothing on the day and surrendered with far too much ease.

The Hoops have since made up for it with their domestic form since the winter break. Celtic have stormed to the title this season, and haven’t lost a single Premiership match since returning from the break.

And next weekend’s clash at Ibrox would help put the finishing touches on a strong second-half of the season should we pick up the points.

Just don’t expect any form of classy guard of honour!
