Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku has chosen Celtic over Rangers in a Twitter Q+A session.
Plenty of players have been more active on social media in recent weeks with the suspension of football in most countries coupled with lockdown measures leaving them at a loose end.
One fan asked him for his preference when it comes to football in Glasgow.
The reply was short, but sweet enough, with the forward stating: “Celtic.”

It’s not much of a surprise considering his cousin is none other than Celtic left-back Boli Bolingoli but it hasn’t stopped the tweet garnering tens of thousands of interactions.
Lukaku moved to Inter Milan last summer for a reported fee of £74m (BBC) so it’s not as if he’s going to be joining his family member at Celtic Park anytime soon.
However, it is nice to see one of the bigger names in European football make known that Glasgow is most certainly green and white.
After another season of success, we’re the only show in town when it comes to an outsider’s view of Scottish football!
Supporters have piled on to the Inter man’s tweet, with some even cheekily suggesting he’ll be here for our ten-in-a-row bid.
With Odsonne Edouard in such good form over the last 12 months, there’s an argument we don’t even need him, despite his status!
These fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts…
Lukaku knows the score 😍🏴🇮🇪 https://t.co/0gOo2XzKg1
