Rival fans are in meltdown about Celtic winner despite clearly being onside

As it turns out, it’s not only the Hearts manager and Kris Boyd that are in total meltdown mode after last night, you can throw the Rangers fans into that category as well.

Kyogo Furuhashi’s winning goal has them absolutely seething. It’s not as if Rangers have won games due to offside goals of course. Every goal they net is legitimate you see.

Regardless, Kyogo’s winner is up for debate at best. Images show that he’s clearly in line with the ball when it’s played across to him. Why there’s such a major thing being made of it is anyone’s guess.

People are also quick to forget, aren’t they? What about the Leil Abada goal at Tynecastle that was disgracefully ruled out? What about the free-kick that led to their winner that should never have been given? It’s funny to see just how passionate Neilson in particular got last night when he was so quiet about decisions in that Premiership opener.

Even funnier is the Rangers supporters who are acting as though the referees are against them. Do me a favour. They needed a late penalty to beat Hibs on Wednesday night and got it, that’s hardly a sign of anti-Rangers refereeing is it?

Rangers fans fear Celtic and it’s absolutely glorious to see

Of course, we all know why the Rangers fans are getting so uptight about it. If Celtic were 10 points behind them in the title race then none of this would be getting brought up.

The fact is that there’s a fear that’s stemming from the Ibrox hordes. They’re wary of what Ange Postecoglou is building in Glasgow’s East End. Not even the most fearful of Rangers supporters would’ve envisaged this superb level of progress seen over the last couple of months.

Yes, we’re 4 points behind in the title race. No that isn’t ideal. But think of the radical overhaul that we’ve had to undergo over the summer. Look at where we were just 6 months ago and how far off of our rivals we looked.

Now, they’re fixated on watching Celtic games and obsessing over close decisions. They know what’s happening at Parkhead is ominous for them. Their time as the top team in Scotland is in real danger of being short-lived.

And below, we take a look at some of the comical reaction from the Rangers fans to last night’s decision:
