Rival fans show their hypocrisy as Celtic star leaves them in a laughable rage

There was an incident on Sunday that’s been highlighted by Rangers fans and it involved Celtic striker Kyogo Furuhashi.

Kyogo collided with a Dundee defender in the box and then bizarrely went to ground without much of an impact. We won’t pretend it was anything else but likely trying to buy something off the referee. It wasn’t great and, yes, it could be summed up as a dive.

However, it was a nothing incident in what was a massively comfortable win for Celtic. And as Kyogo continues to grab the headlines for all of the right reasons with another brace, the Rangers fans are clearly getting wound-up by his form:

Incredibly, they’re the ones who are highlighting the dive and trying to make a song and dance about it. The same fanbase that lauds Alfredo Morelos as some kind of victimised hero fighting against the odds.

Rangers fans have watched the Colombian dive and elbow his way to success in Scottish football. Yet they’ve been happy to turn a blind eye to all of it as they refuse to acknowledge how much of a cheat he’s become.

Do they not remember Morelos getting sent off for diving at Celtic Park back in 2019 for example? When it comes to playing for free-kicks and penalties, it seems as if they’re all for it when it’s on their side.

Kyogo is on fire at Celtic and the Rangers fans can’t stand it

The truth is Kyogo has been the in-form striker in Scotland and our rivals don’t like it. Not when they’ve bigged up the likes of Morelos and Kemar Roofe to be the next big things.

Celtic’s Japanese sensation is making the Ibrox duo look like bargain-basement quality. Something that’s no doubt embarrassing the Rangers supporters and their centre-forwards too.

Again, the Kyogo dive was exactly that, a dive. Hopefully it’s not something we continue to see constantly moving forward. He certainly hasn’t made it a habit during his time in Scottish football.

But that’s the difference between us and our rivals – we can admit when our player has tried to buy something. They can’t. They still see their own serial cheats as players who get kicked off the park. Players who simply don’t get the decisions they should.

It’s incredibly hypocritical of them to be in a state of rage when they consistently try to con referees and get decisions in their favour that should never be on what seems like a weekly basis.

But hey ho, can we honestly say we’re surprised?
