Celtic supporters are loving the work of the Ryanair social media team this afternoon for a series of tweets poking fun at Rangers’ defeat in the UEFA Europa League final.

Eintracht Frankfurt emerged from Wednesday’s battle as Europa League winners after a penalty shoot-out, leaving Rangers fans gutted and Celtic fans looking forward to a fine summer.

The Bhoys are Scottish double champions and after weeks of people trying to diminish that achievement based on the assumption Rangers would win the trophy, there’s no hiding place left for the loudmouths.

Irish airline Ryanair got in on the social media fun this afternoon, suggesting they would never charge a baggage fee for the Europa League trophy, instead charging for ‘Rangers tears’.

Thousands of Celtic supporters are already interacting with the post, despite it being published just an hour ago.

A series of replies from the official Ryanair account added to the hilarity, as they even suggested starting a GoFundMe page to help raise money for new Rangers signings.

The Ibrox club could miss out on Champions League cash next season after Celtic romped to a Scottish Premiership win and an automatic place in the group stages.

Rangers will have to progress through two qualifying rounds against tough opponents this summer if they want to make it into the groups.

If the Ibrox side does qualify, it will reduce the money due to Celtic by around £3m, as we explained in our breakdown of Champions League cash yesterday.

Regardless, Celtic can look forward to a guaranteed place at Europe’s top table next season and a fine few months of being Scotland’s undisputed top dogs.
