The rivalry between Rangers and Celtic runs deeper than most.

The Old Firm is one of the fiercest derbies on the planet and strikes a dividing line through the city of Glasgow.

But there was one little detail in the game that has pissed off a lot of Gers fans and amused Celtic supporters in equal measure.

It might seem like a tiny inconsequential detail to anyone uninitiated with this age-old football rivalry, but up Glasgow way they don't take these things too lightly.

So when a photo emerged of the Rangers team doing the iconic Hoops huddle, the reaction was quite obvious.


Rangers fans were not impressed in the slightest...
