You've certainly got to respect the dedication

The Hoops fan revealed on Twitter that he had applied for a job as a kiosk assistant to gain access to the stadium. Then, once he had been given access to the ground, he ran away from his duties and hid in the toilets until Celtic's fans arrived.

He was then able to blend in with the visiting supporters and enjoy the match in the away end to watch his side's 2-1 win.

A Twitter user posted about the story, saying: "Met a kid yesterday in ground who’d applied for a job as kiosk worker decked out head to toe in work gear and he’d to start at 9am."

The infiltrator then revealed himself, with the Celtic supporter - whose Twitter handle is @calanclarkk1 - claiming to be the fan in question.

He tweeted: "Hahahaha here I am m8. Feet are killing me wearing they shoes all day."

As proof, he also posted a picture of the application form for the role as a kiosk assistant at Ibrox and an image of himself in the away end, with the words: "Hahaha wit a day I had yesterday. League over."

Rangers took an early lead in the tie, with Aaron Ramsey sweeping home after three minutes. However, goals from Tom Rogic and Cameron Carter-Vickers secured an important comeback victory for Ange Postecoglou's men - leaving them six points ahead of their rivals with six games left.
