Kolo Toure put up a fight but eventually fell for young Rangers fan’s trick

He initially resisted

Maybe he just wanted to get away from the kid.

2017 has seen plenty of Rangers supporters attempt to get the better of Celtic players on camera.

We’ve had Leigh Griffiths putting a Gers fan in his place at the airport by telling him: “Your club’s dead, mate. Beat it!”

Scott Brown also had a run-in of his own at an airport as he fell foul of a prank after kindly posing with what he believed to be a pair of Celtic supporters, only for the duo to reveal themselves as fans of arch-rivals Rangers and break into a rendition of We are the People.

A similar gag was attempted recently, with Celtic coach Toure the intended victim.

The former defender, who is now a part of Brendan Rodgers’ backroom team, was asked to step in for a photograph with a youngster and was asked to say “We are the People” for the camera.

Toure initially put up a fight and refused to say those words, seemingly aware of their association to Rangers, but the supporter eventually convinced him that it was a Celtic phrase and the friendly 36-year-old caved.

Although, to be fair to Toure, there’s also the possibility that he’d grown tired of the interaction and just wanted to get away.
