The two Scottish grandees showed a totally opposite attitude towards the royal family of Great Britain.
During their Champions League group match against Shakhtar Donetsk, Celtic fans held up an offensive banner reading: “Fuck the crown”. The match ended in a 1:1 draw.
Glasgow Rangers fell 3-0 to Napoli at Ibrox. The home fans paid a fitting tribute to Queen Elizabeth II, who died aged 96 on Thursday.
Rangers supporters had prepared a special choreography that painted the monarch’s face with the British flag in the background.
Glasgow fans sang the British national anthem ‘God Save the King’ ahead of their Champions League clash with Napoli, while their city rivals Celtic observed a minute’s silence before visiting Shakhtar.
Rangers have historically been associated with loyalty to the British crown. On the other side of Glasgow is Celtic, whose fans are more closely related to the Irish and to members of the Catholic faith in Great Britain.
