Rangers supporters ransack Celtic Park toilets after Old Firm defeat

Football News

After four long years of waiting, this weekend finally saw the Old Firm return to the Scottish Premier League. Given Rangers’ dramatic tumble down to the foot of Scottish football, one of the game’s fieriest derbies has been overdue a return.

In terms of goals, the game produced plenty in what proved an entertaining clash. However, it was one-way traffic as Celtic inflicted a merciless 5-1 thrashing upon their Glaswegian neighbours.

Unsurprisingly, the travelling Rangers supporters didn’t take too kindly to the mauling. Their methods of anger exertion have certainly proved unorthodox though with Celtic Park’s toilets taking a beating.

Given Rangers’ tumultuous recent history, the quality of their squad has taken a nosedive since the last time they featured in the SPL.

Nonetheless, with Joey Barton in their squad and the very accomplished Mark Warburton at the helm, many still predicted a close game.

It proved anything but however as Celtic simply ran riot in front of their own fans. Moussa Dembele hit home a hat trick with Scott Sinclair and Stuart Armstrong also finding their place on the scoresheet.

Rangers did bag a consolation strike at least with Joe Garner finding the net, but Philippe Senderos’ sending off ultimately ended the contest.


Consequently, a group of riled up Rangers supporters took it upon themselves to cause havoc in the toilets of all places.

The ceiling of a block of loos suffered substantial damage, toilet seats were torn off and cubicle doors were ripped from their hinges. Images of the aftermath can be seen below:

This widespread instance of vandalism has been reported to the Scottish Police and Celtic are treating this as an internal matter also.

Nevertheless, it certainly demonstrates the frustration felt by a group of fans that saw their team beaten pillar to post by their local rivals. It certainly doesn’t constitute such low and extreme actions however.
