Ryan Kent has moved to explain the gesture he made in the Old Firm game after scoring the opening goal for Rangers. 

Rangers finished the first half of the season on a huge high after beating Celtic 2-1 at their home ground.

Kent scored the opening goal and courted controversy when he ran towards the home fans making a gun to the head gesture.

On his Instagram account, Kent pointed out that the gesture was a tribute to hip-hop act Smif-N-Wessun.

The rap duo were hit with a lawsuit from gun manufacturers Smith & Wesson in the mid-90s, and to avoid this they changed their name to Cocoa Brovaz.

Alex Rae rubbished criticism of Kent, pointing to Robbe Keane’s celebrations and saying, “Robbie Keane did it throughout his whole career and I don’t think I ever heard anyone mention it.”

It might not have been the wisest celebration in the context of the impassioned Old Firm clash, but neither should it be used by pundits to take away what was an incredible win for Rangers.

Rangers dominated the league cup final and came away empty-handed. This time they got the job done, although Alfredo Morelos is still waiting for his first goal against Celtic.

He picked up another red card after seeming to dive towards the end of the game at Parkhead.
