Kris Boyd has taken a swipe at Celtic fans after they mocked him over Rangers’ shock Betfred Cup exit at St Mirren on Wednesday night.

Conor McCarthy’s stoppage-time goal earned a 3-2 victory for the Buddies in Paisley as the Gers suffered their first defeat of the season.

Ex-Rangers forward Boyd was covering the game on Sky Sports News and Celtic fans were quick to grab screenshots of his face when St Mirren netted the late winner.

Boyd has since taken to his personal Instagram account to remind Celtic supporters where they currently sit in the Scottish Premiership table and how far behind Rangers they are.

He said: “Calm down. Some peoples’ fingers are working again.”

Let’s face it – we can’t blame them

We cannot blame Celtic fans for taking this one and only opportunity to mock Rangers this season.

When you’re team is so bad that they are 13 points off the pace before Christmas, already out of the Betfred Cup and have been humiliated in the Champions League and Europa League then whenever your rivals lose, it becomes the biggest talking point on social media.

You only ever hear from Celtic fans nowadays when they want their manager to be sacked or if Rangers have been awarded a penalty. It’s a bit sad really.

We can take this defeat on the chin. It’s not the end of the world.

As much as we would have loved to win the Betfred Cup and get the silverware rolling in once more, we do have much bigger fish to try.

Rangers’ biggest goal this season is to win the Scottish Premiership.

If we mess that up then there will be a meltdown but something like the League Cup could be viewed as a distraction.

In other Rangers news, fans were blown away by this one player despite the loss at St Mirren.
