Kieran Maguire mocks Celtic after fan makes Rangers financial claim

We’re used to seeing Celtic fans bleat on about Rangers on social media and make baseless remarks or accusations, so it’s always great to see when they get put in their place.

Such an occurrence happened when one overly-Rangers concerned individual repeatedly pressed football finance expert Kieran Maguire on the finances at our club.

Firstly, Maguire responded on his personal Twitter profile to suggestions that he was being paid by Rangers for “adverts and publicity”, simply telling the user ‘Stewart’ that it was not the case at all.

After being repeatedly pressed, Maguire delivered a withering putdown to the Celtic fan to his 65,000-plus Twitter followers, with compelling evidence attached.

He wrote: “Hi Stewart, you keep asking me if there are any clubs that have more shares in issue than Rangers 400 million.

“I’ve found a wee club in Glasgow called Celtic who have 796 million in issue, not sure you’ve heard of them as you only ever contact me about Rangers.”

Priceless

Celtic fans should be careful what they wish, and in this case, ask for.

They seem to spend a lot of time denigrating our club without facing their own issues at hand.

All these accusatory fingers being pointed at us, yet their issues seem to be staring them in the face.

It looks like they’re failing in every area at the moment, with even their fans receiving repeated humiliation.

This time it came courtesy of one of the most respected experts in football financial matters, Maguire, who finally decided to put ‘Stewart’ in his place after constant comments disparaging Rangers.

Maguire came with a zinger of a reply followed by the evidence to back up his assertions.

Stewart even tried to row back slightly on his comments, trying to reformulate his questions to fit his agenda, but the damage was done with egg well and truly on his face.
