BBC journalist mocks Celtic fans as hilarious theory about Rangers-Patterson sale emerges

A number of Celtic fans seem to think Rangers got just £4.5million for Nathan Patterson because of a tweet on Everton’s official Twitter account.

It’s been widely reported that Patterson, 20, has left Ibrox in a club-record deal that could eventually see the Gers pocket £16million but Celtic fans aren’t having it and seem to think the deal was just £4.5million.

That’s because Everton did a price reveal saying that Patterson is worth £4.5million – on Fantasy Premier League.

VideoCelts even decided to write an entire article – that has obviously since been deleted – that accuses the mainstream media of lying about the value of Patterson’s transfer to Everton.

Joe McHugh seems to be obsessed by Patterson’s move to Goodison and seems intent on getting to the bottom of what the actual figure was.

But the struggling Celtic blogger has been absolutely destroyed by Rangers fans in regards to his article while BBC Scotland journalist Tom English has also mocked him – and other Celtic supporters – for believing that a Fantasy Premier League value is the same as a real-life transfer value.

“These Celtic fans claiming that Everton officially revealed Nathan Patterson’s transfer at £4.5m are a humorous lot,” English tweeted via his personal Twitter account on Thursday morning.

“That’s what he costs on Fantasy Premier League lads.

“And, no, Mo Salah is not actually available for £12.8m…”

It’s beyond hilarious that the Celtic fans’ obsession with Rangers has brought them to this point.

What’s so unbelievable about Everton agreeing a package that could eventually cost them £16million for Patterson?

According to Sky Sports Italy journalist Fabrizio Romano, the package starts at £12million.

For one moment, just stop and think to yourself about what kind of agenda Romano would have about Rangers selling a player to Everton.

You just have to laugh about it. No one on this side of Glasgow is angered by the claims from the East End, especially when they are so pathetic and clearly wrong.

They’ll always be the best source of entertainment in Scottish football.

In other Rangers news, a Sky Sports journalist has mooted a move for a player who’s been tipped to “explode” in 2022.
