Rangers journalist mocks Celtic after defeat amid vile anti-monarch banner in crowd

Rangers Review journalist Derek Clark has mocked Celtic after their 2-0 defeat at St Mirren amid a vile banner raised in the crowd before the game.

Celtic fans booed the minute’s silence for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and chanted vile songs while a huge banner was held up in the away end reading, “if you hate the royal family clap your hands”.

But after their defeat, Clark took to his personal Twitter account to fire back at those fans with a quick-witted message.

“If you love a bit of karma, clap your hands,” he said, in a thinly-veiled swipe at the result and the banner.

Rangers now sit two points behind Celtic in the Scottish Premiership title race after their 2-1 win over Dundee United on Saturday afternoon.

Obviously the rivalry between the two Old Firm clubs is more than just football, but some things have a line because of human decency and once again Celtic have shown themselves up.

As if the singing and taunting over Her Majesty’s death wasn’t bad enough, the banner to try and get others involved and to make a big scene is horrendous and they deserve to be severely punished.

Credit to Clark however for making sure it didn’t go without being noticed and the result wasn’t lost in the disgust for the vile showing by the fans.

Karma is the perfect word to summarise what happened, with Celtic getting well beaten by a side that honestly has no right in beating them and it’s fair to say that the spirit of Queen Elizabeth was with them on the day.

Now the title race is back on despite Rangers supposedly being in a “crisis” and hopefully we can silence that lot properly by taking the title off them come May.
