‘Bittonbauer’ Applauded & Someone Does Ric Flair Impression: Celtic Fans React After Win Vs Rangers

Celtic and Rangers had a hundred percent winning start in the Premiership so far and both teams got a chance to inflict damage on the other before the international break as they squared up at Ibrox. Celtic came out victorious by two goals to nil as they were more composed and clinical in their approach.

Rangers might have quality players but none of them turned up when it mattered the most. Moreover, Celtic were playing with an almost makeshift backline as most of their first-choice defenders were out with injuries. Here is how Twitter reacted as Celtic won the 418th Old Firm Derby.

Rangers were being built as the favourites for this encounter but they hardly troubled Celtic. Shows that there might be still some way to go for the Gers to match the Hoops.

Bitton who is a midfielder by trade was a calming influence at the back. Some Celtic fans drew parallels with Virgil Van Dijk

If Van Dijk wasn’t enough then some fans compared Bitton to German football legend Franz Beckenbauer.

The big player turned up again for the Bhoys

Gerrard was being seen as a better manager than Lennon but this game showed why he might have some way to go.

Lennon does a Ric Flair impression.

Can’t say that it’s not true as Arfield made on an atrocious attempt at stopping Ntcham.

Great capture from the cameraman.

Thug life from Lennon

With various injuries and departure of a crucial player like Tierney, this was a confidence-boosting win for the Hoops. Celtic were comfortable for the most part of the game and they seemed to know what they were doing. Rangers, on the other hand, were disjointed and it seemed like the occasion got the better of them. Until the next derby, Gerrard is likely going to live in the shadows of Lennon and he will have to catch up on points as well as Celtic take a three-point lead early on in the season.
