Video: DaMarcus Beasley’s Best Celtic v Rangers Memory Involves Kris Boyd and Green Skittles

DaMarcus Beasley’s long-lasting Celtic v Rangers memory is pretty hilarious – as it involves Kris Boyd and green Skittles.

The American wideman will be remembered by a number of teams from his career, including Chicago Fire, PSV, Manchester City, Hannover 96, Puebla 96, Houston Dynamo and the USA national team.

But he’ll also be a memory for Rangers fans after his three-year spell with the Scottish club between 2007 and 2010.

Beasley made 46 appearances for the Ibrox side in his time there and helped them to two Premier League trophies, a Scottish Cup and a League Cup in that time.

And he experienced a few games against bitter rivals Celtic too.

No green skittles

Beasley has shared a memory from those matches ahead of the teams going head-to-head at Parkhead tomorrow and it turns out to be a pretty hilarious story involving Boyd and green Skittles.

We’ll let Beasley tell you:

A rivalry so intense that green Skittles weren’t permitted among the Rangers squad.
