Celtic Troll Rangers on Twitter Over 2008 UEFA Cup Final Defeat to Zenit

Celtic Troll Rangers on Twitter Over 2008 UEFA Cup Final Defeat to Zenit

Celtic have sought about making friends with Europa League opponents Zenit Saint Petersburg on social media this afternoon – by taking a cheeky dig at arch-rivals Rangers.

The Hoops take on their Russian counterparts in the Europa League first-leg last-32 on Thursday night, under the floodlights at Celtic Park, and both sides’ media teams have started the build-up this afternoon on Twitter.

Zenit quickly questioned why Celtic had used their old club crest on the match-day programme for Thursday night’s match, and supporters of both teams will absolutely love the Premiership champions’ explanation:

Of course, Zenit won their first and only major European honour back in 2008 by beating Rangers 2-0 at Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium, leaving Walter Smith’s players dejected at full-time.

They might not have too much in common with one another, particularly when the match kicks-off on Thursday, but for now at least they can enjoy a little bit of light-hearted trolling at the Gers’ expense.

Who do you think will come out on top in the tie?
