Mikael Lustig Joins in with Celtic Fans Trolling Steven Gerrard on Instagram

Mikael Lustig Joins in with Celtic Fans Trolling Steven Gerrard on Instagram

Mikael Lustig has given his approval to a clip on Instagram made by Celtic fans ruthlessly mocking Rangers manager Steven Gerrard.

The Swedish right-back is enjoying something of a renaissance in the Hoops starting-XI under Neil Lennon, after seemingly falling out of favour towards the end of Brendan Rodgers’ era.

But the 32-year-old put in a vintage display in Saturday’s Old Firm Derby win over bitter rivals Rangers at Parkhead, and it seems he’s enjoying every second of being back in favour, not only in the Celtic team but amongst the club’s supporters too.

Popular Instagram account Celtic Goals posted a video showing a clip of Gerrard speaking in his media conference earlier this week, in which he states he’s never seen a police officer playing in an Old Firm game.

And, obviously, that was an open goal for Hoops supporters to retort with images of Lustig wearing a policeman’s hat during the 5-0 win over the Gers in April last year.

As you can see from the comments section, the man himself definitely approves:

What do you think of Lustig’s return to form, and should he be awarded a new contract in the summer?

Let us know in the comments section below…
