Does This Old James Tavernier Tweet Suggest Rangers Might Actually Give Celtic Guard of Honour?

The subject of Rangers giving Celtic a guard of honour at Ibrox next weekend will continue to be discussed in the coming week.

The Hoops clinched the Scottish Premiership title this afternoon with a 3-0 victory over Aberdeen at Pittodrie.

Mikael Lustig, Jozo Simunovic and Odsonne Edouard got the goals for Neil Lennon’s side – and that win now sets them up for a treble treble if they can beat Hearts in the Scottish Cup Final later this month.

But they have another big challenge before then, with a trip to Ibrox to come next weekend.

The idea of Rangers giving Celtic a guard of honour was discussed by some earlier in the week and Chris Sutton has first to mention it after the Hoops won today.

It’s tradition that the title winners get a guard of honour as they step on to the park in their first game after becoming champions.

But would fierce rivals Rangers really give Celtic that at Ibrox?

Well, we’re not so sure – but this Tavernier tweet from 2016 might suggest it could be possible:

Tavernier sent that tweet after Alloa clapped Rangers on to the pitch following their Championship title victory in 2016.

There was controversy at the time as Alloa attacker Michael Duffy – who was on loan from Celtic – refused to clap in that guard of honour.

Is there a chance of a guard of honour or should all talk of this stop now?
