Celtic stars Denayer and Stokes react to 2-0 win over rivals Rangers

Celtic Parkhead

Celtic duo Jason Denayer and Anthony Stokes both took to Twitter after beating Rangers 2-0.

Celtic did what was expected of them on Sunday - they defeated their Glasgow rivals Rangers in the first Old Firm derby for almost three years.

The two fierce enemies met at Hampden Park on Sunday in the Scottish League Cup semi-final, with Celtic running out 2-0 winners in a comfortable victory.

Striker Leigh Griffiths opened the scoring with a back post header inside the first ten minutes, before playmaker Kris Commons hammered home a superb drive from 20 yards to make it 2-0, sending Celtic to the final and a meeting with Dundee United in March.

Fans were naturally delighted to earn bragging rights over their local rivals, but players also took to Twitter after the game to celebrate the victory with messages to fans.

Defender Jason Denayer and forward Anthony Stokes both played key parts in Celtic's win, and tweeted their joy after the final whistle.

Manchester City loanee Denayer paid tribute to the travelling Celtic fans, whilst Stokes acknowledged how difficult it was to play on a terrible Hampden Park pitch.
