Everton congratulate David Weir on Twitter after Rangers beat Celtic

Everton Goodison 640

Mark Warburton's side progressed to the Scottish Cup final on Sunday afternoon.

Everton have tweeted their congratulations to former player David Weir after Rangers beat Celtic on Sunday afternoon.

The Gers needed penalties to see off their old rivals in the Scottish Cup semi-final in a scintillating Old Firm derby.

Mark Warburton’s side had twice had the lead in the game only for Celtic to fight their way back to 2-2, with his side eventually winning 5-4 on penalties.

The result was the latest positive moment in a huge campaign for the club after they sealed their return to the Scottish Premiership and won the Petrofac Cup in recent weeks.

And Everton were keen to congratulate their former player on Twitter for his side's latest success. 

What will have pleased Rangers most is that they are not seemingly far away from their rivals heading into next season.

Many were suggesting that this game was the perfect chance for Warburton to see how much work he will need to do to get his side up to scratch for the top flight next year.

And on this evidence, it seems the Gers may not be far from challenging for the title against the Bhoys once again.
