Rangers were given a guard of honour at the weekend against Alloa after clinching promotion from the Scottish Championship as champions.
Yet one Alloa player stood there with no applause, refusing to acknowledge the Gers: on loan Celtic prospect Michael Duffy.
The Derry born striker even went onto score in the game, although Rangers bounced back to claim a 1-1 draw.
Rangers were presented with the league trophy in front of their home fans at Ibrox after the game, but Duffy's actions made the headlines, with the Daily Record reporting the 21-year-old's snub.
Celtic had lost the Scottish Cup semi-final to Rangers on penalties a week earlier, and will face Mark Warburton's side in the Scottish Premiership next season.
The goal was Duffy's third goal of the season, and second in his last three games, with Alloa bottom of the division, scoring just 21 goals in 35 games, of which they have won only four.
His goal tally is not really enough to have him beating down the first team door next season, although the new, yet to be appointed, manager at Celtic may be able to find a role for him.
Whether he makes it or not, his actions at the weekend were lauded by Celtic fans on social media who believed he was right to snub Rangers. Here is a look at the reaction...
