Celtic and Rangers fans react on Twitter to rumours Old-Firm match could be held at Wembley

Celtic and Rangers could be set to meet at Wembley, with both the International Champions Cup wanting a meeting between the two Glasgow clubs.

The prospect of hosting an Old-Firm match at Wembley seems to have divided opinion amongst Rangers and Celtic supporters.

Charlie Stillitano has announced plans for the two Glasgow sides to meet at England’s national stadium (Daily Mail), where over 90,000 supporters could be in attendance.

Stillitano owns the friendly tournament, the International Champions Cup, which pits some of the biggest teams in Europe against each other in pre-season.

And the US sports executive believes that a match between Celtic and Rangers would increase the exposure and popularity of the competition.

Celtic and Rangers have one of the fiercest derbies in world football, and even if it was a pre-season match, it would be taken very seriously by both sides.

The pair have never before played an Old-Firm match at Wembley, but the thought of it happening has not been unanimously welcomed by supporters of either club.

Some Rangers and Celtic fans have predicted it would be chaos hosting the fixture at Wembley, while others seem totally unenthused by the prospect.

Rangers won the last meeting between the two sides earlier this month.

Mark Warburton’s side beat Celtic on penalties, after the rivals had played out a 2-2 draw in the Scottish Cup.
