Quite a few Celtic fans on Twitter have slammed Rangers boss Steven Gerrard for his post-match comments on Thursday night.

Gerrard delivered a scathing assessment of his Rangers players after the 4-3 defeat away to Spartak Moscow, with Celtic winning 2-1 at home to Leipzig a few hours later.

The Gers boss told BT Sport: "Under-12s and under-13s normally can clear the ball with either foot… and when you get a bit older you learn to play the game professionally."

It was a damning verdict by the 38-year-old, whose side led 3-2 at one point, and a lot of Celtic fans on Twitter have mocked the manager of their Old Firm rivals for blaming his players instead of taking responsibility.

Here's the Hoops' fans reaction:

You can understand Gerrard's frustration. Rangers were 3-2 ahead at the break, before Luiz Adriano equalised on 58 minutes, while Sofiane Hanni gave the Russians the lead just 66 seconds later.

It must be bitterly disappointing from his perspective, but Celtic fans are entitled to have a laugh after their victory over Bundesliga side Leipzig at Parkhead.

It's arguably the Hoops' best result of the season and with Rangers losing a couple of hours previous, those on the green half of the Old Firm divide will feel justified in taking shots at their cross-city rivals.
