Some Rangers fans are telling Celtic to forget about Paddy McNair after Ibrox sighting

Rangers fans show their support towards the Celtic fans during the Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership match between Celtic and Rangers at Celtic Park on March 31, 2019 in Glasgow, Scotland.

The player posed outside Ibrox in March 2018, and appears to be a fan of Steven Gerrard's Rangers.

Rangers fans are reacting to the news that a player perceived to be a Gers supporter is interesting their Glasgow rivals, Celtic - 18 months after he posed with a blue, white and red scarf outside Ibrox.

Footage of the incident was later shared by the player in question, Paddy McNair, on Instagram - much to the delight of those of a Rangers persuasion.


And after the Celtic boss, Neil Lennon, confirmed his side's interest in the Middlesbrough midfielder earlier this week (Scottish Sun), some of those have taken to social media to remind McNair - as well as their Bhoys counterparts - of his Rangers allegiance.


This is what they're saying...

Pls don’t sign for Celtic burn their stadium down imo 










Should the Northern Irishman indeed join Celtic this summer - and it's claimed he could be sold if Middlesbrough can recoup the initial £3 million they paid for him a year ago - he would not be the first Rangers-affiliated player to be lured to the other side.

The former Celtic favourites, Davie Provan, Kenny Dalglish and Jock Stein are all reported to have grown up supporting the Gers.

Would McNair be a good addition for Rangers instead?
