And the towering Celtic centre-back has gradually become a huge player for Neil Lennon's side, who are above Rangers on goal difference in the Scottish Premiership title race.

Lennon's side and the Gers aren't only rivals on the pitch, but off it too.

 

And the 26-year-old has discovered the extent of the animosity that exists the Old Firm clubs, hinting that fans of the Ibrox side occasionally bother him in public.
