Celtic’s Twitter team told "you’re better than that" after Rangers tweet

Celtic's media team have been slammed by social media users who have accused them of showing a lack of class during their Scottish Cup semi-final defeat to rivals Rangers at Hampden Park on Sunday (April 17).

Ange Postecoglou's Scottish Premiership leaders took a second-half lead through Greg Taylor but Scott Arfield forced the game into extra-time before the clash was decided in the favour of Giovanni van Bronckhorst's side by Carl Starfelt's unfortunate own goal.

After that 114th minute mistake, the official @CelticFC Twitter account, which has 810,000 followers, simply tweeted as they looked set to crash out at the last four stage: "Goal to the opposition."

One Twitter user said in response: "Show some class FFS."

TalkSport journalist David Tanner said: "Oh, come on! You’re better than that, guys!"

A third continued: "Such pettiness."

With a fourth agreeing: "Pathetic and classless."

And a fifth concluding: "What an embarrassment."

While many Celtic fans used their league position as a way to brush off the semi-final defeat, Rangers supporters are delighted to be heading back to Hampden for a final clash against Hearts.

Van Bronckhorst, who referenced their Europa League quarter-final victory over Braga, told Premier Sports: "I'm feeling pretty good and very proud. It's been a busy week for us, very demanding physically, also mentally.

"To play extra-time two times in four days, the players were magnificent today. We had to dig deep. We did it as a team and we're proud that we're in the final.

"The subs gave the team a lot of energy. It was a tough game because Celtic is a very tough opponent. We knew our character could make the difference.

"It's important to be in the final but the most important thing is to win the final.

"We haven't won anything yet in the cup. We want to achieve something and the belief is there that we can win the cup."
