A PRO-GOLFER pranked his Rangers-daft caddie on Old Firm day – by wearing Celtic colours.
Tyrrell Hatton, from High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, couldn’t resist winding up his caddie as the Old Firm met for the first time this season.
Mark Crane, from Ayrshire, was gobsmacked when he turned up to the third round of the Dell Technologies Championship in Norton, Massachusetts, on Sunday.
Pro-golfer Hatton couldn’t resist dressing head to toe in green-and-white in an attempt to wind up caddie Crane.
Celtic went on to win the tense match against their old firm rivals 1-0 thanks to Olivier Ntcham’s second half goal.
Hatton uploaded the hilarious selfie to Twitter with the caption: “When @markcrane_punk is a huge Rangers fan so I wear Celtic Colours on match day.”
The post already has over 1,000 likes since he uploaded it yesterday evening. (SUN)
The pair can be seen standing on the green as they prepare to tee off.
Crane, dressed in a black top, black cap and white shorts, is standing with a half-frown on his face.
Clearly unamused, Crane can be seen flipping off into the camera as Hatton, wearing a white hat and green-and-white polo shirt, grins broadly.
On social media, Stephen Gallagher, Scottish Ryder Cup star and avid Celtic fan, clearly saw the funny side. He wrote: “I’m so happy good luck.”
Dornans Scott Fans commented: “Glad to see you’re wearing the right colours. Good luck today.”
Peter Horner wrote: “Liked you before this, love you now. Hail hail, mon the Hatton.”
Gordie Bhoy said: “Top man Tyrrell. Welcome to the Celtic family.”
However, Alistair McGregor wasn’t impressed, adding: “Hope you don’t smell like one of them too when wearing that? @markcrane_punk 100 yards away from the stench at all times bud.”
Hatton is a self-proclaimed Liverpool fan, which might lead many to believe he would be supporting Rangers during the derby.
However, Liverpool and Celtic do have many links – including the fan favourite anthem “You’ll never walk alone” which both clubs supporters sing at matches.
Golfer Hatton is currently tied for second-place in the Dell Technologies Championship, with one day of the competition left to go.
Hatton and Crane have only been partnered together since June, following the departure of former caddie and Hatton’s best friend Jonathan Bell.
The pair had been together since September 2017 and was only meant to be a short term partnership.
But after initial success saw Hatton win back-to-back titles at the Dunhill Links, the Italian Open and third at the European Masters – they stayed together.
This success saw Hatton rise into the top 20 players in the world and Bell made around $150,000.
However, it put a lot of strain on their friendship and they separated in order to preserve their relationship.
Hatton and new caddie Crane will head off to Paris later this month as the Englishman makes his debut in the Ryder Cup.
