Rangers fan launches cheeky jibe at Celtic with own version of Burns Night toast

THIS is the hilarious moment a Rangers fan launches a cheeky jibe at Celtic with his own version of a Burns Night toast.

The die-hard Gers supporter sat down for haggis, neeps and tatties with family and was tasked with the tradition of delivering the pre-meal speech.

However, the Scotsman decided to put his own spin on the poem, with an X-rated swipe at his Old Firm rivals.

The video begins with the group gathered round the table as plates are piled high with the traditional Scottish meal.

Two pints can be seen, having already been sipped from, as an anonymous member of the family grinds salt onto his food.

At the head of the table, the Gers fan kneels behind his chair, set to begin his speech to signal the beginning of the meal.

He starts: “Its braw this nicht to be with friends and no with strangers.”

He then pauses for a moment before raising his fist in the air and cheekily rhyming: “F**k the Celtic, God bless the Rangers.”

The room erupts into laughter at the man’s remark with the family left howling and applauding the rhyme as the would-be poet stretches a hand out to pat someone on the back.

Still laughing at his own joke, the cheeky Rangers fan pulls his chair out and sits down so he can enjoy his meal.

The clip was posted to social media last week with the caption: “Burns Night 2024, Rabbie Burns.”

It has since received 800 likes and dozens of comments from social media users finding the man’s speech hilarious.

The traditional meal of a Burns Supper is a celebration of the life and work of the poet Robert Burns who lived from 25 January 1759 – 21 July 1796.

Robert Burns was hailed as “the bard of Scotland”, with the day of his birth being dedicated to traditionally sharing a Burns Supper.

The first Burns supper was held in memoriam at Burns cottage in Ayrshire by his friends in 1801.
