It was billed by Sky Sports as Rivalry Weekend but there is a world of difference between the passion that is associated with Celtic and Manchester United.

Both teams came out on top in their weekend fixture, earning bragging rights, but there is a world of difference between the fans attending matches.

When Odsonne Edouard darted into the Sevco penalty box Celtic fans were on their toes, when the ball broke to Marcus Rashford United fans were on their mobiles with their fingers on record.

As Edouard curled a shot around Wesley Foderingham the Broomloan Road stand turned into a wave of euphoria as fans lost it in celebration. The sight that greeted the young Frenchman must have been awesome.

While some United fans did an old fashioned cheer for Rashford for most capturing the moment of their phone was far more important.

There was a time when Celtic and United drew their support from similar areas, mainly working classes from in and around their city plus a few distant fans.

At Ibrox there wasn’t much evidence of prawn sandwiches and half and half scarves.
