A clip of Tommy Sheridan predicting that Celtic would "put them to the sword" has been widely shared by Rangers fans in the aftermath of Saturday's derby.

Steven Gerrard's side left Celtic Park with a 2-0 victory, despite Sheridan's claim that it would be nothing more than "a wee practice match" for Neil Lennon's men ahead of Thursday's Europa League fixture against Milan.

The former member of Scottish Parliament is a vocal Celtic fan, and he reiterated his support of Lennon amid criticism from fans.

In a video uploaded on Thursday, he said: "Hail hail boys and girls.

"I don't know about you, but I'm quite nervous. We've got a big game coming up, I'm really, really nervous.

"They're a big club. They've had a lot of good results. I mean, it's going to be hard.

"I hope that we can raise our game, and that we can beat them.

"Because when AC Milan come to Parkhead next week, it'll be a tough one. Fortunately, we've got a wee game before that, a wee practice match, where we've got another Glasgow team visiting us from across the city.

"Another Glasgow team that we're going to put to the sword."

After insisting that he would back Lennon regardless of what team he picked, Sheridan said: "Hail Hail. Let's put them to the sword on Saturday, and then have the big game against AC Milan on the Thursday."

Sheridan's prediction didn't quite hit the mark, with Connor Goldson's double securing a comfortable win for Rangers.

Fans of Steven Gerrard's side lapped up the video, with @Gogsygee calling it "the funniest thing on Twitter this weekend" and @spiderPiglets tweeting: "I have watched this six times with a smile on my face."
