Celtic youngster Liam Burt has slapped down a Rangers troll who branded him a "dirty fenian b******" in the wake of his side's Betfred Cup final win.

Burt watched the Hoops first-team nick a 1-0 win over their rivals at Hampden Park yesterday afternoon.

The 20-year-old couldn't hide his delight at the victory and shared a photo from the game with the caption "Beautiful Sunday".

Glasgow Times:

One Gers fan, still reeling from the defeat, didn't mince words and lashed out with the sectarian abuse in reply, calling Burt - who previously played for the Light Blues - a "dirty fenian b******".

But the player refused to allow it to get to him, simply replying: "And I love it", with smiley emojis and a green love heart.

The vile insult has been deleted from social media and the fan in question has since deactivated his Twitter account.
