Celtic defender Alistair Johnston aimed a savage taunt at Rangers rival Todd Cantwell after lifting the Scottish Cup trophy.

The Parkhead full-back couldn't resist a dig at Cantwell on social media after victory over Rangers at Hampden on Saturday.

Johnston, 25, used Cantwell's words against him as he referenced a deleted Instagram post from the Rangers playmaker.

The former Norwich midfielder had shared an image of his goal celebration against Hearts with the caption: "Shushburger please 😂"

Glasgow Times:

Cantwell had his finger to his mouth in the celebration shot but quickly removed the post.

However, Johnston didn't forget the social media slip as he referenced Cantwell after winning the Scottish Cup.

Commenting on Greg Taylor's Instagram post branding Celtic a "Special club 💚" with a trophy lift snap, Johnston commented: "eating a 🤫burger tonight wee man???"

Taylor responded with a series of laughing face emojis and shush gesture emojis. Team-mates Stephen Welsh couldn't believe the social media dig, commenting: "no chance😭😭😭😭"

Johnston's remark comes after Chris Sutton took aim at Cantwell with a similar one-liner.

The pundit posted on X: "Well played Celtic and Adam Idah. I may celebrate with a Shushburger this evening…"

Cantwell was involved in a number of flashpoints during the Scottish Cup final as he clashed with Callum McGregor and Greg Taylor.

As he was being subbed, Cantwell was cautioned for a confrontation with the Celtic defender.

And at full-time, Philippe Clement pushed Cantwell away from match officials in a furious exchange.
