Video: Rangers Fans Silenced At Celtic Park On This Day

On this day in 2010, Neil Lennon’s Celtic made it seven wins on the bounce. The Celts defeated Rangers for the first time in two years and continued the interim Celtic boss’ 100% record since taking charge of the club.

Rangers had already won the league, but their fans had supposedly turned up for the party. After Lee Naylor’s opener, they regaled the Parkhead support with a rendition of Come On Over To My Place; a rare break from sectarian singing.

At that moment, Fortune scored his first Glasgow derby goal (well, his first that was allowed to stand after a goal earlier in the season was ridiculously ruled out for an alleged foul on the keeper) and the Rangers support suddenly stopped partying.

Watch as Paradise erupts and silences the old foe.

Hailing from an Irish background, I grew up on the English south coast with the good fortune to begin watching Celtic during the Martin O'Neill era. I have written four Celtic books since the age of 19: Our Stories & Our Songs: The Celtic Support, Take Me To Your Paradise: A History Of Celtic-Related Incidents & Events, Walfrid & The Bould Bhoys: Celtic's Founding Fathers, First Season & Early Stars, and The Holy Grounds of Glasgow Celtic: A Guide To Celtic Landmarks & Sites Of Interest. These were previously sold in Waterstones and official Celtic FC stores, and are now available on Amazon.
