The 52-year-old, who starred at Ibrox between 2004-06, was as arrogant to his old club’s former rivals as a full-time whistle was blowing at Parkhead.

Celtic lost 3-1 to Norway, next week in the second round the men of Ang Postikoglu have to do it all.

Rae was commenting on the Rangers’ famous Europa League victory over Borussia Dortmund in the hours before the Celtic game on BT Sport.

Apparently he was still feeling quite arrogant and as he was riding on the wave of hope he fired a barb towards Celtic Park, especially towards the famous disco lights of the stadium.

Using some popular poetic rhetoric, Rae said on Twitter: “Someone turn off the disco lights, it’s gone a little bit.”

Her tweet was accompanied by a light emoji and a dancing man emoji.
