The reason behind Celtic fans’ vengeance on Gerrard’s celebration

The Celtic fans were evidently furious at Gerrard’s celebration due to his previous connection with their Glasgow rivals, Rangers FC. He was the leading figure to end the Hoops’ dominance in the Scottish Premiership by leading Rangers FC to a title win in 2021.

Despite the objects thrown at him, Gerrard continued to goad the Celtic fans as he dispersed from the scene. The home team went on to win 2-0, but Gerrard’s goal remained the biggest talking point of the match.

The match featured several legendary players, such as Dirk Kuyt, Robbie Keane, and Luis Garcia, and the aim is to raise money for programmes across Merseyside under the LFC Foundation.

Speaking after the match, Gerrard said “It feels good when I score against Lio in the back garden! It’s football; it’s the game you love and the club you adore.”

The incident raises questions over the sportsmanship in charity matches and the rivalry it carries in a game regardless of the event’s charitable purpose.
