Celtic snus, Rangers news and SPFL booze in the week on Twitter with Old Firm Facts

Celtic manager Neil Lennon stays classy in another eventful seven days on social media

It was only a couple of weeks ago that I realised it was pronounced ‘snoose’ and not ‘snuss’.

It’s important to know these things, what with ‘snus’ now being the third most used word in association with Lennon, behind ‘out’ and ‘OUT’ in all caps.

He has shown signs of turning it around in recent weeks, with a completely respectful Odsonne Edouard penalty setting them on the road to victory in Hamilton.

Elsewhere, John Hughes returned to continue his lifelong battle with the English language, Michael O’Halloran pulled a Len Grossman and something snuck through the Palmerston Park cat flap.

Here’s how the last seven days in Scottish football played out on social media.

WARNING: Contains harrowing imagery involving Charlie Nicholas and Quavers.


The lilting tones of Steven Morrissey are these days more readily associated with underwhelming solo material, dwindling ticket sales and political opinions worthy of a UKIP leader or former Scottish Football Association performance director.

It was a pleasant change, then, to hear that voice in connection with something rather more wholesome.


If that’s left you slightly emotional, have yourself some McCoist to cheer you up.

This tweet is what the English language was invented for.

Vindication for Peter Lawwell.

Neil McCann’s comments, however, will take a bit longer to live down.

Say what you like about this, but there are few more appropriate partnerships than Scottish football and cheap booze.

John Hughes is back. THAT John Hughes.

Will he make it through his first week at Ross County without mangling a player’s name? Stay tuned.


CLASSIC CAMEOS: Christopher Walken (Pulp Fiction, 1994). Tom Cruise (Tropic Thunder, 2008). Michael O’Halloran (St Johnstone v Rangers, 2020).


Remember that John Hughes question from Tuesday?


If you’re wondering whether the man in charge of Albania’s military remembered to wear his Celtic top on Christmas Day, wonder no more.

He wasn’t the only big name in Scottish football colours.


Cosy hat and a tin of Snus. Santa delivers once again.

If you liked ‘Ross County keep signing guys called Ross’, you’ll love…

Both heroes, in a way.


Queen of the South apologised for you being offended.
