“They gave Gio a weans mug”, “They need to fast forward five centuries!” – Celtic fans rinse weird Sevco video
Yeah this has always kind of weirded me out.
The first time I saw it, it was Gerrard taking part in The Loving Cup ceremony in the Ibrox Blue Room.
A strange wee tradition where grown men all fawn round each other and drink out of a cup to celebrate the very Queen they didn’t want to pay taxes toward.
Even at the time Gerrard did it, he looked visibly uncomfortable and now it was wee Gio’s turn.
And wait till you see the look on his face:
All very odd seeing as the first guy doesn’t even take a drink and wee Gio kidding on he enjoyed it.
What a strange club.
And it was met with some tremendous twitter take downs:
I swear, If someone gave them a turd that was supposed to be King Billys they would create a ceremony around it. Probably pass it around on a silver platter with each one, in turn, having a sniff. “ra King’s Toaly”!
