There is pretty much no-one that Celtic and Rangers fans won’t argue with, and that’s probably why one Celtic supporter has spent Wednesday afternoon having it out with the official Subway account.
That’s not ‘Subway’ as in Glasgow’s Clockwork Orange. That’s ‘Subway’ as in sandwiches.
The Independent posted a tweet confirming that Subway customers can now choose crisps as a sandwich filling.
That bombshell prompted Celtic supporter @bigmaverick1 to tweet: “Knowing @SUBWAY they’ll count the number of crisps as they put them on your sub!! Miserable as they are!!”
Talking about miserable! Celtic appointing Eddie Howe as the new manager. That's not even putting crisps on your sub but taking away the meat of your sub. #CrispIn

In response, the talking sandwich responded by taking a dig at the seemingly inevitable appointment of Eddie Howe as Celtic’s next manager. Despite the likes of Roy Keane, Enzo Maresca and Rafa Benitez having been mentioned in connection with the vacancy at Celtic Park, former Bournemouth boss Howe is expected to be confirmed in the near future.
The sandwich tweeted: “Talking about miserable! Celtic appointing Eddie Howe as the new manager.
“That’s not even putting crisps on your sub but taking away the meat of your sub. #CrispIn.”
All things considered, this is down there with Charlie Nicholas’ Specsavers patter, but then again it is a sentient sandwich we’re dealing with.
“You guys should focus on sandwich making and not football banter” said @lenere118, to which the salty footlong representative replied: “At Subway we try to offer something to all our guests.”
Big Maverick bit back by tweeting: “If your (sic) looking a (sic) decent sandwich the LAST place you go is @SUBWAY!”
The conscious bread-based snack replied: “If your (sic) looking for a decent game the first place to go is Ibrox Park.”
