Celtic fans delighted with Artur Boruc as he claims he will be at Ibrox to watch Rangers play Legia Warsaw

The Polish goalkeeper spent five years at Celtic Park earlier in his career.

Rangers face their biggest game of the season so far tomorrow night when they face Legia Warsaw in the Europa League.

Victory against the Polish giants over two legs would see the Gers reach the group stages of the competition for the second season running.

It would appear that Legia Warsaw will have a former Celtic player cheering them on over the two legs.

Ex-Hoops goalkeeper Artur Boruc has told the Daily Record that he plans to go to the second-leg at Ibrox and sit with the away fans.

The Bournemouth stopper had six years with the Polish side at the start of his career, prior to joining Celtic in 2005.

In five years at Celtic Park, he featured in 221 games for the Hoops becoming a firm fan favourite.

This news has naturally delighted the Celtic fans.

Nonetheless, Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to speak of their delight at the 39-year-old backing an opponent of their fierce rivals.

Here is a selection of tweets regarding Boruc heading to Ibrox to support Legia Warsaw:
