  • Rangers and Celtic these two Glaswegian football clubs contest the Old

  • Firm derby one of the nastiest rivalries in world football and to say that it's

  • nasty is an understatement because the players absolutely hate each other and

  • the fans they hate each other even more and the reasons why they hate

  • each other have certainly been well-documented but is it as bad as the

  • media makes it out to be what happens when you wear one team shirt in the

  • opposing team stadium tour the Old Firm derby has been contested for well over a

  • hundred years and the honours between them are roughly equal but what's it

  • like to actually go around each other stadiums now regulus of my channel will

  • know that I'm a Manchester United fan and I have been for quite some time and

  • if I've got to be honest I don't really have much of an opinion on Rangers or

  • Celtic I barely watch Scottish football I promise in an old firm game probably

  • what twice in my life and I don't have any preference to any team one way or

  • the other I'm not religious and not a unionist or a Republican these two teams

  • are about as neutral as you can get but I'm curious to know is it really true

  • what people say about Rangers all Celtic and do they hate each other so much that

  • the share sites at their colours and fills them with rage well I'm here to

  • find out now a few guideline rules before we get started number one no

  • antagonizing I'm not here to piss anybody off intentionally I just want to

  • see what their reaction is going to be number two confession if for some reason

  • they figure out that I'm not a real ranges or Celtic fan mainly because of

  • my appearance and accents if they challenge me on it

  • I will confess and say no I'm not actually a Rangers or Celtic fan

  • and number three no fighting whilst I am a trained fighter I don't want to be

  • spending the afternoon and evening in a Glaswegian hospital or prison so no

  • fighting am I going to get stabbed by wearing a Celtic orange shirt in the

  • opposing team Stadium let's find out I bought Stadium Celtic shirt alright

  • let's get this over and done with I bought Stadium the home of Rangers

  • Football Club this rather imposing looking building is the third largest

  • football ground in Scotland and has been the traditional home for Rangers and

  • when you walk around the ground red brickwork traditional style architecture

  • and you can tell almost immediately that there's a lot of history behind this

  • Football Club and everywhere you look is a sea of blue and red guys I'm literally

  • 1 minutes in 1 minutes and already I've got angry car drivers blaring the horns

  • at me so yeah I'm gonna start so far that's what actually begins on the side

  • of the stadium that's next in the main road at that Club reception and almost

  • immediately I noticed that the Rangers fans don't want anything to do with me

  • in fact they making a conscious effort to keep that distance away from me hello

  • sir how are you I am so sorry say it so you didn't see them - they're not Jesse

  • I might not get back out shit is it really that bad in here anyway once you

  • walk through reception it's sad to go into the press conference area where you

  • actually get to see where they do all their press conferences once again I

  • must have a really bad smell cos no one sitting next to me you get put through a

  • video presentation and the tour guide tells you a lot about Rangers Football

  • Club you even get a chance to go up on the stage and have your picture taken

  • and the tour guide actually offered to take my picture on the stage

  • as a shame well at least you tried so after you've had your picture taken up

  • in the press conference area it's time to go up a flight of stairs and you'll

  • notice that the inside of this place is very ornately decorated this is the Blue

  • Room and there's a lot of historical significance in this Blue Room which the

  • tour guide tells you a lot of bounce and it's kind of interesting to learn about

  • the history of Rangers because I didn't actually know all that much and wow

  • that's actually cool mural if you hang around till the end there's plenty of

  • cool photo opportunities this is the manager's office you'll notice that

  • everything is kept very traditional which I kind of like because it actually

  • shows off the history of the club right time to walk up a few flights of stairs

  • and into the directors box where you get your first view of the pitch and this

  • place really is as big as you see on the TV

  • the tour guide tells you a lot about the stadium what goes on here on a match day

  • etc and it's cool to take photos out here as well so you get led into one of

  • the corporate hospitality lounges and it's very Scottish Lee decorated with

  • red and blue and tartan I quite like that it's got character

  • once you're walking through the corridors you'll notice a lot of

  • historical caps the Scottish are very proud of their caps and it's kind of

  • cool to see some of these on the walls hey it's Andy Gorham man he was a hell

  • of a player you let into the trophy room and there is a lot of silverware here

  • these guys have seriously want a lot of stuff and you get to learn a lot about

  • what Rangers have won whether you believe that they're the world's most

  • successful football club or not one thing's for sure they've worn a lot of

  • stuff and it's cool to see check out that thing of beauty in the

  • middle there hey it's Gaza spike well not his actual bike he made it infamous

  • you could probably guess the reasons why it's time to go down the stairs and at

  • this point I think the fans suspect that something's up

  • this is the home teams dressing room whereby it's a traditionally decorated

  • dressing room full of wooden cladding they've got cardboard cutouts instead of

  • shirts but overall it provides you some great photo opportunities there's also

  • the bathrooms which are also traditionally decorated in the away

  • teams changing room as well so yeah that's kind of cool but no stadium toys

  • complete without a tunnel walk there's great photo opportunities here but my

  • advice is to wait for everyone to clear out and then take your pictures here

  • because there's some pretty cool things to take pictures of but once you're done

  • taking the pictures it's time to walk through the tunnel in amongst some music

  • the view of the stadium here at ground level is actually quite good and I

  • highly recommend that you take lots of pictures here guys because there's a lot

  • to take pictures of whether it's the stands the dugouts or the tunnel

  • entrance you won't be short on things to take pictures of and if you get bored

  • obviously you can sit in a seat if you want to but overall guys this is

  • actually quite a pretty stadium and once you've taken your pictures and stuff

  • that's basically the end of your tour so you disappear back down the tunnel and

  • when you go if you want some unobstructed photo opportunities wait

  • for everyone else to clear out before taking it yourself okay where do I begin

  • well firstly nobody wanted to stand next to me that's how much these two sets of

  • fans don't particularly like each other but did they want to stab me in the face

  • well if they did they didn't actually so even though I got a few death stares to

  • fly that other than that it wasn't that bad and at the end of the tour I ended

  • up talking to our tour guide who was actually a very reasonable guy he he

  • explained that even though both sets of fans generally hate each other there is

  • that mutual respect so that's always good to know

  • right it's time to hop in the car and head across the city to the other

  • Stadium

  • Celtic Park the home of the Celtic Football Club this stadium is the

  • largest football ground in the country of Scotland and is sometimes referred to

  • as Park head or paradise no seriously they printed on the side of the stadium

  • and around the ground you'll see statues of their heroes brother wall freed the

  • great jocks Dean and arguably their greatest ever captain mr. Billy McNeill

  • but am I going to get similar treatments here at Celtic Park santak Park Rangers

  • shirt the tour actually begins inside the club reception which is here on this

  • side of the building and for some reason they're leading me all on my own down

  • the side of the building um is this normal

  • am I going to get shot around the back now as it turns out this is a perfectly

  • normal part of the tour and one thing that was abundantly clear everyone was

  • super nice they all shook my hand and welcomed me to Celtic Park and this guy

  • right here I am pretty sure that he rumbled me straight off the bat I am

  • fairly certain that he figured out that I wasn't actually a Rangers fan but even

  • if he did or he didn't he was incredibly nice to make this is my tour guide David

  • and once again he was also very very nice to me lots of smiles very polite

  • and you noticed that as soon as you come here to sonic pop you're given a warm

  • welcome by literally everybody which is fantastic the tour actually begins here

  • at one of the corporate hospitality lounges but after you've had a quick

  • bite to eat etc is now time to stop the tour

  • before me the treble run-up buddy with a double treble the hole now at this point

  • I'm pretty sure he's doing this just to shame me but you know what I found the

  • funny side of it and the funny thing is they all actually laughed and accorded

  • me for wearing a ranger shirt to be honest they all saw the funny side of it

  • and I'm actually in shock at this point as to how cool everyone is about this

  • all the fans didn't mind that I was there and they actually wanted to stand

  • next to me here's the boardroom whereby you've got the busts of brother Wilfred

  • and Jacques Steen this is where they conduct their business but one of the

  • interesting things about this particular boardroom is the trophy cabinet you get

  • to learn a lot about some of the trophies especially here I learnt a lot

  • from this but David Ashley gave a rousing speech about how each other I

  • totally bought into what he was saying football is not about racism

  • it's not about secularism we're here to enjoy the game and not hate on each

  • other and even though I got ripped quite a lot it was all in good fun it's

  • interesting to see some of the accolades that they've worn particularly the

  • medals of their best players including this man mr. Billy McNeill and speaking

  • of Billy McNeill you get a fantastic talk about the 1967 Elizabeth Lions

  • arguably their greatest ever team captained by mr. McNeill and you get to

  • learn about some of the greatest place to ever dawned poops

  • but what's the tox ended you then get led towards the home teams dressing room

  • and check out the mules on the walls that's actually kind of cool when you

  • enter the home team's dressing group it's actually kind of nice

  • these guys actually have the shirts on this place and we've got some cool photo

  • opportunities and they don't mind you actually picking up the shirts and

  • having your photos taken with the butchers I thought was actually carrying

  • of cool the shirt and that looks familiar but you get to learn a lot

  • about what happens on a match day here and even the fact that famous people

  • when they do this tour they actually signed the inside of the lockers which I

  • found really really interesting check out the signatures I don't know

  • who they are but yeah cool once again the Celtic fans know how to

  • have a bit of a laugh and a joke to be honest I actually enjoyed my time

  • here it wasn't at all threatening there was no animosity and everyone was up for

  • a bit of a laugh but now it's time to walk down the corridors towards the

  • place tunnel and this is the point where he picks somebody to lead the team out

  • onto the field guess who that was after a bit of Rangers shaming all in good fun

  • of course I actually led all these Celtic fans down the tunnel towards the

  • field wish they all saw the funny side of

  • I thought you were gonna play the other one the one that I hate so much but you

  • get a fantastic view of the stadium from here guys and even though it's getting

  • dark and you've got the grass lights on you can still see most of the stadium it

  • was actually kind of cool there's plenty of photo opportunities open around here

  • including in the dugout seats they even have one of those Instagram selfie

  • boards which I totally did and yeah that's the one I saw on Twitter and you

  • get to spend some time taking in the sights and taking lots of pictures and

  • videos if you want to this stadium is actually pretty pretty big and it

  • certainly looks like the size that you see when you're watching the games on TV

  • but after you've taken your photos and videos it's time to disappear back down

  • the tunnel and up a flight of stairs towards the directors bit now you get

  • some fantastic views of the stadium from up here and you get to learn a lot about

  • some of the people who actually come to the games here for example this seat

  • belongs to Billy Connolly and this seat belongs to Sir Rod Stewart's I thought

  • that was actually kind of interesting now at this point of the talk I'd like

  • to talk about our tour guide David he was probably the best tour guide

  • that I've ever come across when doing these Stadium tours very knowledgeable

  • about his club very passionate and also very educational even though I got her a

  • ribbing for wearing a ranger shirt it was all in good fun and we could have a

  • laugh in a joke there was no ounce of animosity here so

  • if you do get David as your tour guide consider yourselves very very lucky and

  • if your Celtic Football Club seriously give this man a pay rise he certainly

  • deserves it once you get a final talk from your tour guide everyone's still

  • having a laugh and a joke

  • so taking your last views of the stadium guys because this is pretty much the end

  • of the tour what the stairs you go and lots of handshakes from the Celtic staff

  • before they give you some free swag overall I was made to feel very very

  • welcome here and I'm highly grateful of that if you do want to do a bit of

  • shopping the Celtic superstore is literally across the way there so you

  • can actually buy quite a lot of stuff and at the end of the tour I actually

  • revealed to both tour guides then I'm actually not arranges for Celtic fan

  • future in here I'm obviously back home here in sunny

  • languages trying to edit this video for you guys

  • and there's something I've got to get off my chest

  • both Rangers and Celtic were very very nice to me I concluded though

  • the hatred isn't real and it's grossly exaggerated but then I went to the car

  • and turned my phone back on my phone had little like a Christmas tree

  • and it turns out that pictures of me doing these tours had circulated on the

  • Internet to the point where by the local newspapers were actually reporting this

  • as news man in Celtic top does Rangers tour than physics Parkhead in a light

  • blues jersey you see I don't even deem that to be news as you could tell from

  • my channel I actually do this a lot in my man Chester United shirt and in all

  • honesty nobody really bats an eyelid not even at Liverpool so the fact that this

  • made the newspapers I'm actually quite astonished Rangers and Celtic mystery

  • solved as YouTube star visits ground in rivals tops why Thank You Daily Record

  • but I'm honestly not a YouTube star I barely have any subscribers if you want

  • to help me out subscribe of course but to be honest nobody really watches my

  • video so I'm surprised you've come out with that but thank you very much for

  • the compliment but then I started to take a closer look at some of the

  • comments some of them accuse me of being some kind of attention-seeking whore

  • I'm not and I've just explained the reasons why some of them think that I

  • was some kind of confused Chinese tourist which I could understand where

  • you'd get that from and I even got a handful of compliments so yeah thank you

  • very much for that very kind of you but I'm sorry to report that most of the

  • comments were overwhelmingly negative people reacted really badly to me

  • turning up to a stadium in a different colored shirt let's make one thing very

  • very clear I honestly don't care what abuse you throw at me I died a long time

  • ago so whatever you say doesn't really matter in the grander scheme of things

  • you see this is the problem with football this unmitigated level of

  • hatred and we can't complain about racism when we're coming out with

  • comments like this and we also can't complain about hooliganism when people

  • want me dead for wearing a different colored shirts

  • think about that for a second you want somebody to die because they're wearing

  • a different colored t-shirt does that not seem a little bit overblown to you

  • football is not about racism football is not about secularism football isn't

  • about any form of discrimination at all what it is about is what's on the field

  • that's it that's all it should be about don't buy into all of this negative
