The rivalry between football clubs Rangers and Celtic goes past typical name calling and dives into violence, racial slurs and pure hatred.

The rivalry between Glasgow's "Old Firm" sides is the most famous in world football. It's the game's flagship loathing, proof of the power of the sport to inspire profound levels of tribal loyalty and a near-Pavlovian revulsion at anything to do with a rival. We examine the situation and try to get a handle on the political, religious, and national identity clashes that have shaped the rivalry, speak to fanzine editors on both sides of the divide and travel with the Bhoys' away support to a match at Tannadice.

I am from France and I must say the rangers fans come off a lot more disrespectful. Celtic fans want to sing and mourn their unfortunate history whereas Rangers fans seek to rub salt in the wounds of that history. SCUMBAGS

You know I don't get the rivalry between Catholics and Protestants. Because (at least for me) at the end of the day I can't tell the fuckin difference between the goddamn religions. And I am all for loving the game, but makin it about religion is just fuckin stupid.

Being an American I thought people are crazy about sports teams here, this takes the cake. Although this I think is much more of social/cultural/political rivalry than the actual Football. Please correct me if Im wrong.
