Artur Boruc, was worshiped by Celtic fans and mostly hated by Rangers fans – and he admits he was up for the abuse off of them.

The Holy Goalie, quickly became a cult hero at Celtic Park, who liked his style of winding up the Rangers fans and became quickly hated at Ibrox.

Boruc said:  “It’s definitely something more than the usual.

“When you get out on to the pitch, you feel that the opposing supporters hate you, but the match day itself was relatively calm.

“It is known that there was a bit more adrenaline due to the fact that there are a lot of fans in Glasgow. 

“You could see the middle finger pointing towards me or hear some vulgar cries. It made you want to live, that life became more colourful.

“To be honest, such great tension is felt only two or three days before the match. It is known, however, that every day you have to live side by side and it does not cause major problems.

“I have the impression that the times when it was really dangerous are over, but for sure the fans sometimes bite each other.”

He supposedly incited violence from merely blessing himself – and is still baffled on the reaction.

He said: “I’ve always done it before every match and I still do it. It wasn’t like I came up with it specifically for the Rangers match. However, I knew that the fans of this team are very annoyed.

“As far as I know, there was no warning from the prosecutor’s office.

“Yes, proceedings against me may have been initiated, even a parliamentary meeting on this matter was held.

“But I didn’t have any major troubles because of my behaviour.”
