Gordon Strachan hoped for Matt O'Riley 'get it up ye' Rangers troll after sweary Celtic moment

Gordon Strachan has joked he hoped to hear even more profanity from Matt O'Riley after Celtic's win over Rangers.

The midfielder scored the opener in their 2-1 victory at Parkhead before winning and then missing a penalty in the second-half. The Denmark international was gutted over his spot-kick miss and branded it "s***" during a post-match interview with Sky Sports. And Strachan loved seeing the personality shine through.

The former Hoops manager actually revealed he wanted to hear more as he and the missus sat watching after the win and he joked a "get it up ye" would have sufficed.

Speaking at the club's Player of the Year awards do at the Hydro, Strachan said: “I’m absolutely fantastic after yesterday. I’ve got to say right away to the players, Brendan and Gavin - what a fantastic performance from you guys, it really was terrific. To play that well under pressure. You just want to win the game but to play that well was fantastic.

“But I actually thought the highlight of the day was Matt O’Riley’s interview.

"To get balls and s*** in an interview was some going. I was watching with Mrs Strachan. We love James Forrest and he was fantastic but we didn’t really want to listen to James - we wanted Matt to get the mic back again and I was hoping for a ‘get it up ye’ or ‘f***’ or something. So well done Matt."
