Rangers-mad Gordon Reid fires cheeky Celtic dig after landing Australian Open title

GORDON REID has fired a cheeky dig at Celtic after winning his ninth consecutive grand slam title at the Australian Open.

Reid and partner Alfie Hewett defeated Argentina’s Gustavo Fernandez and Shingo Kunieda of Japan 6-2 4-6 (10-7) in the final of the wheelchair men’s doubles at Melbourne Park.

Their success meant they broke the tie they held with Martina Navratilova and Pam Shriver, who won eight consecutive women’s doubles titles between Wimbledon in 1983 and the French Open in 1985.

Hewett and Reid have not been beaten in doubles at a slam since Wimbledon in 2019, winning back-to-back calendar Grand Slams.

Speaking after the win, Reid joked about Celtic slipping up at the final hurdle last season in their quest for ten Scottish Premiership titles in a row.

"Ten in a row is not for everybody but hopefully we can get there (smiling)," he said.

“These kind of records, I think we always take them with a pinch of salt because it’s a little bit different for us to win a grand slam title than it may be for people in the other draw.

“It’s always nice to hear them but, at the same time, I think we just focus on what we’re doing and we’re just enjoying each one as it comes. Just trying to improve and try and push our partnership forward and try and come back better in the next one.”
