Despite leaving Glasgow Rangers 12 years ago AC Milan captain Gennaro Gattuso last night retained his honorary Glaswegian status by headbutting Joe Jordan after their Champions League clash with Tottenham Hotspur.

Gattuso clashed with Tottenham coach Jordan after his side were beaten 1-0 in the first leg of their last 16 match.

“It warms your heart, it really does.” said Rangers season ticket holder Donald Matthews.

“I’ve said it all along, but this proves it.  You can take the boy out of Glasgow, but you can’t take the Glasgow out of the boy.”

“So what if he hasn’t lived in Glasgow for a dozen years, the way he leaned into Jordan there was classic weegie. It wouldn’t have looked out of place in the Gorbals.”

A spokesperson explained that not eveyone gets to retain honorary Glaswegian status, with many not receiving it whilst remaining in the city.

“Take James Beattie for example, he was only here for a while but remained a soft southern shite the entire time he lived in Glasgow.”

“But not Gattuso. He was only here for a couple of years, but in that time he demonstrated the short fuse and violent inclinations that endeared him to thousands of Rangers fans, and last night he showed he’s still got it.”

“You might expect after years away from the city for those tendencies to fade, but not with Gennaro, he’s still clearly as violently unhinged as he was the last time he turned out at Ibrox.”

“It’s a shame they were pulled apart actually, as Joe Jordan is from North Lanarkshire, so that scrap would have really been worth watching.”
