How Twitter reacted to the Rangers – Little Mix Christmas battle

| 21.12.2016

The race for the Christmas number 1 spot has long caught the imagination and this year is no different. However, few of us could have predicted how the battle lines would be drawn between fans of Rangers and Little Mix. 

In fact, the whole bust-up has produced one of the most hilarious Twitter spats you’ll ever see.

In case you’ve missed it, here’s a bit of background information:

  • Girl band Little Mix are bidding for a festive number one with their song Touch. However, on the other side of the fence, fans of the Ladbrokes Premiership heavyweights are trying to get the Dave Clark Five smash hit Glad All Over to the top of the tree, in honour of striker Joe Garner.

This is how things currently stand. It’s fair to say the Gers are having the best of it right now.

Now you’re up to speed, check out the best of the reaction, starting with some well-deserved appreciation…

Yep, Rangers v Little Mix. It’s a thing.

Ha, remember Directioners v Gabby Agbonlahor? We think Gers v Mixers has probably topped it.

Wrong song mate but we get the sentiment.

Or we can do this the other way round?

In case you’re unaware, ‘pump’ is slang north of the border. And no, it doesn’t mean what you think it does.

You’ve got some work to do, Mixers.

Err, what?

We helped settle this important debate.

And these were some of the responses…

Whose side are you on?
