Joe Warrall, a former Ibrox player, has spoken out about the vitriol he STILL receives from Gers supporters for making a massive error against Celtic years ago.

Warrall didn’t shine throughout the Glasgow derbies and wasn’t up to the task.

Joe adds that the hatred he experienced from his followers at the time interfered with his mental health and mentions Martyn Waghorn as another former Ibrox player who felt the heat.

“I still get messages now on social media whenever I post anything from Rangers fans genuinely calling me every name under the sun,” he told former BBC Radio Nottingham presenter Robin Chipperfield.

“Kilmarnock fans thank me! Genuinely, I loved my time there. Rangers fans are fantastic but they think they have a divine right to hammer and call blind any player who has ever had a bad game for Rangers.

“Martyn Waghorn, it really messed his head up and he’s a great player. It definitely took a toll, not on my mental health – I’m earning thousands of pounds a week playing football.

“It’s part and parcel. Fans pay their money and if you underperform you deserve pelters for giving the ball away against Kilmarnock.

“I was 21 and trying to learn my trade, play under Gerrard, play in front of 50,000 at Ibrox and 60,000 at Parkhead.

Warrall also talks about the infamous video where he cursed Celtic; the clip going viral online.

“I 100 percent know I came back a better player and a better leader. I got caught on video saying ‘F Celtic’ after they won the league.

“It was really stupid of me. They were miles better than us but the video went viral.”

Warrall played in Glasgow during a period in which Celtic were producing fantastic football. It took a huge collapse and a global epidemic to bring the Celtic juggernaut to a halt.

It’s insane that he still gets yelled at for his derby blunders. Football fans may be tough, but the vitriol people endure online is insane.

People sitting in their own homes throwing mud to make themselves feel better and attract attention. It’s a little pitiful.
