Best Answer

Long story, but basically Ranger's fans have long been Protestantism and the Union with Britain, whereas Celtic fans have always been Irish/ Scots of Irish decent and or Catholics. And there is a long running rivalry between Protestants and Catholics.

The rivalry between the sets of fans is a reflection of the political difficulties in Northern Ireland, where Rangers' fans are mainly Unionists and Protestant, whereas Celtic Fans are mainly Republicans and Catholic. Sectarianism is the main problem, which is quite strong in Scotland.
