One-time Celtic goalkeeper Artur Boruc travelled to see his former club in action last night, but he wasn’t in Sweden to watch the Hoops defeat AIK 4-1.
Instead, he was in Glasgow at the home of their arch-rivals Rangers to lend his support to former employers Legia Warsaw in their Europa League play-off tie, as reported by Football Scotland, and an image of the 39-year-old at the game was posted on Twitter by @CelticBible.

The Poland international played with the Hoops for five years, making 192 appearances for the club and winning three league titles, two Scottish League Cups and one Scottish Cup.
Boruc, who was nicknamed the ‘Holy Goalie’ at Celtic, drew ire from some Rangers supporters in 2006 for blessing himself by making a sign of the cross after a penalty save at Ibrox, as reported by The Guardian.
In 2008, he wore a T-shirt with the message ‘God bless the Pope’ on the pitch after a derby win over Rangers, an incident that was subsequently referred to the SPL, according to BBC.
These Celtic fans on Twitter very much enjoyed seeing Boruc among the away fans at Ibrox last night:
We had the holy father and the holy goalie at their pitch the night
