A Celtic supporter has duped pop star Boy George into tweeting support for former Rangers owner Craig Whyte.

The former Culture Club lead singer quote-tweeted a message in response when asked for “good luck” from Celtic fan Michael Caven.

Caven wrote: “Goerge any chance of good luck to my uncle Criag he has to stay strong in the coming weeks Cheers Goerge.”

In the tweet he included a picture of Whyte in a Rangers scarf.

Boy George then responded: “Gotta love your uncle Craig! We wish him well!! :)”

Whyte faces charges of fraud regarding his takeover at Rangers. Earlier this week a trial date was provisionally set for April next year.
