Celtic, Rangers Show Rare Sign of Unity, Visit Fans of Other Team in Hospital

Old Firm is one of the most hostile and fierce derbies on the planet. 

Before Rangers' recent financial downturn, the two sides dominated the Scottish Premiership for decades in a rivalry that's divided Glasgow by neighbourhood and religion. 

But both sides recently visited Yorkhill Hospital in order to visit sick children, a fairly normal practice by football clubs, but the images that emerged show a sign of unity of sorts between the clubs. 

Rangers players posing with happy Celtic fans and vice versa? 

It must be Christmastime, but this was a wonderful display nonetheless.
