Hibee Jane Park winds up Celtic fans in Dubai as team score late draw

Edinburgh ‘teen millionaire’ Jane Park was one of a few Hibs fans able to watch the team take on Celtic last night in a pub.

After jetting off to Dubai to escape Scotland’s coronavirus lockdown, Hibee Jane Park went to an Irish bar in the country on Monday to watch the game.

And the 25-year-old, who become the country’s youngest Euromillions winner at 17, was delighted after Kevin Nesbit brought the team to a late draw, scoring the equaliser in the 91st minute.

The influencer took to Instagram to share her delight at the result, which denied Celtic of three points in the league.

She later took to Instagram to taunt Celtic fans, revealing she was actually watching the game in an Irish bar.

In a video posted on social media, she panned the camera to a Hoops fan who had his hands over his face, asking “are you alright?” as she laughed.

She earlier branded the squad a “f****** shambles” after 13 players as well as manager Neil Lennon were forced into isolation when a player tested positive.

Last night’s match had caused controversy, with Hibs told they would face consequences if they refused to play the match.

The club had sought reassurances about how their players and staff would be protected, asking for a second round of “on the day” testing, which the SPFL refused.

But Park’s own trip to Dubai has left some unhappy, with many questioning whether she broke travel rules in order to flee lockdown.

Complaining about her decision on social media, one user wrote: “Call this unthoughtful, idiots travelling abroad and then complaining about lockdowns. You lot are part the problem with this virus being all over the planet, then flaunting it all over the internet.

“All these people running off to Dubai then coming back and complaining about lockdown. Keep your germs and yourself in Dubai.”

But Jane quickly defended herself, pointing out that unlike Celtic, she had no plans to return immediately.

She wrote: “What you talking about, I won’t be returning to the UK so how I will I make an impact?

“You were actually allowed to do it when I was leaving the country and re-entering.

There wasn’t any essential travel you were freely allowed. Where as now it’s essential traveling so I won’t need to come back. As the UK nor yourself are essential to me. So off you pop big man.”
