Glasgow has always had a Catholic/Protestant divide, traditionally Celtic are associated with the Catholic side, Rangers with the Protestant.
Protestants hold in high regard King William of Orange. Therefore to a Celtic fan, they may be "Orange Bastards."(or basturts to use the local dialect).
Add the word "Dirty" to the beginning of the phrase and you have, "Dirty Orange Bastard" the initials of which form "DOB", which is where the widely-used Glasgow phrase "Dobber" originates from. Which, yes, means that if you're a dirty Rangers fan, and you call someone a dobber, you're slagging yourself. Up ye, and mon the hoops!
Check the nick of this dobber!

Dobbers, a powerful phychoactive drug, has many effects, which include, but are not limited to: Uncontrollable fits of laughter, general coordination loss; especially with balance, and increased appreciation of Starbucks, vision problems (may include walls not appearing, which can lead to collisions), and general giddiness. A Dobbers overdose can occur, and the symptons include laughter which reduces the victim to tears, and collapse onto the floor, writhing hysterically.
