Many Celtic supporters have flocked to social media in order to respond to a Twitter post from journalist Anthony Joseph.
The Hoops were knocked out of the Scottish League Cup at the weekend, courtesy of Ross County who ran out 2-0 winners (as per BBC Sport).
Ross Stewart and Alex Iacovitti’s goals ended Celtic’s run of 35 consecutive cup wins, subsequently increasing the pressure on Neil Lennon.
The disappointing result led to a number of supporters gathering outside Celtic Park post-match to put across their frustrations and the club have described what occurred in Glasgow as ‘violent scenes‘.
The statement released by the club emphasised the point that it had only been a small number of fans involved but the players and management team required an escort to leave the stadium which in their view was ‘simply unacceptable‘.
Following these events, Joseph published a tweet in which he described the actions of one Celtic supporter outside the club’s Lennoxtown training ground.
How have these Celtic supporters responded to the journalist’s Twitter post?
Having a pop at a fan caring that much about his team that he gets up n goes to the training ground to peacefully tell the players their performances arent good enough..someone needs to check on you

Good on him. The club statement last night is basically trying to deflect the blame onto the fans.

Would you like to see Neil Lennon sacked immediately?
Good on them. Some showing that they care. Unlike anyone at Celtic park or Lennoxtown just now

It’s clear from the above responses that many of these Celtic supporters took no issue with this particular supporter making his feelings known outside of the training ground.
Neil Lennon’s side have won just two of their last ten fixtures, add to that they are unable to progress from their UEFA Europa League group and that they trail their Old Firm rivals by a significant distance (as per BBC Sport) and you can understand the discontent amongst some supporters.
