Celtic fans on Twitter have been responding to the latest news concerning Filip Benkovic. 

This comes after Celtic news Twitter account @aboutceltic shared a post on their page relaying news originally published in an article from the Daily Mail.

Which club did Brown join Celtic from?

The article claims that the Leicester City defender will join Belgian side OH Leuven on loan until the end of the season, despite John Kennedy recently revealing Celtic’s interest in signing the defender.

This post then gathered a lot of replies from Celtic fans who were quick to share their thoughts on this latest news.

So, what did these Celtic fans think about this transfer news on Benkovic?

Board at it again absolute joke, they need to get out the club asap same every window…” 

@Neild118

“what an embarrassment we are” 

@AlbaRepublic__

“Humiliating” 

@sfceltic86

“Our ability to get decent players in is embarrassing” 

@joem1967_

“We’re poor at completing transfers” 

@Aidencorr7

“When you have a clown like Lennon in charge , even the below average players want to play elsewhere.” 

@bhoysviews

Celtic signed the 23-year-old on a loan deal back in August 2018 from Leicester. Before returning to the English club in June 2019, the defender made 27 appearances for Celtic in which he managed to score two goals and provide one assist along the way (per Transfermarkt).

Are you disappointed by this news?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Looking at the replies to this post, it’s clear that these Hoops fans aren’t happy by the fact that they may well have lost out on signing Benkovic, especially with Kennedy publicly confirming the club’s interest in him, which, in our view, will only rub salt into the wounds now if his proposed move to Belgium takes place.
