Fans of Celtic have taken to Twitter to criticise the performance of the Hoops’ left-back, Diego Laxalt, in the Bhoys’ Scottish last-16 fixture on Sunday.

Since joining Celtic on a season-long loan deal from AC Milan last October, Laxalt has been in rather uninspiring form over his 17 Scottish Premiership appearances for Kennedy’ side, averaging a WhoScored match rating of 6.82 – ranking the defender as the club’s 18th-best performer in the Scottish top flight.

Celtic fans can you get 8/8 on this quiz on forgotten players. First up, who is this?

And, after Kennedy opted to start Laxalt against Rangers in the Scottish Cup last-16 fixture on Sunday, fans of Celtic appeared far from happy with the performance of the 28-year-old, with many taking to Twitter to vent their anger at the display of the AC Milan loanee.

Should Celtic look to make Laxalt's loan a permanent move this summer?

Yes

Yes

No

No

So, what exactly did these Celtic fans have to say about Diego Laxalt’s performance?

“You forgot about Laxalt, the in 20+ years.”

@swhyte1

“I don’t think Taylor is the best , but Jesus, Laxalt just literally can’t defend its madness.”

@Darmso_

“Just tell Laxalt to head straight to airport.”

@bazza2774

“Laxalt and Kenny are rotten, man.”

@CraigBarrett_

“Subbed at half time for Greg Taylor, Laxalt may as well hang up his boots and become a full-time Fortnite streamer.”

@Liam98__

“May Laxalt never wear a Celtic jersey again…”

@KarlGleeson

All in all, it would appear these Celtic fans feel that Laxalt is nowhere near good enough for their club, and, considering the left-back was hooked at half time against Rangers, as well the fact he has hardly been in show-stopping form since arriving at Parkhead last year, it is not difficult to understand why.
