Celtic: Fans destroy Jonjoe Kenny

Image for Celtic: Fans destroy Jonjoe Kenny

Lots of Celtic fans have been fuming at the performance of Everton loanee Jonjoe Kenny recently.

In the Hoops’ recent win over St. Johnstone in the Premiership, Kenny had started for John Kennedy’s men in a right-back role (as per WhoScored).

Kenny had arrived at Parkhead on loan from Everton in the January window and since joining, the Englishman has made 13 Premiership appearances for the Hoops. He has picked up a couple of assists as well, having failed to become a regular for Everton in the campaign (as per Transfermarkt).

Has Kenny been Celtic's worst signing this season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Kenny’s performance against St. Johnstone though, drew the attention of many angry Celtic fans. They took to Twitter and made their annoyance clear about him.

What did Celtic fans make of Kenny’s performance?

“Not only is Jonjoe Kenny the worst RB I’ve ever seen at Celtic, but I’m struggling to think of a worse player in my lifetime.. £10m apparently though cause he’s a premier league player.”

During his time at Parkhead, Kenny hasn’t always picked up good ratings on a consistent basis for the Bhoys. In the recent defeat to Rangers, he picked up a lowly rating of only 6.15, having failed to impress against Aberdeen as well (As per WhoScored).

More so, only three Celtic regulars have been dribbled past more often than Kenny, which shows a lack of defensive awareness too.

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

Because of the rather unreliable performances, perhaps Celtic would be taking a big risk if they try to sign the Englishman permanently. So they should consider looking at other right-back options soon.
