Image for Celtic: Many fans rip into Starfelt’s performance

A lot of fans have slammed Carl Starfelt’s performance against AZ Alkmaar.

The Swedish centre back is a new signing in the era but he has not done anything to win over the fans during the club’s second leg match against AZ Alkmaar.

Will miss this season?





Starfelt had a performance to forget as he netted an own goal in the first half which put the Dutch side ahead on the evening, this is despite Celtic taking the lead inside five minutes through new signing Kyogo Furuhashi.

Many fans have ripped into Starfelt following his performance.

What have these fans been saying?

Welsh and Starfelt are terrible. Getting done here big time, and this liability is the best defender we could attract. We’re no playing average SPL teams now, strap in”


Typical us, starfelt has been a nightmare since he’s came in, no better than what was there”


Get him out the club please”


Starfelt is beyond hopeless”


Defence is a shambles. Starfelt frighteningly poor!!!!”


Starfelt is shocking”


Starfelt – was giving him the benefit of the doubt but, no way is the guy worth £4M”


It’s not just the own goal from Starfelt which has angered fans since his signing, he made two poor attempts to win the ball during the club’s opening day defeat against Hearts and that sort of form appears to have carried into the Europa League.

The own goal that Starfelt scored in the first half appeared to be extremely difficult to pull off, but the 25-year old managed to guide the ball past Hart, which seemingly may have tipped a lot of fans over the edge in terms of their thoughts on him.

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

Celtic splashed out £4.5 million on Starfelt this summer, the second most money they’ve paid for a player so far this transfer window, but it appears that some fans may have already had enough of their new Swedish centre back.
