A number of Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to criticise the performance of central defender Carl Starfelt against Rangers on Sunday.

Celtic head into half-time drawing 0-0 in their derby clash with Rangers in the Scottish Premiership, with Ange Postecoglou experiencing the for the first time. Odsonne Edouard’s close-range chance was the only attacking moment of note for the Australian’s side, as the Frenchman missed the target from inside the six-yard box with his right foot.

The Hoops came into the game above Rangers in the table on goal difference, with both sides having won two and lost one of their opening three matches of the campaign in the league.

Despite the game still being level, plenty of Celtic fans have taken to to comment on Starfelt’s performance as they have been far from impressed by what they have seen from the Sweden international today.

The 6 foot 1 defender, valued at £2.7m by Transfermarkt, won just 50% of his aerial duels and lost possession five times in the first-half, as per SofaScore.

What have Celtic fans made of Starfelt?

Starfelt needs to go out in the second-half and produce an excellent showing to prove these fans wrong and show that he is capable of being a valuable asset for the club.

Hopefully, the Hoops as a team will also be able to turn in a strong display to ensure that they go on and win this match and return with the three points.
