Celtic fans on Twitter have been sharing their criticism for Hoops defender Carl Starfelt and his performance for the Parkhead club during their recent 4-3 defeat against Real Betis in the Europa League. 

A seven-goal thriller in Spain ultimately led to Ange Postecoglou’s side walk away with a defeat despite being 2-0 up in the first half.

“I am thinking if the manager thinks Starfelt is better than Walsh then he needs to go. Starfelt has shown since his arrival that he is not up to the job”

@grumpo5

“Jullien on crutches is better than starfelt”

@RyanGlen_67

“Starfelt is a horrendously bad player hasn’t even shown a glimpse of any talent since he came in.”

@daviemac79

“Amateur defending again Celtic. Unfortunately for me starfelt isn’t good enough”

@StevenB61537206

“Get starfelt out the club”

@SeanWisdom10

Looking at this group of tweets from this group of Celtic fans, it seems as though they were not impressed with Starfelt’s display against Betis, with some saying how unimpressed they’ve been with the defender since he joined the club back in the recent summer transfer window.

Have you been disappointed with Starfelt so far?

Yes

No

No

Taking into account how The Scotsman gave the defender an overall match rating of 5/10 for his display against the Spanish club, saying that he “didn’t look comfortable on occasion and his lack of communication led to the set-piece for Betis’ fourth,” it’s easy to see why these fans on Twitter were not happy.

Moving forward, it seems as though the 26-year-old has a lot of work to do if he wants to convince these fans he’s capable of paying for the club on a consistent basis.
