Celtic fans have been reacting to the performance of Nir Bitton during their game against Hibs in the Scottish Premiership.

Ange Postecoglou’s men have been on something on a roll domestically, having not lost a game since September, and they looked to continue that run on against a Hibs side who have had the opposite luck when it comes to form, having lost their last three games on the bounce.

Celtic would eventually win the game having raced into a 3-0 lead, however it wasn’t totally smooth sailing for the Hoops, as according to some people online, there were some players who weren’t exactly pulling their own weight.

One such player was Bitton, the midfielder was brought on just before the half to replace Tom Rogic, but didn’t appear to put on the best of performances in the second half, with plenty of fans on hand to slam his display:

“Lost all momentum when Bitton came on”

“Bitton isn’t the answer to any question these days”
“Bitton is invisible as per”
“100% Bitton wrong choice to bring on but hope Rogic injury not serious”
“Bitton is a myth. He offers nothing. He’s just there. Making up the numbers. Waste of a jersey.”
“Taking off twinkle toes Rogic for the Father Stone of football Bitton has killed Celtic’s rhythm.”

Looks like according to those fans, he didn’t do his chances of starting the next game much good, let’s see if he can make up for it in training.
