Celtic secured victory in a must win game against St Johnstone, brushing them aside three goals to one, but Carl Starfelt left supporters fuming.
The Swedish defender was blamed for the goal Celtic conceded that gave the hosts some hope of a comeback, with Christopher Kane’s header halving the deficit at the time.
Do you want CCV permanently at Celtic?
Thankfully for the Swede, Nir Bitton put the game to bed and ensured the three points returned to Celtic Park.
Despite the vital win to make sure they didn’t fall further behind the league leaders, the fans weren’t all happy on social media. They took to Twitter to make their feelings known on Starfelt’s performance.
How the Celtic fans reacted over Starfelt’s performance
“Just release Starfelt. Dreadful player. Will never be good enough.” @Celticfan677
“Starfelt again! Dreadful, lazy, complacent second half performance. Who do these players think they are to go out and put in a 2nd half 23 minutes like that?” @BrendanOgle2
“Still some fans will think Starfelt is good enough.” @Matt57412592
“Starfelt passes the ball away in a dangerous area then doesn’t bother his arse to get back to cover his own mistake.” @AuldManRusty
“Starfelt again! Get him replaced in the window!” @bearliam92
“Seen it coming, Starfelt is a nightmare.” @Frederi00875507
Clearly a moment to forget for the centre half who left the fans annoyed. With injuries ravaging the Celtic side, reinforcements are a must in the January transfer window, with the supporters evidently desperate for a defender.
Unfortunately for Celtic, Rangers also won today, meaning the gap they closed to three points at the top of the table has been stretched back to six immediately. Another game without a slip up from the defending champions makes a Celtic title charge less likely.
