Celtic fans will be relieved after the Hoops battled past Motherwell to secure a 1-0 at Parkhead on Sunday afternoon.
Tom Rogic’s goal in first half stoppage time was all that separated the sides at the final whistle. The win was vital to Ange Postecoglou’s side as they managed to keep pace with their Glasgow rivals, who also won today.
Is Albian Ajeti good enough for Celtic?
There’s not many worse feelings for a player than being subbed on in a game before ultimately being taken off. Alas, that’s what happened for Celtic’s Mikey Johnston, with many Hoops fans going in hard on the 22-year-old winger, who one supporter even called “useless”.
What these Celtic fans said
“Time Johnston moved on from Celtic. Another inept performance.” @manky_bianchi
“Short shrift for the brickie today.” @ColinRossWilson
“Imagine being subbed on then off.” @CA14____
“The wee man was average and that’s me being kind!!” @ThomasM78167646
“He’s useless.” @PTrizzy1919
“This says everything that needs to be said, subbed on in the 20th now off in the 80th.” @GlasgowFIFA_
After suffering possibly the most demoralising thing for a footballer in the game, the reaction on social media won’t do Johnston’s confidence any good, but the disappointment of many Celtic fans was understandable given his performance numbers.
As per SofaScore, he lost four of his seven duels, gave away the ball 13 times and sent four of his shots wide of the target.
Indeed, today’s game was typical for how Johnston’s camaign has gone. Featuring for the 10th time in the Premiership this term, the winger is still yet to get off the mark in terms of goals or assists. Today was just the latest ineffective display from the 22-year-old.
