Celtic: Sead Haksabanovic caught in ‘frosty exchange’ with a ball boy during defeat

|

Journalist Liam Bryce has noted that Celtic forward Sead Haksabanovic had a ‘frosty exchange with a ball boy’ in the club’s most recent game.

The Bhoys suffered a shock defeat over the weekend in their Scottish Premiership match against St Mirren as they lost 2-0 away from home.

Seeing as this was the club’s first lost in 364 days – putting an end to their 38-game unbeaten streak – it’s no surprise to hear that tensions grew a little high amongst the Celtic players as they game wore on.

Indeed, while writing for the Daily Record, Bryce noted that Haksabanovic was on the receiving end of some ‘treatment’ from the St Mirren players after he had some words with one of the ball boys.

Indeed, late on in the game, the journalist wrote: “Less than a minute of normal time remaining.

TIF thoughts on Sead Haksabanovic and Celtic…

Over the summer, the 23-year-old joined the Hoops as he arrived from Rubin Kazan having signed a five-year contract. This was his first appearance in the league for the club and he no doubt would have been keen to impress.

With that in mind, it’s no surprise to hear he might have lost his cool when things weren’t going his way in the match. In a 33-minute cameo, Haksabanovic lost the ball seven times, made two fouls, and one just one out of four ground duels – he did however deliver three key passes, and one big chance but his teammates couldn’t take advantage of this (via SofaScore).

So not only did he see his side lose on the day, but he also earned the wrath of the opposition after the incident with the ball bay. Not an ideal start to his career in the SPFL.

    Ball returned double quick at Celtic Park to both teams in every game. Keep the game flowing. St Mirren ahead therefore ball boys told to slow things down. Not too sure getting the ball boys involve din helping you is OK. The implication in reports from Celtic Park is that the ball boys give Celtic an advantage as they keep the game going. But supports are their to see teams play not ball boys. By any means necessary so fair play to them, if it can be called fair play. Imagine a Celtic ball boy slowed things up. You would soon hear about then.
