Celtic fans reacted with joy to the announcement that Jose Mourinho had been sacked by Manchester United.

A pay off in the region of £20m might almost bring a smile to his face but there was joy across Celtic twitter at this morning’s announcement.

There is one word to sum up the dislike that Celtic fans have for Mourinho- Seville.

Back in 2003 Martin O’Neill’s side battled their way through an epic UEFA Cup campaign to reach the final in the Spanish city.

There is little doubt that Porto were a special team- 12 months later they were picking up the Champions League trophy after knocking Manchester United on the way.

In Seville no tactic was too low for Mourinho’s side as they dived and time wasted their way through the match and extra time.

Football with a snarl was the Mourinho way- a tradition that he retained throughout his time at Old Trafford.

After being sacked by Real Madrid, Chelsea and now Manchester United there is a very narrow list of clubs prepared to indulge the ego of ‘The Special One’ and indulge him with the level of spending that he demands.
