Celtic tweet that quickly turned into an epic fail

Early on Wednesday Celtic sent out their standard tweet highlighting and wishing their various international players’ good luck.

In their last tweet of the day the club was trying to justify to fans why players are scattered around the globe over a 10-day period.

From Karamoko Dembele and Conor Hazard through to Shane Duffy and Kris Ajer, Neil Lennon’s squad is at the mercy of national associations with Celtic and Arsenal unhappy with the care that their players have had from the SFA. Yesterday the SFA put Ryan Christie out of the Glasgow derby with Kieran Tierney facing the same fate when Arsenal take on Manchester City.

Club fans are traditionally hostile to the frequent international breaks but this time it is even more risky. Three matches in seven days before returning to prepare for the most important domestic fixture of the season is beyond a joke.

Celtic’s medical team will be assessing the players before Neil Lennon can get around to working on tactics or formation. Any plans being put in place just now are a waste of time as the cases of Ryan Christie and Odsonne Edouard illustrates.

The fans? Well they’re not happy at all.
