Celtic fans weren’t in any mood to swallow airbrushing his way over Celtic’s repeated European failures.

Three seasons’ running the hoops have crashed out of Champions League qualifiers with the loss of £30m a year largely down to failing to strengthen the squad in time for the most lucrative matches of the season.

played his fourth Celtic match in this season’s defeat from Ferencvaros while Albian Ajeti came off the bench. Within a week of losing to the Hungarian side Celtic signed Shane Duffy and David Turnbull.

It has been a familiar failing down the years with Malmo, Maribor, and Cluj, all unseeded, knocking Celtic out under three different managers. This year alone Celtic have been beaten by and in the with the Czech side racking up an 8-2 aggregate.
