“This Could Be Scary” – Twitter Reacts to Ronny Deila’s Celtic Team Selection vs Ajax

“This Could Be Scary” – Twitter Reacts to Ronny Deila’s Celtic Team Selection vs Ajax

With the club in the midst of an injury crisis and their European hopes hanging in the balance, the pressure is firmly on Celtic boss Ronny Deila.

And the Norwegian has risked the wrath of the supporters with an experimental team to play Ajax in the tonight’s Europa League clash.

With Scott Brown and Kris Commons ruled out through injury and with Stefan Johansen and Nir Bitton serving suspensions, Celtic fans had spent the afternoon speculating which players Deila would pick.

Former Hibs midfielder Scott Allan was rumoured to be in with a shout of making the starting eleven, however Deila has instead went for a midfield combination of Tom Rogic and Callum McGregor.

And it isn’t a decision which has went down particularly well with Hoops fans on Twitter.

Some have highlighted the difference in quality compared to seasons past, while others have branded the team a “shambles” before a ball has even been kicked:


Celtic and Ajax’s Europa League campaigns will end if Fenerbahce can win against Molde in the other game from Group A. The Scottish champions will need to win both tonight’s game and their final tie against the Turks to have any chance of qualification.
