Another Celtic Win But Another Night of Brutal Abuse For Stefan Johansen

Another Celtic Win But Another Night of Brutal Abuse For Stefan Johansen

Celtic trounced Dundee United 4-1 at Tannadice tonight to go six points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership.

Leigh Griffiths scored an historic double; Jozo Simunovic netted a powerful second; and Kris Commons’ wonder strike sealed the straightforward victory for Ronny Deila’s men.

But whilst the club’s fans, players and staff were all seemingly delighted with the display, there was one man who was yet again singled out for abuse from the Parkhead faithful: step forward Stefan Johansen.

The Norwegian was Scotland’s Player of the Year in 2015, but his form has tailed-off badly this season, with many fans unhappy with his performances.

We told you earlier in the week how the club had tried to conduct a Q&A session with Johansen via the official Celtic Twitter account, only for the exercise to be hijacked by fans giving the midfielder stick.

And tonight, despite Johansen playing 90 minutes in the resounding win tonight, he received more of the same treatment from his own team’s support…

 

He might not be playing well, but does he deserve this level of stick?

Has he really fallen this far from the heights of last season?

Let us know in the comments section below…
