Twitter Reacts: Celtic Fans Describe East Kilbride Victory as ‘Spineless’ and ‘Embarrassing’

Celtic have reached the Scottish Cup quarter-finals following a 2-0 victory over East Kilbride.

The Hoops progressed against the part-time side thanks to goals from Leigh Griffiths and Colin Kazim-Richards, who was making his first start for the Glasgow giants.

But, given the gulf between Celtic and the Lowland League side, Ronny Deila’s men were expected to win far more comfortably, with his side of highly paid expensive stars facing the likes of PE teachers, civil servants and electricians lining up for East Kilbride.


To add insult to injury, both goals came from set-pieces and Griffiths’ opener appeared to contain a handball in the build-up and, and probably shouldn’t have counted.

EK did themselves proud, but coming off the back of two straight defeats, it was far from ideal for Celtic and their supporters.

Whilst their team is in the hat for the next round, many fans were far from impressed by the performance and weren’t afraid to let their feelings be known…
