The Hoops knew they were heavy underdogs as the travelled to Bavaria for their third Champions League group tie this evening and that proved to be correct pretty much as soon as the first whistle sounded.
Thomas Muller pounced to give his side the lead after just 17 minutes, before the impressive Joshua Kimmich headed in the second after 29 minutes.
Throughout the first period, Gamboa really struggled, playing Muller onside for the first goal and getting his positioning all wrong for the second. Aside from that, he was absolutely torn to shreds by Bayern’s jet-heeled winger Kingsley Coman.
Gordon, meanwhile, couldn’t seem to get his kicking right, and one of his fluffed clearances led to a Bayern corner – from which Mats Hummels headed in the third.
It’s probably fair to say supporters weren’t best pleased with either player on social media:

I think Craig Gordon's got Summer's Ugg boots on. Distribution poor.

Big Lustig is never a centre half, all over the place and no pace to recover, Gamboa looking like a man who doesn’t play very often #Celtic

Anybody else think that it is too late in his career for Craig Gordon to learn distributing the ball with his feet? ?
Just me then? ?

The decision not to bring in another centre back is proving costly. Gamboa is brutal!

Gamboa is there being fleeced for one reason. The failure to sign another central defender.

#Celtic outclassed & lucky it's only 2-0.Defence a shambles & clueless Gamboa needs hooked.Lustig to RB & Ajer CB might keep score down.

Craig Gordon is the worst kicker of a ball I have ever seen he never finds a player or he puts the ball out
— Steven kelly (@Stevenk67671318) October 18, 2017
I honestly didn't think Rodgers would be foolish enough to play Gamboa again in a CL tie after his showing in Barcelona last season.

When is Craig Gordon going to learn he is a goalkeeper and his distribution of the ball does nothing but put us under constant pressure!

What do you think of the reaction?
