The Swedish defender has been seriously out-of-form of late, culminating in a poor performance in the midweek defeat to Zenit Saint Petersburg in the Europa League.
75' – Sending off for #CelticFC: Mikael Lustig receives a second yellow after a poor tackle on Gary Mackay-Steven.
— Celtic Football Club (@CelticFC) February 25, 2018
And he wasn’t much better today at Pittodrie, after he was shown a red card in the second-half for a rather stupid second yellow card tackle on Gary Mackay-Steven.
The 31-year-old has been a hero to the Celtic support in the past, and today was, ironically, his first-ever sending off in a Celtic shirt – but judging by the reaction on social media, it might’ve been the straw which broke the camel’s back:
If Brendan Rodgers can't see Lustig and Devries aren't good enough then he is seriously damaging his reputation as a manager. If they cost us today the blame lies on him 100 percent.

Don’t care what Lustig’s done in the past, he’s absolutely finished! Get him so far to fuck from that team. He better shag Dembele and KT later for bailing him out.

Sad to say but times up for Lustig . Love the guy but he’s an accident waiting to happen.
Totally sold himself for the red today . Luckily Aberdeen didn’t make anything of the advantage ( not that it lasted to long ) but that could’ve blown the game wide open

Heartbreaking that Lustig once played his last good game and we didn't even know it

Hopefully we can appeal Lustig’s suspension and with any luck get it extended to May.

Today literally proved that Celtic are better with 10 men, than they are with Mikel Lustig on the park.

I doubt we'll see lustig again this season….

If Rodgers picks Lustig again as his 1st choice RB he needs to seriously look at himself. Lustig is finished.

That's Lustig officially finished

Lustig's been a good servant for the club. Finished now
— Gerry (@gerrymull3n) February 25, 2018
Mikael Lustig, get the fuck out of Celtic. You’re done, finished. Fuck off
— Jacko (@RyanJackson_21) February 25, 2018
What do you think of Lustig’s recent performances, and his future at the reaction from supporters online?
At his age, does he still have a realistic future at Parkhead under Brendan Rodgers?
