Zenit Threaten to Roast Celtic Like the Daily Mail Over Use of Wrong Club Crest

Zenit Threaten to Roast Celtic Like the Daily Mail Over Use of Wrong Club Crest

Zenit Saint Petersburg have started the pre-match mind games with Celtic on Twitter – after the Scottish champions used the Russian club’s old crest in their match-day programme.

The two sides meet in the Europa League last-32 first-leg on Thursday night under the floodlights at Celtic Park, with Roberto Mancini’s side looking to finally make a dent on one of European football’s big tournaments.

Earlier today, we told you how the Hoops had released early images of a classic Russian-style programme for the eagerly-anticipated fixture, but someone failed to spot one small error.

The Hoops have used the old Zenit crest in their mock-ups – rather than the club’s sleek, new design.

Back in 2016, Zenit ended up in a Twitter spat with the Daily Mail, after the newspaper claimed their badge was one of the ugliest in Europe – and now Zenit are threatening to get into the same sort of argument with Celtic if they don’t respect the new design:

Of course, it all seems pretty light-hearted – maybe Zenit could be Celtic’s newest pal on Twitter, after last season’s bromance with Borussia Mönchengladbach.
