With regular left-back Kieran Tierney out injured, and with the league title already wrapped-up, 20-year-old Miller was given the nod by Brendan Rodgers to make only his third Premiership appearance of the campaign under the floodlights in Glasgow’s East End.

However, the Hoops struggled to get into their groove in the first-half, with Miller particularly struggling to find his weight of pass, and seemed to lack the confidence to take his immediate opponent on.
In the end, the dour encounter finished 0-0, and despite his inexperience, the bulk of the frustrated Celtic support haven’t been shy in giving Miller an absolute hammering on social media tonight:
Obviously Calvin Miller is shite and won't make it but Sinclair tonight gave him no help whatsoever, never made any angles for him and hung him out to dry, Sinclair's time is up imo, should be sold

Calvin Miller having a nightmare. You're no gonnae get many chances playing instead of KT, need to make them count.

Bit harsh considering he's not got much game time.. but Calvin miller hasn't got what it takes to be Celtic

I’ve never fancied Calvin Miller at left back. He was thought to be one of the best players of his age in Europe at the age of 14/15. He needs to go out on loan as a winger cos he just doesn’t look like he’ll cut it as a LB imo.

Calvin Miller is the worst player I’ve seen in a Celtic shirt in a very long time.

Nothing better than standing in the pishing rain watching Calvin Miller pass the ball sideways

Calvin miller won’t make it at Celtic, don’t think Hendry will either.

I hope to fuck Kieran Tierney stays at Celtic for the rest of his career because Calvin Miller isn't even a tenth of the player KT is

Calvin Miller isn’t a left back. Every cross straight into the first man. Jack Hendry isn’t a right back. Embarrassing first half performance.

Calvin Miller’s never a Celtic player

Announce Calvin Miller P45

What do you make of the reaction to Miller’s display? Should supporters show a bit more leeway for a youngster coming into the starting XI?
What do you think?
