Video: Ex-Celtic Player John Guidetti Aggressively Taunts Ajax Players

Former Celtic and Feyenoord striker John Guidetti found himself at the centre of controversy on Thursday night after aggressively taunting Ajax players during a Europa League match.

Playing for current club Celta Vigo, Guidetti led the Spanish side’s front-line in Amsterdam could only watch as Ajax dominated the opening hour of the game and asserted a commanding three-goal lead.

However, Swedish international Guidetti initiated a fightback in the second-half, scoring 11 minutes remaining to make it 3-1 and he wasn’t messing about with his celebration.

Clearly mouthing the word ‘Feyenoord’, Guidetti appeared to making reference to Ajax’s bitter rivals, who he played for in the 2011/12 season, scoring 20 league goals in 23 league games:

Ex-Liverpool striker Iago Aspas really made Ajax nervous by making it 3-2, but Ajax did enough to hold on and secure all three points.

Now, in the modern age of footballers being accused of being lazy mercenaries, it’s nice to see a player show some passion, no?
