Many Celtic fans have been reacting to a tweet that was recently posted by the Hoops’ official Twitter account which shared images of some of Celtic’s players ahead of the squad’s departure to Milan for Thursday’s UEFA Europa League clash with Serie A leaders AC Milan.
This tweet shared images of Hoops captain Scott Brown, Tom Rogic, Scott Bain and Greg Taylor as they got ready to depart for Milan where the Glasgow club will attempt to earn their first win of the 2020/21 UEFA Europa League group stage in what will be their fifth group stage fixture.
Last week’s 4-1 loss to Sparta Prague confirmed that Celtic will not progress beyond the Europa League group stage this term and as a result, perhaps it would be understandable if Celtic’s squad are not extremely happy ahead of Thursday’s Europa League clash with Milan.
Judging by these replies to this tweet, it certainly seems as though plenty of Hoops supporters believe that is the case and if they are right, then perhaps that negative atmosphere doesn’t bode well for their chances of getting a result in Milan.
Although supporters would have loved to have sealed the title on the pitch, it just wasn’t possible. The Hoops’ official Twitter account reacted to the news with excitement, and fans followed suit:
The thirteen point gap between Celtic and Rangers means there is no credible argument to be made against the Hoops being handed the title. They may have been some controversy over how it was awarded by the SPFL but a massive turnaround would have been required in the final ten games, which was never likely to happen.
As it is, manager Neil Lennon and his team will now be planning to secure a historic tenth title in a row when next season kicks off.
