One image of Celtic’s shape during Thursday’s loss to FC Copenhagen has sparked an angry reaction from a number of supporters on social media.
Just like what happened earlier in the season against CFR Cluj, Celtic took a 1-1 draw from the first leg of an away European tie and crumbled under the pressure at Parkhead.
The reason Celtic were in the Europa League this season was as a result of that 4-3 defeat to Cluj back in August, but the Hoops got their revenge in the group stages with a 2-0 win at Parkhead this time.
That was one of four victories Celtic recorded in Group E, with two coming against Lazio and the other against Rennes, as Neil Lennon’s men topped the group.
However, history repeated itself on Thursday as once again Celtic couldn’t convert a positive 1-1 away draw into a win, and instead were knocked out of the Europa League.
And one image from the loss has got a number of supporters talking on social media, with Celtic’s shape prior to Copenhagen’s second goal being heavily criticised by fans.
