It’s fair to say that Shane Duffy wasn’t at his best against Rangers on Saturday.
The 28-year-old made his Glasgow derby debut in a 2-0 defeat, his first loss as a Hoops player since signing on a season-long loan from Brighton & Hove Albion.
And that has led to a debate amongst several Celtic supporters regarding whether or not the defender should be dropped for this Thursday’s meeting with AC Milan.
One Celtic fan hinted that he’d be tempted to drop Duffy for the clash against Stefano Pioli’s side, and it’s safe to say that the comment divided plenty of Hoops fans.
These supporters seemed to agree about Duffy missing out…

It wasn’t too long ago plenty of Celtic supporters were loving the defender after he sealed his move to Parkhead, and we’re firmly in the camp backing the Irishman ahead of this weekend’s Europa League opener.
No Hoops player was at the races against Steven Gerrard’s side, and we feel that Duffy, Celtic’s second-best player this season according to WhoScored, has to start again for Neil Lennon’s side.
