Celtic round off season in typical fashion; fans let club feel their anger
The Celtic fans vented their anger toward the football club this afternoon after a sorry season finally came to an end.
A 0-0 draw at Easter Road this afternoon summed up what’s been a dreadful campaign on and off the park. The result also means that the gap between ourselves and Rangers will end at a staggering 25 points. Pathetic.
The game today was exactly what we’ve seen from Celtic all season. All flash but no end product. We can pass the ball and penetrate the opposition defence until our heart’s content. However, try and ask this Celtic side to actually stick the ball in the back of the net? It’s as if the building of this team forgot to find a spot for that particular cog.
Celtic fans have been left furious with the club all season of course. Or at least stretching back to October. It’s been one disaster to another on and off the pitch, with a prolonged failure to sack Neil Lennon kicking it all off.
But there have been a host of different chances for this Celtic team to make the pain of losing 10-in-a-row a touch easier to take. Winning the Scottish Cup and going on a 10-game winning run in the league under John Kennedy would’ve been a morale-boosting way to end the campaign. Even just ensuring our rivals didn’t go the full league campaign unbeaten would’ve been nice too.
Celtic have failed everything they set their mind to this season; fans right to show anger
However, it’s almost as if every task this Celtic side has set its mind to this season, it’s failed to achieve it. Win the league? Nope. Qualify for the Champions League? Nowhere near. Qualify for the last-32 of the Europa League? Don’t be daft. Defend one of our cup competitions? Didn’t even reach Hampden. End Rangers’ unbeaten run? Why bother.
Celtic fans have had to deal with a combination of some of the worst performances we’ve had since John Barnes. Yes, not even the Tony Mowbray era. Even he didn’t make as big a mess of things as this.
The continued silence regarding the progress on the appointment of a new manager also isn’t helping. The season is now officially over for Celtic. There’s no reason to wait any further on announcing Eddie Howe. It doesn’t matter if he’s waiting on certain assistants from Bournemouth to join him – there should be nothing stopping us from making the announcement.
Hopefully, we hear something substantial on that over the next week. This needs fixed immediately so that all of our focus can go back towards rebuilding this incredible football club.
But as for today? Fans have been left fuming as we concluded the campaign with yet two more dropped points. Here’s a look at what the supporters have been saying after this afternoon’s stalemate:
Well that's it.. No fight, No Hunger, No ideas. This season has been absolute shambles on and off the pitch. Terrible way to see our Legend of a Captain go. https://t.co/C6ocf0haJv

Thank god it’s over. The worst season I’ve ever seen. Howe in, immediately. It’ll take more than one summer to sort out this squad. Unlikely that 6, 8, 10 will be coming in/going out.

Well that sums up our season that performance, same typical play and team, totally run out of ideas at times, why change team from other night? Why not give more people a chance, let’s hope the changes now happen from top to bottom 🤔😳💚🙏👏 https://t.co/IPZSaP3ZQt

Thank the lord that the season is over. It has been disaster after disaster. Regardless of how poor we've been (both on and off the pitch) I can't believe how remarkable this era was for us.
No excuses now, step one of the rebuild has to arrive next week. https://t.co/gyV66EUwr9

Fitting way to end this disaster of a season. Ajer and Edouard, 2 best players playing their last games for Celtic too. With the squad left and the amount of replacements needed, we’ll genuinely need a miracle to even challenge next season. https://t.co/14DyV69NAK

Next season things must change! Though over the past few weeks the lack of communication with the fans under new chief Dominic Mackay has been worrying. Also the elephant in the room, a lack of a manager. A massive project ahead, overhaul of the philosophy, staff & team required.
