After a dreadful 1-0 defeat to Hearts at Tynecastle, Celtic fans are venting their fury at Eboue Kouassi.

A Kyle Lafferty volley meant that the Jambos shot to the top of the Premiership table at Celtic’s expense. Equally, Craig Levein’s side outfought Celtic in a dire performance from Brendan Rodgers’ champions.

Tough outing

A much-changed Hoops side saw the likes of Eboue Kouassi, Jonny Hayes, and Leigh Griffiths receive opportunities. However, it was Ivorian Kouassi who got it in the neck from the supporters after a below-par display.

Here’s the best (or worst) of the fan reaction to Kouassi’s display:

Kouassi signed from Krasnodar in January 2017 for approximately £3million. However, despite his big-money fee, the 20-year-old has struggled to make any form of impression since arriving.

Therefore, it appears the Celtic supporters have had enough of the Ivorian central midfielder.

Despite calls for John McGinn to be signed in the lead-up to the match, it was Kouassi who Celtic fans saw thrown into the fire.

Subsequently, massive improvement will now be required for the Hoops as they travel to AEK Athens on Tuesday night in the second leg of their Champions League qualifiers.
