Marvin Compper’s attire at the Celtic Player of the Year awards last night has been doing the rounds.

Supporters have been absolutely slaughtering the big German, who’s made just one appearance for Celtic since signing back in January 2018.

The players all seemed to arrive in dark coloured suits that were fitting for the occasion. Scott Brown and Filip Benkovic both wore acceptable looking grey pieces. But Compper, on the other hand, came out with a rather eye-catching light-brown suit that totally stole the show.

It looked incredibly out of place with the rest of the squad. And supporters were quick to spot it too. Here’s a look at some of the supporters’ reaction to the suit.



Sums up his Celtic career

If truth be told, nothing should really surprise us when it comes to Compper. His career at Parkhead has been such a laughing stock that the suit just typifies it.

There were rumours before the St Mirren match early this month that the German was going to make his first appearance of the season. That came after Neil Lennon admitted he could have a part to play this season.

Instead, however, he hasn’t been seen all season. The duo of Kristoffer Ajer and Jozo Simunovic have halted any chance Compper had of making an impact.

As for the awards themselves, it was great to see Callum McGregor pick up both Players’ Player of the Year and Player of the Year last night. It was fully deserved for his stunning form this season, and that should be just the start of the gongs he picks up this term. Celtic’s official Twitter account posted the results as they happened.

Kristoffer Ajer picked up Young Player of the Year too, with Odsonne Edouard taking the Top Goalscorer award.

The Goal of the Season award went to captain Scott Brown for his stunner against St Johnstone at Parkhead back in February. With Mikey Johnston taking the Academy Player of the Year award too, it was a positive night for recognition.

Compper, however, made sure many spotted him on the night too.
