Some Celtic fans are indifferent to AIK fixture announcement

Celtic fans still seem to be upset following the Champions League exit to Cluj. It seems that it will take the Hoops support a while to get over the 4-3 defeat.

The latest example of this is when the Hoops announced the confirmation of the Europa League play-off fixture against AIK Stockholm.

The reaction to the announcement on social media wasn’t exactly positive. One fan accused the club of having β€˜zero ambition’.

Here are some of the best reaction from social media to the fixture confirmation:

It will be interesting to see the attendance for the game. It is unlikely that the match will be sold out. As evidenced by the above comments, there seems to be major indifference from the Hoops support about the game.

Still a vital game for the club

However, it is still a big match for the club. Celtic do need some sort of European football this season. It would be a catastrophe for the club to exit two European competitions in less than a month.

Normally you would say that if the Hoops play to their very best they will take a lead in the first game. However, following the Cluj game few will be taking anything for granted.

Neil Lennon will be hoping that a large crowd will be at Celtic Park on Thursday to support the Hoops against Stockholm. The result against Cluj may have put paid to that though.
