Valencia is just one of a number of clubs seemingly increasing interaction on their social media accounts.

And unfortunately, a Celtic supporter found that out the hard way after hijacking a question the club put to their own supporters.

The Spanish side asked fans about the favourite goal they’ve ever seen, and how they celebrated it.


The post got a bunch of reactions from Valencia fans and supporters of other clubs. It was very much just a casual conversation between the club and the football family.

And, predictably, we had one of our own have a wee pop back at the La Liga giants. The fan stated that the goal he’s going to have celebrated the most will be the five Oliver Burke scores on Thursday night.

That then prompted this response from the Valencia page.


No pressure Oli

So the gauntlet has now been thrown down to Burke. Valencia’s official account doesn’t think he’ll be able to score five on Thursday. It’s time to prove them wrong!

In all seriousness, however, this is yet another symbol of football clubs keeping up with the modern times. Valencia are clearly one of an increasing number of clubs to start becoming more fan-like on Twitter.

The likes of Roma and Borussia Dortmund are two other examples of clubs who are thriving through engaging with supporters on social media.

Celtic themselves haven’t been too communicative with supporters in such an informal fashion, but even their social media content has improved drastically over the last 18 months.

But in regards to Valencia, this is clearly the kind of communication fans like to have. The Hoops fan no doubt didn’t expect any form of response to his tease. But the Spanish club has hung the user out to dry, unfortunately.

Mind you, if Burke gets his quintet of goals at Parkhead against the La Liga side, it’ll be the Celtic fan that has the last laugh in this exchange. And he’ll have plenty of backing too from the rest of us!
