'Brutal', 'Overweight' - Celtic fans slam one player in draw v Kilmarnock

Celtic fans on social media have slammed fringe player Calvin Miller for his performance against Kilmarnock, in a game which ended in a goalless draw.

The 20-year-old, who is the long-term left-back understudy to Kieran Tierney, made his first start for the Hoops since February, as Brendan Rodgers played plenty of fringe players in what was a relatively meaningless game for the Bhoys.

Sadly for Miller, fans weren’t happy with his performance, with one claiming that he would ‘never’ be a Hoops player, and another claiming that his performance was ‘brutal’.

Here is a selection of their tweets:

The player is a tad unfortunate in that not only does he have to compete with Tierney, who is one of the most promising players in Great Britain, but he has also been converted from a striker to a left-back, which isn’t the easiest thing for a player to do.

It seems likely that Rodgers will sign another left-back in the summer to provide competition for Tierney and to be able to give the player a rest sometimes, as he is in danger of playing far too much football.

As for Miller, it seems that he will become anything more than a fringe player at the Scottish champions, unless he changes to once again play in a more attack-minded position, as he just doesn’t look comfortable at left-back.
