Sutton, Dembele and Congerton: The best of Celtic Twitter over the last week
By Danny Wright
It’s been another successful week for Celtic and Football Insider has scoured Instagram and Twitter to bring you the best social media posts from players, pundits and fans.
During the seven days, the Bhoys hired Lee Congerton as their new head of recruitment before getting back to winning ways on Sunday with a narrow 2-1 win over Dundee at Dens Park.
The lack of news around the Congerton appointment is a sign of how much the relationship between Celtic & old media has totally broken down.

The person who runs the Celtic Research Twitter page made a great point about how unexpected the appointment of Congerton was.
There was little news in the media about his arrival beforehand but the same can’t be said about Pedro Caixinha’s arrival across the city at Rangers.

James McKay took a dig at Old Firm rivals Rangers by pointing out their over-enthusiasm with picking up a point against the Hoops last Sunday. Clint Hill earned Gers a late point at Celtic Park in what was only the second time in this domestic season Brendan Rodgers’ side have failed to win.

St. Patrick’s Day celebrations were rife on Friday and this US mayor, Dan Devine, went viral on Twitter after he wore a Celtic shirt to court to show his support to the Hoops.
It doesn’t matter if you’re 5,761 miles away from Glasgow, these Celtic fans were proud to don the Hoops on St. Patrick’s Day in the Japanese capital city of Tokyo.

Whenever you need a former player’s views on the Bhoys, Chris Sutton is usually the place to go. The ex-Parkhead striker pointed out that Celtic are currently in the middle of a rough patch and praised Sunday’s opponents for putting up a fight.
Time to rest up big Moussa Chris? Time to unleash @Leighgriff09 again? Moussa needing a rest in my opinion.

This Celtic supporter replied to Sutton’s tweet saying that he thinks Moussa Dembele is beginning to show some tiredness. The 20-year-old has scored 32 goals in all competitions for the Hoops this season but has failed to find the net in his last two outings.
Good win yesterday & still undefeated ! Solid team performance ????????. Thanks for supporting us ???????? @celticfc
— Moussa Dembélé (@MDembele_10) March 20, 2017
Dembele was proud of his teammates despite him failing to get on the scoresheet against Dundee. He took to Twitter to thank the Celtic faithful for their support in what was an very narrow victory for the Hoops.
