'Crazy' - Celtic fans blast Rodgers decision to start attacker against Anderlecht

Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to rage over Brendan Rodgers’ decision to start attacking midfielder Stuart Armstrong against Anderlecht on Tuesday night.

The Hoops confirmed on their official Twitter account ahead of kick-off at Celtic Park that Armstrong, 25, had been named in midfield over Olivier Ntcham, causing a great deal of uproar from the supporters on social media.

Celtic go into their final Champions League game of the season without much worries as they would have to lose by three goals to lose their grasp on third spot in Group B.

The Hoops are in pole position to qualify for the last 32 of the Europa League in the New Year and provided any major hiccup, should do just that.

However fans aren’t happy about one particular aspect of Rodgers’ team selection ahead of Tuesday’s showdown with the Belgian giants in Glasgow.

One baffled supporter called it a “crazy” decision.

Here is a selection of their tweets:

Armstrong has been ever-present this season, making 25 appearances across all competitions and scoring three goals and supplying four assists in the process.

The Scotland international was facing a lot of doubt over his future at Parkhead in the summer as contract talks dragged out, and many thought that affected his form.

However he has since signed a deal and it seems that fans believe the attacker is yet to get back to his best.
