Celtic fans have slaughtered Cristian Gamboa for his display in the 3-0 loss to Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday night.

Gamboa, 27, was a surprise inclusion in the starting line-up to take on the German titans in the Champions League group stage clash, and did little to justify future selections as he looked completely out of depth against some of the best attackers in the competition.

Kingsley Coman and David Alaba constantly had the better of the ex-West Brom right-back and he was perhaps at fault when Thomas Muller opened the scoring in the first-half when he failed to challenge Robert Lewandowski in the air during the build-up to the goal.

The Costa Rica international was again found out in the second goal from Joshua Kimmich when he allowed Coman to cross the ball into a packed penalty area.

Celtic fans on social media weren’t afraid to tear into Gamboa during the game, with one calling the speedy full-back a “liability” to the side.

Here is a selection of their tweets:


Gamboa was only earning his second appearance of the season against Bayern, but it seems unlikely that he will be in the first-team any time soon in the Champions League having been torn apart by the home side’s attack.

He put in a solid display against Dundee at the weekend, but there’s no doubt that he was completely out of his depth against the Bundesliga champions.
