Red-faced Celtic fans react on Twitter to one of club's worst-ever defeats
By Tom Blackburn
Twitter has reacted in emphatic fashion to Celtic crashing to a humiliating 1-0 to minnows Lincoln Red Imps.
Red Imps beat Celtic 1-0 on Tuesday night in a result that must rank as one of the worst in the history of the Scottish giants.
The match was the first of two legs in the Champions League Second Qualifying round, so the Scottish champions still have the opportunity to progress.
It was Brendan Rodgers’ first game as Celtic boss and fans will now be sceptical about the direction of the club, with some taking to Twitter to blast his performance.
Red Imps are the country’s record champion with 22 league titles, the last 14 of which have been consecutive, and in 2014 they were the first team to represent Gibraltar in the UEFA Champions League.

Celtic have won the last five league titles in Scotland, but the last four have lacked the challenge of rivals Rangers and this is worst possible start to their campaign.
This season sees the return of Rangers to the top flight and they are expected to pose an instant threat after four years in the wilderness.
Fans from all clubs were reacting on Twitter, with the Celtic fans responses clearly differing to that of rival fans.
I expected better from Celtic.
Those fans in Gibraltar deserved better.
