Marvin Compper was handed his debut for Celtic in the Scottish Cup against Greenock Morton on Saturday and his inclusion in the side was met with disappointment after his display for the club.
It was a goalless opening 45 minutes against the Scottish Championship side as the Hoops struggled to maintain any kind of pressure on their counterparts and played within themselves.
Moussa Dembele brought the game to light in the second half with a brace to send the Bhoys into the next round of the competition.
The former Germany international only signed a two-year deal for the Hoops back at the start of the January transfer window from RB Leipzig, but a calf injury has meant his debut for the club has been held back.
Fans felt that his was jittery display in his first outing for the club.
But with his debut now out of the way, there is now a possibility that Brendan Rodgers could use him against Rangers next weekend in the top of the table clash.
Both sides are gunning for victory – more so than ever – but the Hoops may shy away from using the former Bundesliga player, considering it too soon in light of the player’s lack of game time.
Here is a selection of Twitter responses following the debut:
I wouldn’t start Compper next week as he’s just in from injury and new to our game. Ajer might play right back (can play very well there) with Hendry tucking in beside Jozo. Gamboa has clearly pished on Brendan’s cous cous!

Celtic playing back three with Compper making debut & looking all over the place – no-one knows their job.

Compper has not over impressed me. Slack in possession and looks uncomfortable heading the ball so far!!!!
