Celtic fans react on Twitter to Europa League draw

Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to give their thoughts on their Europa League last-32 draw against Russian side Zenit St Petersburg.

The Hoops finished third in their Champions League group, behind PSG and Bayern Munich but were able to hold off Anderlecht to clinch third place and a Europa League place.

Celtic announced the draw on their official Twitter account on Monday.

Fans on social media were split over the draw to play Zenit, with some having Celtic as favourites for the time and some having written the games off as a defeat already.

Here is a selection of their tweets:

The Hoops face a difficult tie against the team who are currently third in the Russian Premier League and managed by former Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini.

The winter break that Zenit will be in during the tie could help the Scottish champions, as their own winter break ends at the end of January.

The games in the Europa League last 32 will be the first ever meetings between the clubs.

Zenit qualified for the last 32 by finishing top of a Europa League group which featured Real Sociedad, Rosenborg and Vardar.

The games are due to be played at Celtic Park on the 15th of February and and in Russia on the 22nd of February.
