Celtic fans have been left divided over Mikael Lustig for his performance against Hearts on Sunday and it appears that a number of the club’s supporters want him gone in the summer transfer window.
Lustig, 31, has been a mainstay for the Hoops this season but according to a good amount of reactions on Twitter, it’s about time that Brendan Rodgers looks for a new right-back ahead of next season.
Cristian Gamboa is well out of the picture at Celtic Park with just a handful of appearances all season while Anthony Ralston’s loan to Dundee United a few months back proved that Rodgers doesn’t think he’s quite ready to step up yet.
Celtic fans seem to have made their mind up though and took to Twitter to tear into the senior player for his performance in the 3-1 at Tynecastle on Sunday.
One Hoops supporter claimed that the club should “ship him off” over the upcoming transfer window.
Here is a selection of their tweets:

Lustig should be the first one out the door in the summer, no good enough for us

great to see Lustig back on form, folk that said he was finished forgot that the guy used to play 25 games a season tops. Played 50 both seasons under Rodgers and been solid since his spell out the team

Some tackle from Lustig, beautiful outside of the boot ball from Rogic and a fantastic finish from Dembele????????

Lustig has made a stunning 46 appearances across all competitions for the Bhoys this season, scoring three goals in the process.
He has only played in four of the last 11 Scottish Premiership matches due to injury and suspension problems, but it is clear that he is still Rodgers’ first choice right-back as the season reaches it’s conclusion.
