Celtic fans slate 26-year-old's performance after win against Inverness
By Amir Mir
Gary Mackay-Steven’s started the game for Celtic as they cruised to a 4-0 win against Inverness on Wednesday night – but fans on Twitter were not pleased with his performance.
The 26-year-old was taken off after 69 minutes for Callum McGrergor, but the supporters slated him during his time on the field.
Brendan Rodgers helped guide his team to their 22nd consecutive win in the Scottish Premiership which helps them continue their unbeaten record in Scotland.
Scott Sinclair opened the scoring just before half-time before Moussa Dembele added a second just after the break.
Stuart Armstrong struck home a third before Dembele made sure of all three points to help seal yet another win for his side.

However, despite the win the Celtic faithful were not pleased with Mackay-Steven’s who seems to be finding it difficult to find form.
Many stated that they wanted the midfielder to do well but it seems that he may not be good enough for the Bhoys team.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
