'Complete failure', 'Clown' - Celtic fans blast Levein over Rodgers comments
Celtic fans on social media have reacted with fury to comments made by Hearts manager Craig Levein.
The Hearts boss, as quoted by STV Sport, accused Hoops manager Brendan Rodgers of ‘bleating’ after the Northern Irishman criticised the Tynecastle pitch after the Hoops’ 3-1 victory over Hearts on Sunday.
Levein then went to claim that the pitch would be exactly the same when the Hoops come to Tynecastle next season, and that Steven Naismith’s controversial challenge on Scott Brown that is set to net him a two match ban wasn’t a bad challenge.
Unsurprisingly Hoops fans were extremely unhappy with Levein’s comments, with one fan claiming that he was “a dinosaur”, with another comparing him unfavourably to Rangers supremo Dave King.
Here are some of the best reactions from Hoops fans angered by Levein’s comments.
Craig’s right, nothing will change. He’ll continue to be the most boring person he can possibly be, continue signing has beens, playing boring mediocre football, and winning absolutely nothing. Brendan will continue to win trophies, play exciting football & manage big clubs. ????????

I wouldn't expect anything more from a manager whose punt and run tactics have led to a complete failure this season. The Hearts fans will be screaming for him to be sacked next year. I hope he keeps the job for life. ????

Levein seems to have a bee in his bonnet about Celtic this season, with with these comments and comments he made earlier in the season about Hoops captain Scott Brown, who he claimed, as reported by BBC Sport, went out to deliberately injure Hearts midfielder Harry Cochrane.

The comments from Levein have certainly added to what has always been a feisty fixture, and you can expect fireworks when the teams meet for the first time next season.
