Celtic fans react on Twitter after Vladimir Weiss makes joke about European exit

By Matt Farr

Former Rangers midfielder Vladimir Weiss has incurred the wrath of the Celtic fans on Twitter after making a joke at the club’s expense.

Weiss, now playing for Qatar side Al-Gharafa, hit out at Celtic by asking who they had been drawn against in Monday’s draw for the Champions League knockout stage.

Celtic were eliminated at the group-stage after finishing bottom of their group, without a win from their six matches – including an embarrassing 7-0 defeat to Barcelona on September 13.

The 27-year-old had just a brief spell at Rangers, joining them on a season-long loan from Bolton in 2010. He made 35 appearances during his spell, but was a big hit with the Rangers fans and has subsequently maintained a positive relationship with the fanbase.

However, Celtic’s fans were less than impressed with Weiss’ outburst, hitting out at the Slovakian star in reply.

Here are some of their messages on Twitter:

Celtic are currently eight points clear of rivals Rangers in the Scottish Premiership, but could extend their lead to 17 points if they win their three games in hand.

They have won the last five Scottish Premiership titles in Rangers’ absence from the top-flight, but even with their great rivals back in competition, they look set to add a sixth.

In other Celtic news, goalkeeper Craig Gordon has sent out a warning to their title rivals.
