Gary Mackay-Steven sends message to Celtic fans after win against Inverness

By Amir Mir

Gary Mackay-Steven has hailed the Celtic supporters after they recorded a 4-0 win over Inverness on Wednesday night.

Midfielder Mackay-Steven started the match for Brendan Rodgers side and was substituted in the second half with the score at 3-0.

Prior to him going off, winger Scott Sinclair opened the scoring minutes before the break with a wonderfully curled shot.

Striker Moussa Dembele then struck straight after the interval when he punished a horrible error from the home side’s goalkeeper.

From then on it was easy pickings with Stuart Armstong scoring via a free kick, the fifth Hoops player this season to score ten or more goals.

Seven minutes later Dembele struck his 31st of the campaign to the delight of the fans who are now closing in on yet another SPL title.

This was Mackay-Steven’s message to supporters after the game.

“Great team performance tonight,” Mackay-Steven’s wrote on his personal Twitter account. “Travelling fans were first class as always. Recover now and go again Sunday.”

Despite starting the match and Rodgers side producing yet another brilliant display, the Celtic faithful were not too pleased with Mackay’s performance.

Many believe he is not good enough for the team and should not be in the squad despite their dominance this season.

Nonetheless, the Glasgow club will be looking to continue this run when they host St Mirren on Sunday afternoon.

The Championship outfit are fighting relegation as they sit rock-bottom in the second tier and will be looking to cause an upset against the Bhoys in the Scottish Cup.
