'Liability', 'Silver lining' - Celtic fans react as senior player may miss clash v Rangers

Celtic fans on Twitter have been reacting with joy to the news that Mikael Lustig may miss the Old Firm derby against Rangers at Ibrox on March the 11th.
The out-of-form left-back was set to serve a one match suspension against Dundee on Wednesday following his sending-off against Aberdeen.
However, with the Dundee match postponed, if it isn’t rescheduled in time Lustig will miss the vital clash against Rangers.
The thought of the struggling mainstay of the side, who has made 40 appearances this season not playing at Ibrox seems to have made some supporters very happy indeed.
Here are some of the best reactions on Twitter to the news that Lustig may miss the derby:

The 31-year-old senior player, who has spent six years in Glasgow, is currently going through one of the toughest spells of his career, as injuries and poor form seem to have caught up with him.
He was poor in the most recent Old Firm match in December, and the bad performances have continued in recent matches against the likes of Partick Thistle and Zenit, not to mention his sending-off against Aberdeen.
It will be interesting to see if Brendan Rodgers picks Lustig for the Hoops’ next scheduled match, the Scottish Cup tie against Morton on Saturday, a game which the Swede is available to play in.
