'Bottled it' - Celtic fans slam first teamer for blunder v Aberdeen

Celtic fans took to Twitter to slam striker Moussa Dembele after he missed a great chance to open the scoring against Aberdeen at Pittodrie, in a match which the Hoops eventually won 2-0.
The 21-year-old first teamer was played in by Scott Sinclair but he failed to get his shot away first time and his effort was eventually saved by Freddie Woodman, who also saved Tom Rogic’s follow-up effort.
Here are some of the best reactions from Twitter to Dembele’s huge blunder in front of goal:


As for the game itself, the Hoops came close to opening the scoring again in the first-half, when Olivier Ntcham’s effort came back off the post.
Dembele made up for his sitter in the 37th minute, when he nodded home a brilliant James Forrest cross to score his 10th goal of the season.
In a second-half of few chances, the Dons missed a good chance to equalise when Gary Mackay-Steven elected to shoot rather than pass to Stevie May who was in a position to score, after Kristoffer Ajer went down with a head injury – which he recovered from.
Dorus de Vries was then forced into a save from McLean, before Mikael Lustig and Ajer managed to clear the danger.
Lustig was then sent-off for a second bookable offence with fifteen minutes to go, as the Hoops had to dig in to hold on for three points.
Celtic then killed the game off in the 83rd minute, when Tierney finished off a breakaway with a brilliant finish.
Aberdeen sub Sam Cosgrove was then sent-off for an awful challenge on Scott Brown as the Dons went to pieces.
