Bayern Munich have sacked manager Carlo Ancelotti after Wednesday night’s Champions League demolition by Paris Saint-Germain – and Celtic fans on Twitter have reacted in brilliant fashion to the news.

The Hoops face Bayern next month in the Champions League and, bizarrely, will mean that the Scots will play more than half of their group games against managers who weren’t in the role when they draw was made.

The Italian, who led Bayern to the Bundesliga title last season having been appointed to replace Pep Guardiola last summer, was dismissed after a meeting of the club’s board on Thursday.

Bayern announced the news on their official English Twitter account.

Anderlecht have also sacked their boss and with Ancelotti now out of a job, it only leaves Unai Emery and Brendan Rodgers in their post since August’s draw in Nyon.

Fans of the Hoops are jokingly claiming the former Milan, Real Madrid and Chelsea boss is scared of facing Brendan Rodgers side as they prepare to face the Germans in three weeks.

Here are some of their comments on Twitter:

The Bavarian giants have already dropped five points from their opening six domestic games, sitting in third place in the Bundesliga, but it was the comprehensive nature of their 3-0 loss to PSG that really sent shockwaves through the club.

Bayern have conceded more goals in their first 10 games this season than they did in the opening 10 games of the last two seasons combined.

The club’s problems stretch back to April 4 of last season, winning only 11 of their last 21 matches in all competitions with six losses.

In other Celtic news, Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has claimed lots of clubs are keeping close tabs on one “excellent” Hoops player.
