Celtic managed to bounce back from derby defeat to give their supporters something to cheer about on trophy day at the weekend, winning 2-1 against Hearts on the final day of the Scottish Premiership.
A superb double from prospect Mikey Johnstone had fans dreaming of a new dawn at the club, manager Neil Lennon giving first-team opportunities to a number of young players.
With next week’s Scottish Cup final looming on the horizon, it was a chance for fringe players in the squad to impress and most of them did.
One player who was criticised though was on-loan forward Oliver Burke, who again looked well below the required level the Hoops are looking for.
Eventually hauled off at half-time to be replaced by 16-year-old Karamoko Dembele, Burke looks devoid of all confidence right now and it’s a struggle to see him either winning a permanent move to the Hoops or breaking into West Brom’s team over the summer.
Many supporters have been left absolutely baffled by his performances over the last couple of months, with these fans taking to Twitter on Sunday to share their thoughts…
Oliver Burke is a fraud

Can any Celtic fans who were at the game today answer a wee question for me, please?
Did Oliver Burke actually touch the ball, at all? Serious question.
I saw the team sheet, got in from work wi 15mins gone and thought he'd been hooked already.

Oliver Burke is a waste of a jersey. Literally a man down. We will be stronger next season with some changes

Oliver Burke shouldn’t even be in the squad for the cup final. I’d rather see one of our youth players on the bench that day
