Celtic fans crucify Scott Bain’s performance vs Cluj

Celtic were humiliated by CFR Cluj at Parkhead on Tuesday night, and fans are furious at goalkeeper Scott Bain.

For the second year running, Celtic have suffered an upset in their Champions League qualifiers, and this one is perhaps even worse due to the fact that the second leg came at home.

After a relatively comfortable 1-1 in Romania, Cirpian Deac immediately stunned the Bhoys with a first-half header on Tuesday, and a truly remarkable second half ended with the visitors walking out as 4-3 winners, 5-4 on aggregate.

While very few players in green and white can come out of the game with any credit, fans are particularly annoyed with Bain.

It seems harsh to criticise a goalkeeper for not saving a penalty, but the spot-kick that levelled things up at 2-2 was certainly saveable, and the Romanians’ third goal of the night came when the 27 year-old palmed a shot right into the path of an onrushing striker.

Pushing shots wide and out of the danger area is goalkeeping lesson 101, but Bain seems to have skipped that class.

Fans are crucifying the 27 year-old on Twitter, as you can see from the reactions down below…
