Celtic laboured to a draw at home to St Johnstone in the Scottish Premiership on Sunday, failing to continue where they left off from Thursday’s impressive win over FC Zenit in the UEFA Europa League.
On a day that Brendan Rodgers rotated heavily, perhaps with one eye on Thursday’s return leg in Russia, Celtic were well below their best, struggling to create opportunities and taking none in a dismal 0-0 draw.
The fixture was an opportunity for players like Cristian Gamboa and Calvin Miller to impress, getting rare starts with established performers Mikael Lustig and Kieran Tierney rested.
It was 20-year-old Miller’s first start for the club since August and he struggled to cope with the occasion for the most part, looking well below the standards set by Tierney.
While important to remember he is still young and inexperienced, it will be difficult for him to play more regularly if he doesn’t take his opportunities.
Celtic fans were disappointed with his performance, with some even already coming to a judgement that he isn’t good enough to make it at the club.
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
Cringey seeing Calvin Miller justifying his performance on Celtic twitter. He was the worst player on the park by a country mile, has never proved he is good enough and if anything also consolidated that opinion today. Nowhere near the required standard!

Calvin Miller won't make it at Celtic unfortunately… Just not good enough. When you look at the level even Ralston who is younger is at, its a couple levels above

Calvin Miller is not good enough

he doesn't look sharp enough on the ball to play any position for Celtic.
