Out in the cold at the Glasgow club, Marvin Compper has come out swinging.
The experienced centre-back joined in the January window but has found it hard to establish himself in Brendan Rodgers’ side to the extent he is yet to play in the Scottish Premiership since his move from RB Leipzig.
Despite his lack of game time, the one time Germany international has shown fight in his comments to Bild-Zeitung, stating even his own team-mates are questioning why he does not play.
As reported by The Scotsman, Compper said: “I’m fit and I train very well. Even my team-mates do not understand why I do not play.
“In the summer I had a calf injury. I got an athletic trainer and a physio at my own expense and made myself fit.
“Now it is up to the coach Brendan Rodgers to finally give me the trust.”
Despite adding that he hopes to play for Celtic, these Hoops fans do not seem keen on the idea…
How do we know Marvin Compper has criticised Brendan Rodgers? When nobody has ever seen him ? if a tree falls in a forest an no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound? ?♂️

Just shows you can’t trust Wikipedia. Compper doesn’t ‘play’ for Celtic.

Fair enough Compper may be fit , but fit for what? He certainly isn’t fit to play as a Professional Footballer in the SPL for Celtic ,if he wants to continue his career as a Pro. Footballer he needs to leave Celtic as soon as he can
