Celtic fans execute postmortem from Valencia clash

Some supporters question the financial gulf between the two clubs, while other fans are left dismayed about a team that under-performed on the big stage.

It’s a debate that has been running for years and shows no sign of ending with last night the fifth home defeat that Celtic fans have witnessed in the last 18 months.

That sequence started with a 5-0 defeat from Paris Saint Germain – defeat was expected but the recurring theme is one of the team failing to do themselves justice in the spotlight.

When Bayern Munich visited last season Celtic ran them close, a 2-1 defeat was nothing to be ashamed of with the home-grown trio of James Forrest, Calllum McGregor and Kieran Tierney looking comfortable in that company.
