Celtic fans react to Cristiano Piccini’s display for Valencia in the Champions League

Reported Celtic summer target Cristiano Piccini shone for new club Valencia in their 0-0 draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford on Tuesday night, and Bhoys fans were quick to react to his display on Twitter.

The Daily Mail reported in August that Brendan Rodgers wanted to bring the right-back to Celtic Park, but Peter Lawwell failed to get a deal over the line and he joined Valencia in a £7m deal from Sporting Lisbon instead.

While Mikael Lustig continues to struggle and come under heavy criticism from the Parkhead faithful for his performances so far this term, Piccini has been a regular for the La Liga outfit and produced a brilliant defensive showing against the Red Devils on Tuesday.

Celtic supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on the 26-year-old Italian’s display, and while one labelled him as a “class act”, another said “Celtic missed a trick” by not signing him.
