‘He’s the worst we’ve ever had!’ – Twitter slams Celtic star after Thistle game

Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Jozo Simunovic’s poor performance in the club’s Scottish Cup win over Partick Thistle on Saturday – and the majority of the fans have expressed plenty of anger towards the defender.

The Scottish champions looked set to book their place in the next roud with a comfortable two goal ahead inside the first 10 minutes against their Scottish Premiership rivals.

However, the next goal came for the visitors, largely thanks to Simunovic. The Bosnian’s back pass was not strong enough to reach Dorus De Vries, and that allowed Kris Doolan to halve the deficit by lifting the ball over the veteran goalkeeper.

Forrest would complete his hat-trick nine minutes into the second-half to seemingly put the game beyond doubt. But there was to be a late scare, and once again, Simunovic was set to come in for criticism.

Simunovic’s seemed to put a poor fight during a battle with Conor Sammon before the striker found the back of the net with six minutes remaining. Luckily for Celtic, they held on to secure the win.

His performance was slammed by the supporters after game. The centre-back form has been called into question on a few occasions this season, and his latest performance has left a number of fans worried with a Europa League tie with Zenit just around the corner and a number of injuries within the squad.
