‘Willie Wallace is talking utter guff,’ Celtic fans react to controversial remarks from Lisbon Lion

KIERAN TIERNEY was not the only Celtic legend to score an own goal yesterday, judging by the reaction to the interview that Willie Wallace gave to the press yesterday. It seems that the Lisbon Lion striker managed to score an OG himself with the comments he made regarding Brendan Rodgers and Tom Rogic.

We reported on these comments earlier this morning and also declared a bias towards Willie who is a personal friend. That doesn’t mean I agree with anything he has said, although from speaking to him over the last few years I know that he remains unhappy at the hammerings that Celtic have taken in Barcelona and Paris, believing Celtic should never lose like that.

Nevertheless his comments are way OTT and far too harsh toward both Brendan Rodgers – who I have said on here I regard as the best thing that has happened to Celtic since Henrik Larsson arrived – and Tom Rogic, who is a lovely lad and on a personal level my favourite player in the current squad. Okay, Tom may lack a little pace but if he had it he’d be playing for Barcelona or PSG and would be nowhere near Celtic!

Here’s a flavour of the reaction to Willie’s interviews on social media from the Celtic support…
