Celtic fans have not enjoyed the performance of goalkeeper Craig Gordon in UEFA Europa League qualifying against Suduva this evening.
The shot-stopper failed to deal with a crossed set-piece, allowing the away side to equalise the match after Olivier Ntcham had headed the Hoops in front just two minutes in.
Although there were definite question marks about the defending, or lack of, there was plenty of room for the Scotland international to come and claim the ball.
There has also been problems with his distribution, which seems to have failed to improve in any way over the last 12 months.
Luckily Celtic are dominating possession and creating chances, but the fact that the team keep conceding really soft goals is a point of massive frustration for most supporters.
Here’s hoping we can up our game and take a win back to Celtic Park for the second leg.
Fans took to Twitter this evening to share their thoughts on Craig Gordon’s performance so far…
Did Somebody nail craig Gordon's feet to the floor??
Surely got to come and collect that??
Starting position should be better and then just take flight of the ball!
In saying that, still should have had better protection!!

@mstewart_23 I get Craig Gordon’s your pal and ex teammate but he totally sold that goal. No-one else. He shat it. Again.

Watching the goal again… Craig Gordon has to come off his line there. Ridiculous.

Craig Gordon is the one guy in that Celtic team I can’t take to. Can’t kick a ball and isn’t commanding enough, especially when you consider how much experience he has. A proper goalie would be ranting and raving at that defence.

Played well enough until Craig Gordon reminded everyone how much he loves to stay on his line when crosses come in ???? We’ll score a couple more in the second half ????

Can we switch Goalkeepers at half time? Think Craig Gordon is too busy thinking about his new girlfriend than organising his defence #Celtic

Craig Gordon’s distribution is abysmal.
