FORMER midfield ace Alan Thompson has labelled Celtic fans “BUFFOONS” after their reaction to the dismal 1-1 draw with St Johnstone at Parkhead yesterday.
The champions, bidding for a historic tenth successive title, have now dropped 11 points in 14 Premiership outings – one more than the 30 league fixtures last season.
Neil Lennon has watched in horror as his players have toiled to reproduce the form of previous campaigns and they now trail Steven Gerrard’s Ibrox side by 13 points although they have two matches in hand.
Last weekend, supporters descended on the stadium after the appalling 2-0 loss to Ross County that ended their 35-game unbeaten run in domestic competitions and sent them toppling out of the Betfred League Cup, a trophy they had won the previous four seasons.
There were unruly scenes with police and there was another demonstration from a crowd following the latest setback in a season that is unravelling before the turn of the year.
Thompson, who was brought to Parkhead by Martin O’Neill from Aston Villa in November 2000, also worked alongside Lennon in his first stint as the side’s manager.
The Geordie took to social media to let rip in a tweet: “Do you buffoons not know how you make a GREAT club look with such petulant behaviour?”
Furious fans reacted in kind in another weekend to forget for the club and its followers.
