FORMER SPL Chief Roger Mitchell slammed one Celtic fan on social media for his take on Celtic’s poor performances in Europe and claimed that mentality is exactly why the Celtic board sleep easy at night.
The Hoops were thumped at home by Bayer Leverkusen in what’s become the norm at Celtic Park. A well managed decline of football operations has meant the club now struggle to really put up a fight against European opposition.
Bayer Leverkusen are a good team, but there was a time when Celtic would have not only gone toe to toe with them – but would’ve managed to get the victory.
Mitchell is an outspoken Celtic fan at times but has he hit the nail on the head?
This is why the Celtic Board are relaxed. The level of delusional loyalty among the fans is astonishing.
Despite getting thumped every year by an increasingly lower level of non Scottish competition, they think they can compete in the EPL today.
Astonishing denial. https://t.co/WHn2Tw24wH

Celtic fans can be loyal to a fault; there are some supporters out there who think the people running our club should continually be given the benefit of the doubt.
If footballing operations were run better and a structure was implemented – we could again look to challenge these sides. Right now, the decline is stark.
Yes, we’re going through a rebuild but before Ange came on the scene, Europe was still a major issue for Celtic.
Neil Lennon enjoyed a good run in the Europa League two seasons ago – that was down to grit and some incredible saves from our former goalkeeper Fraser Forster.
