A Hibs fan has taken to social media to inexplicably criticise Mikael Lustig for taking a studded tackle to the legs at Easter Road.
Lustig and Mallan competed for a ball with Mallan clearly catching the Swedish World Cup star but appears to receive astonishing criticism for being the subject of the tackle.
It’s players like Mikael Lustig that I cannot stand in football.
Goes around acting like a cocky prick thinking he can get away with anything because he plays for Celtic. 🤢
When the reality is that he is a bang average footballer. pic.twitter.com/s9nvgcjZV8

This tweet is clearly born out of anger and jealousy towards a player who has won a lot throughout his career, represented his country at the highest level and played in the Champions League.
Lustig being a winner and a bit of a character lends himself to idiots like this who cannot stand to see the player smile.
The Celtic star has seen better days but he’s still miles ahead of many Hibs players who would kill for the career the Swede has carved out for himself.
It was also pointed out to the Hibs fan that Lustig has won a double treble in two different countries – Scotland and Norway. Not bad for a ‘bang average’.
