I happened upon a tweet tonight that was so bizarre it stopped me in my tracks.
We all have our moans, gripes and moments of frustration and unfortunately, social media is there to capture all of it if you feel compelled to tell people what you’re thinking as you’re thinking it, rather than digest your thoughts before you spill your guts.
I’m guilty of this as much as the next guy but tonight this tweet genuinely made me stop and shudder.
The tweeter gives his summary of what he thinks is happening at Celtic and thinks it may be best for Brendan Rodgers to walk.
Think Rodgers isn’t interested anymore , after an excellent first season he looks bored maybe hoping for a bigger job? Why not strengthen the squad? If that’s the case he should walk now

Let that sink in, the man who has won every domestic competition he’s entered so far, qualified twice for the Champions League and got Celtic to into Europe beyond Christmas should walk because he’s been unable to strengthen the squad as of yet.
It’s utter madness!
There are two camps in this debate, the people who are happy clapping Brendan Rodgers and not questioning anything and the doom and gloomers who think it’s all dark clouds and drizzle hanging over Celtic Park. Funnily enough, I’ve had abuse from both those sides on separate occasions for both backing the manager and criticising him.
Unfortunately, in football, there are not many binary topics, everything is open to interpretation. To a certain extent, that may come off as hypocritical as i dissect this lads opinion but if you genuinely believe the Celtic manager should leave then I’m afraid you don’t deserve nice things!
It’s the same with the fans absolutely slating Moussa Dembele because he might be leaving soon, when in fact the only people who have spoken about him leaving is the Celtic manager and his assistant.
Rodgers must be wondering what exactly is going on, to have only lost one domestic game in his time here, landed four trophies with the promise of more on the way and there are people in our support so negative they don’t mind the idea of him moving on.
Some Celtic fans really don’t deserve nice things!
