VASILIS BARKAS had his opportunity to turn a corner tonight but the goalkeeper was left in no mans land as he was beaten from a position he really should have covered.
The goalkeeper had a horrid start to his Celtic career last season, there was renewed hope he could turn things around, if that’s to be the case he needs to cut game changing errors out NOW!
The game changed when Barkas failed to deal with a whipped shot which went over him and into the net giving the away side their equaliser.
Midtjylland equalise through a howler from Barkas! 😮

Celtic fans are rightfully upset we’ve seen another howler from the keeper.
Been really hoping for Barkas to come good this season but that is horrendous.

Barkas is unbelievably bad, canny believe folk still attempt to justify him, horrific.

I'm off the Barkas bus.

Barkas will be decent when he realises he’s allowed to use his hands

One thing is certain, Barkas cannae be our number one keeper.

The Hoops looked good in the first half before Bitton decided to get himself sent off. When we got back to ten vs ten, we looked good, weren’t clinical and then we shoot ourselves in the foot again.
It’s so maddening, we looked decent and could have won the game by two or three goals. It shows the same problems exist from last season, it’s little wonder when so many of the personnel who let us down last season are still lingering.
