A lot of CELTIC FANS have been highly critical of Carl Starfelt since joining the club, but it would appear the tide is starting to turn.
There has been a lot of confirmation bias when it comes to the Swede’s performance as of late. He has been solid yet people are still saying Carl hasn’t been good enough. There are fans who make up their mind up on a player and that’s it.
However, there are many who will freely admit they got it wrong and others who have backed the player to come good now seeing that happen.
Carl Starfelt appreciation tweet. A solid, uncomplicated and reliable defender. He is exactly what we have been needing, do the job 1st and foremost nothing fancy👍.

Give me Starfelt & CCV over every other defensive partnership in the league.

I’m dreading saying this because I worry it’ll somehow jinx it, but Starfelt looks so composed at the back. Had a couple of wobbles in his first couple of games but he’s strolling about with the slippers on regularly these days.

It takes time to settle in a new country, in a new team that’s also building a new side. Ange has recognised he’s asking his defender’s to do more than just defend and there’s a lot of responsibility on his centre-backs shoulders.
It stands to reason there was always going to be a period of transition. The two centre-backs are making it difficult for Christopher Jullien right now and where he’ll fit in once back in the squad.
