'Horrendous', 'joke': Some Celtic fans fuming over 69th-minute moment in Leverkusen clash

A number of Celtic fans have criticised the yellow card shown to Hoops defender Cameron Carter-Vickers in the Europa League tonight.

The Bhoys defender has been a shrewd addition to Ange Postecoglou’s side, joining on loan from Spurs in the summer.

Carter-Vickers has made 16 appearances for Celtic this term and was in action as the Hoops faced Bayer Leverkusen away tonight.

Celtic were level at the break as Josip Juranovic’s Panenka penalty cancelled out Robert Andrich’s opener.

The Hoops then took the lead in the 56th minute as Jota fired a fantastic left-foot strike across the keeper into the far corner of the net.

However, Carter-Vickers was controversially shown a yellow card in the 69th minute for a foul on Florian Wirtz.

This will rule him out for the final group game against Betis.

Here is what some Celtic fans made of the booking:

Celtic were unable to hold onto their lead and subsequently conceded twice more to go out of the Europa League.

Andrich grabbed a second and Moussa Diaby netted a late winner for the hosts.
