Having made the loan move from West Bromwich Albion out to Scottish giants Celtic during the January transfer window, youngster Oliver Burke has had a decent spell so far by all accounts, and has taken plenty of praise for his efforts for Brendan Rodgers’ side.

Football is football though and playing again in the unfamiliar striker role, he had a less than successful night in midweek (Thursday evening) as Celtic crashed out of the Europa League at the hands of Spanish side Valencia.

Losing 1-0 on the night to give a 3-0 aggregate score, despite scoring three goals and providing two assists in eight starting appearances and two substitute showings, he bore the brunt of the frustrations on social media for their efforts on the night.

Seems a little unfair as fans have been full of praise for him and he was played out of position through the middle, trying to cover their lack of available strikers, but plenty did appreciate it’s not his position.

Let’s hope he bounces back quickly.
