Celtic described as 'fourth tier' and Scottish football 'bang average' after Champions League draw

Celtic described as 'fourth tier' and Scottish football 'bang average' after Champions League draw

The Scottish Premiership champions have been criticised once again after their 1-1 draw with Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League.

Celtic have once again found themselves on the end of some very harsh criticism, following their failure to beat Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League.

The Scottish champions were dealt a pretty tough group in Europe this season, being placed alongside champions Real Madrid, a very good side in RB Leipzig and Champions League veterans Shakhtar.

They would have been hoping to finish third and drop into the Europa League, with the Ukrainians not being able to play at their home ground and having plenty of players, due to the invasion by Russia.

However, things haven't worked out well for Ange Postecoglou's side this season and they were absolutely buried by pundit Jason Cundy, following a loss to Leipzig.

On Tuesday, they faced Shakhtar at home, which would have been seen as their chance to pick up three points in their group.

However, they failed to capitalise on their home advantage and could only manage to pick up a point, in a 1-1 draw, although it could have been much worse, if Danylo Sikan hadn't somehow managed the worst miss in the competition's history.

The draw meant that the Hoops can't even fall into the Europa League and will finish bottom of the group, with their opponents last night set to finish third.

That has led Cundy to once again go in on the Glasgow side, as well as the entirety of Scottish football, calling it 'bang average.'

"Has anyone seen Postecoglou?! Has anyone seen Scottish football?! Bang average! My word," the controversial pundit said on talkSPORT.

"It's not even Halloween and you lot are out!

"I'm thinking do you know what, there's no reason why these Scottish sides can't do something.

"Then all of a sudden you realise, actually, they are miles off it. They're not even close."

Cundy wasn't finished either, interrupting fellow pundit, former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jamie O'Hara, when the ex midfielder tried to stick up for the Scottish side.

"Celtic were unlucky tonight," O'Hara said, in the only moment he got to defend them.

"Unlucky what? To win a corner?" Cundy retorted

"They are fourth tier."

O'Hara disagreed, saying, "They're not fourth tier!" before once again Cundy jumped in.

"They are! They've got two points from eight games.

"What more evidence do you need, seriously, what more evidence do you need?

"And you're right, money makes a difference but the reality is that Scottish football is light-years behind."

Cundy probably shouldn't expect an invite north of the border any time soon...
