The likes of First Minister Nicola Sturgeon and Deputy First Minister John Swinney have added to the chorus of disapproval this week, with the club eventually releasing a statement justifying the trip.

The recent performances of Ismaila Soro and David Turnbull have provided some positives in a difficult campaign for Celtic, and some fans felt the pair were being offered up on social media in an attempt to change the narrative.
