‘These Guys Literally Have No Clue’ ‘A Good Back Up Option’ Fans Unconvinced By Celtic’s Decision To Offer Defender Two-Year Contract

Celtic right-back Mikael Lustig has been offered a new two-year contract by the club, according to the latest reports.

The Swedish international’s current deal was set to expire this summer, but it appears the Hoops have had a change of heart about letting him leave.

Supporters on Twitter are far from convinced that Lustig is deserving of a new contract:

At 32 years of age, offering Lustig a two-year extension does seem to be a questionable decision. The veteran has been a great servant for the club but he hardly performed at his best last season.

There is a good argument to be made that he could be a decent backup option, especially with the club lacking numbers on the right-hand side of defence.

Still, the Bhoys may have been better served bringing in a young player to play second fiddle and gain experience behind the new first-choice right-back next season.
