Celtic Pigs

I guess when you've lost the only thing to do is call everyone a pig!

It's safe to say there's a bit of bad blood between Celtic and Swedish champions Malmo after their Champions League qualifier first-leg game. 

Celtic managed to take the lead after just three minutes with the oldest looking 25-year-old, Leigh Griffiths, opening the scoring. The Bhoys then went 2-0 up just seven minutes later with Nir Bitton getting on the scoresheet to help Ronny Deila's men to a 3-2 victory. 

While Malmo are certainly still in the tie after picking up two vital away goals, their goalkeeper Johan Wiland was NOT impressed with his Scottish opposition. 

In an interview with Swedish newspaper Kvallsposten, Wiland got right stuck into Celtic, saying: "They are pigs, all of them, that’s the way it is.

"You just have to try to stay cool and do what we have to do on the pitch. Leigh Griffiths, well, I don’t know what to say, he behaved like a child, tugging shirts all the time."

Blimey! It didn't just end with Wiland getting a bit feisty, with former Celtic loanee Jo Inge Berget also calling his ex-team-mates pigs:"I don’t want to say that they are a group of pigs," he began.

"They have some tough players. We knew before the game that it would be tough so you just have to roll with it."

We can't wait for the return leg, we reckon it's going to be mental!
