Celtic fans on Twitter mock Van Dijk's Netherlands international display

Netherlands Flag

Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk had a poor performance for Holland against Czech Republic.

Virgil van Dijk clearly has not been forgiven by Celtic fans after his comments about his spell at the club last week.

The centre-back told SkySports that he had learned more in five games for Southampton that he had in two years at Celtic, speaking after a superb Premier League display against Chelsea.

His international display for Holland last night was more reminiscent of his flawed performance against Manchester United for the Saints, as his poor positioning saw him partly culpable for a woeful Dutch display.

Celtic fans were quick to lambast the defender via social media, referring to his words about his time at the club.

Southampton supporters were a lot more supportive, hoping this was a game Van Dijk will personally bounce back from a better player.

The home defeat meant Holland did not qualify for Euro 2016, with Danny Blind's side not even making the expanded 24 team finals.

A plus point at least, is that Van Dijk will get a summer of rest, but this display showed that the 24-year-old has plenty to work on in his game, needing to develop a level of consistency if he is to be regarded as a player really capable of starring on the international stage.
