Celtic fans react on Twitter to Anthony Stokes suspension

The Irish striker has been suspended for two weeks.

Celtic have handed out their punishment to striker Anthony Stokes after his recent Twitter outburst, with the forward suspended by the club for two weeks.

The Irishman tweeted after travelling with the squad to the game in Inverness to then be left out of the team for the game.

His foul-mouthed tweet was not a smart idea but was born out of understandable frustration.

Stokes has been completely frozen out by Celtic manager Ronny Deila, who bristles with discontent at the mere mention of Stokes in any press conference.

His treatment has not been great and you can certainly sympathise with him over his reaction. However he should have kept his frustrations to himself - rather than tweet them for everyone to see.

Some Celtic fans shared that sentiment on Twitter today and are happy that Stokes is currently out of the team.

But the majority felt the punishment was harsh, especially so when you consider that Kris Commons was not handed such a punishment when he lost his rag at the entire backroom staff after being substituted by Deila v Molde last month.

Here is some of the best reaction from Twitter...
