Former Celtic midfielder Beram Kayal was superb as Scotland were beaten 2-1 in their latest Nations League clash.
A number of Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to praise Beram Kayal's performance as Alex McLeish's Scotland side were beaten 2-1 by Israel in UEFA's Nations League.
The Scots remain top of their group, but they had a fantastic chance to move clear when Charlie Mulgrew handed the visitors a first-half lead from the penalty spot.
But Israel responded superbly after the break, and Scotland were reduced to 10 men when John Souttar was shown a second yellow card when the score was 1-1.
The winning goal came when Hoops star Kieran Tierney slashed Kayal's ball into box past Allan McGregor and into his own net with just over 15 minutes remaining. Scotland could not find an equaliser and Kayal was given a standing ovation as he went off the pitch.
Unsurprisingly, a number of Bhoys supporters took note of the 30-year-old's display. Kayal spent four and a half seasons at Parkhead before leaving for Brighton in 2015. He made 132 appearances for the Hoops in all competitions and won four Scottish Premiership title medals.
And his superb performance against Scotland, several Celtic fans lauded their former star - some even suggested that Brendan Rodgers should look to re-sign the midfielder - and noted how he outperformed John McGinn, who had been heavily linked with a move to Celtic before he ended up at Aston Villa in the summer.
Here is what some of the Celtic fans made of Kayal's display...
Watched the 2nd half of Israel v Scotland. Celtic should sign that guy Kayal. Looks no a bad player and absolutely owned McGinn— Nobody (@JoePoibli) October 11, 2018
Should resign kayal— Robert sharp (@Sharpybhoy83) October 11, 2018
Imagine what it’s like getting coached by Brendan and Jurgen Klopp every day and then having to listen to McLeish when you go to play for your country !— Barcabhoy (@Barcabhoy1) October 11, 2018
Also Kayal completely outplayed McGinn tonight
Let’s have no more of this McGinn’s good enough for Celtic nonsense
Beram Kayal bossed our midfield there and tierney and Robertson may be our best players but that formation just doesn't work for us. Back three was exposed all night.— jamie bonini (@jambo2323) October 11, 2018
Kayal was the main man tonight class wee player— Andy Bhoy McNamaRA (@andymcnamara88) October 11, 2018
Kayal absolutely ran all over McGinn tonight.— Shaysda (@shaysda) October 11, 2018
Lovely link up between Kayal & Tierney.— (@shelbs_x) October 11, 2018
Hope you’re watching Brendan
