Celtic have been credited with an interest in the Arsenal right-back.

Arsenal fans are laying into one of their players on Twitter - and it doesn't exactly bode well for Celtic.

The Gunners kicked off their pre-season tour of the United States with a routine victory over Colorado Rapids in Denver early this morning.

There was a bit of Celtic interest in the form Carl Jenkinson, who started for Arsenal in the right-back position.

The Hoops are in dire need of a new right-back after losing Jeremy Toljan and Mikael Lustig, and The Scottish Daily Mail reported last month (16/06) that the 27-year-old was on Neil Lennon's radar.

 

But it doesn't appear as if the one-time England international performed well stateside, with fans of the North London club laying into him on social media.

It was only Jenkinson's second appearance for Arsenal since February and, despite it being a friendly, his performance against such an inferior side didn't speak volumes.

Celtic may not even be interested, but Lennon needs to put the pedal to the metal and get a move on with regards to signing a couple of right-backs, and the lack of headway over getting them is slightly concerning.
