Celtic blasted as star wears AirPods on bench – and almost comes on wearing them

Celtic supporters were left furious after spotting Armstrong Okoflex wearing AirPods on the bench during their 1-1 draw with Hibernian – before the youngster almost forgot to take them out when coming on.

Neil Lennon’s side lost even more ground in the Scottish Premiership title race on Monday night, falling a staggering 21 points behind leaders Rangers thanks to Kevin Nisbet’s injury-time equaliser.

David Turnbull had fired them in front nine minutes from time, but 10 minutes later Nisbet pegged them back at Celtic Park to hand Gers an unassailable lead at the top of the table.

While they have three games-in-hand to play, the Hoops will still be 12 points behind their bitter rivals even if they win every one of them.

Celtic fans are becoming more and more disillusioned with their club this season, and some of them believe Okoflex’s decision to wear AirPods on the bench against Hibernian sums up why they’re in such dire straits right now.

The 18-year-old academy graduate could be seen wearing the wireless earphones while sat was amongst the substitutes in Glasgow, leaving supporters seething on social media.

And when he was subbed on in the 61st minute, Okoflex almost forgot to take them out before saving himself from what would have been a hilarious blunder.

The Celtic faithful certainly didn’t find it funny, nevertheless, and took to Twitter to blast his antics.

“Unprofessionalism is f***** rife within this club,” one fuming Hoops fan wrote.

“Why the f*** is a player sat on the bench with airpods in? Utter shambles Celtic are from top to bottom”.
