Pat Bonner says Celtic fans did some thing in reality ‘strange’ for the duration of the Motherwell game

The Celtic win over Motherwell was once one that confirmed Brendan Rodgers’ crew has the mettle to take this title combat to the wire

Brendan Rodgers surprised everybody via making 4 changes to the group that drew in opposition to Kilmarnock the previous week and after any other tepid first half, it appeared that these adjustments had made no longer one bit of difference.However, one of these changes the  Celtic supervisor made is one that the fans have likely been crying out for over the closing few weeks.

And when he was once subbed off, it was met with a response from the Celtic followers that left Pat Bonner absolutely baffled.

Celtic followers booed Tomoki Iwata’s substitution vs Motherwell

Tomoki Iwata got his first begin for Celtic since December and he certainly confirmed what the crew are missing in the center of the park.

As per Fotmob, Iwata was once rated 8 in the seventy-seven minutes he was on the park. With a passing accuracy of 93% the Japanese worldwide made eight passes into Motherwell’s ultimate third, made three clearances, received a hundred percent of his tackles and made 11 defensive actions.

He genuinely was having a good sport and when he was once taken off, Bonner stated he was surprised at the reaction of the Celtic fans.

Bonner said [Scottish Football Podcast], “There was once a reaction, obviously, when Iwata used to be taken off and McGregor went returned into the middle. It was once strange.

“There was a huge reaction. Needless to say thinking that things had been going quite well and he didn’t have to alternate it at that point.

“McGregor bought again where he commonly plays. You’re now not gonna have any difference from the way he performs with Iwata.

“But he didn’t want him back there due to the fact they had so tons of the ball anyway at that stage from that perspective. They desired him in that support-forward position.

“But yeah, listen, that was once a form of a abnormal reaction.”

I suppose Iwata’s stats show exactly why the fans have been unhappy with his substitution. However, what’s essential to understand is that he hadn’t played a minute considering the fact that the 2-1 defeat at Kilmarnock in December.

He will be missing match health and the reality he lasted seventy seven minutes bodes nicely for the Dundee recreation on Wednesday night time where I would assume him to start again.
