Celtic: Fans react sarcastically to club tweet about Kundai Benyu’s birthday

Celtic: Fans react sarcastically to club tweet about Kundai Benyu’s birthday - Celtic

Celtic’s official Twitter account @CelticFC posted birthday greetings to the club’s midfielder Kundai Benyu, who turns 22 today.

He has had a somewhat abortive career at Parkhead thus far, making just four competitive appearances for the Hoops since signing in June 2017.

Two of those four appearances came as a substitute, which led many Celtic fans to react to the tweet by calling for him to get a game under Neil Lennon.

The reason why Benyu has not played for the Hoops since August 2017 is quite straightforward – he has been out on loan twice, firstly to Oldham for the second half of the 2017/18 season and then to Helsingborgs since February on a year-long deal. According to Transfermarkt, the Zimbabwe international is not due to return to Parkhead until the end of January.

The midfielder may have fallen out of favour at Celtic but his performances for Helsingborgs still earned him glowing praise from their former manager and Hoops legend Henrik Larsson, as per Daily Record.

These Celtic fans on Twitter responded to the club’s tweet by alluding to his scarcity of Hoops appearances, with some hoping for him to have featured in their final Europa League game, seemingly unaware that Benyu isn’t currently with the club:

Should Celtic re-sign Victor Wanyama?

Yes

Yes

No

Can you see Benyu ever making it at Celtic once he comes back from his current loan spell? Comment below with your views!
