In his first competitive game in charge of Celtic, Brendan Rodgers suffered a humiliating defeat at the hands of Lincoln Red Imps, a Gibraltarian football team consisting of part-timers.
Their 1-0 loss has been billed as the worst result in Celtic’s history, and one of the worst in European history. Brendan Rodgers could not have asked for a worse start to his tenure at the club, and the internet couldn’t have found it funnier. Here are the best reactions to Celtic’s defeat to the Lincoln Red Imps.

Lincoln Red Imps fans singing ‘sacked in the morning’ to Brendan Rodgers is an early contender for highlight of the season.. 😂😂😂— Footy Accumulators (@FootyAccums) July 12, 2016
Celtic have just been beaten by a team that shares their stadium with EVERY other club in their league.— Paddy Power (@paddypower) July 12, 2016

Reckon the Celtic legal team will be working over time tonight to check if those pesky Red Imps fielded an ineligible player.— Paddy Power (@paddypower) July 12, 2016
