    Who is the worst ever Celtic player that you've seen wear the hoops?

    I'm expecting a lot of more recent names to dominate the poll due to the average age of users on the forum.

    The immediate names (in no particular order) that spring to mind are:


    Regi Blinker
    David Fernandez
    Raphael Scheidt
    Adam Virgo
    Mo Camara
    Du Wei
    Willo Flood
    Dion Dublin
    Ian Wright
    Steven Pressley
    Chris Killen
    Morten Rassmusen
    Evander Sno
    Danny Fox
    Rab Douglas
    Magnus Hedman
    Henri Camara
    Dominic Cervi
    Mo Bangura

    Can't think of any others at the moment.


    Two older names that seem to be mentioned a lot as pish players are these two, but I can't recall ever seeing them play.

    Tony Cascarino

    Wayne Biggin

    He did score in the League cup final to be fair but I think he was in his late thirties when he came to us, so was well over the hill. Don't think he really added a lot to the squad.

    Bangura is a bit harsh as he's still with us and has been injured. Plus the majority of the time he only got 5/10 mins at the end of games.

    He was alright in the games he played.

    Played more games at centre half for us, and was pretty strong....plus scored the winner, so cannae really complain :icon_mrgreen:

    Mo Camara is THE worst footballer I have ever seen play at Parkhead.

    Gerard Butler is THE worst person I have ever seen playing football at Celtic Park .......couldnae control his baws with a baseball glove on!

    Douglas is pretty harsh imo.

    Olivier Tebily was rotten, If your putting the likes of Dublin, Wright etc then I would include Ljunberg, complete waste of time

    I remember Adam Virgo playing 2-3 blinding games in a row when partnering Stan Varga at centre back - infact he won man of the match at a game v Motherwell away.

    Whoever told the boy he was a striker though was clearly full of smack.

    Dublin was alright. Played up front and centre half. Wouldn't say he was in with the worst players.

    The ones in bold were all fine at the very least. Didn't exactly have sparkling careers here but there have been a LOT worse.

    Looking at players who played a decent number of games and at least got a chance, I'd need to agree with Mo Camara as being horrendous. I'd definitely say Camara has been the worst in the last 15 years.
