These were the best jokes after Lincoln Red Imps 1-0 Celtic, as Brendan Rodgers loses his first competitive game as manager of the Scottish side – a Champions League qualifier against a semi-professional team from Gibraltar.
Lee Casciaro scored the only goal for the part-timers from a country with a population half the size of Celtic Park in the first-leg defeat that was labelled “embarrassing”, despite initial fan optimism:
Can't wait to see the Hoops play tonight I believe Brendan Rodgers is the man to take us @celticfc into the champions league group stages

And congratulations for the part-timers came from all quarters:

That awkward moment that the SAS had more shots in Gibraltar than Celtic did

Brendan Rodgers could have selected 11 names at random from the Celtic season ticket list and they would have won this game with ease.

Celtic have just been beaten by a team that shares their stadium with EVERY other club in their league.

Lincoln Red Imps are a top class team and Gibraltar is a tough place to visit.
We have actually done well to only lose 1-0.

Semi-professional Lincoln Red Imps have beaten Celtic 1-0 tonight. To be fair, they are the best team in Gibraltar.

The Imps' left-back was driving a taxi until 1pm today apparently. A colossal humiliation for Celtic.
