Former Celtic striker Cillian Sheridan has aimed a light-hearted dig at the club over their failure to wish him a Happy Birthday.

The Irish frontman poked fun at the fact that Celtic's social media posts have become a stick for supporters to hit them with after poor results in the Premiership, with manager Neil Lennon and his players being heavily criticised.

The posts have become a running joke among fans and Sheridan, not shy about having a laugh on Twitter, couldn't resist.

On his 32nd birthday the former St Johnstone ace joked: "Sitting, waiting, for my Happy Birthday post from Celtic". He accompanied the caption with pictures from a popular 'Lonely Pablo' meme with his face photoshopped in.

Fans loved the hilarious post and it racked up more than 8,400 likes and almost 500 shares.

It comes as Celtic lost away to Ross County on Sunday evening thanks to Jordan White's header that sees the Hoops languishing 18 points behind rivals Rangers who need just seven points to win the Premiership.
