In the midst of a famous victory for a club that pays HMRC in full Chris McLaughlin couldn’t resist striking a low blow.
While BT Sport were lavish in their praise of Celtic BBC reporter McLaughlin decided, given 140 characters, to highlight Anderlecht’s problems.

Rather than look at Anderlecht’s failings perhaps the man from the state broadcaster could have highlighted the fact that a Pot 4 club had won so emphatically against a Pot 3 club away from home.
All across the competition Pot 4 clubs have been taking a hiding with the BBC quick to jump on Celtic’s defeat from Paris Saint Germain.
A whole raft of stats at BBC Scotland went into the shredder last night as Celtic recorded the one of the best results in a decade by a tax paying Scottish club.
Perhaps if the Easdale brothers had invested in Celtic McLaughlin may have looked on Celtic’s win with a more favourable tone.
No one in Belgium pays the BBC TV licence/tax.
