Marvin Compper leaves Celtic as existence finally confirmed

Marvin Compper has exited the building.

The alleged German stopper, who spent more time in Brendan Rodgers’ kitchen eating lactose-free cereal than he did playing football, has signed with MSV Duisburg in his homeland.

A picture on the club’s website confirmed Compper’s existence after 18 months in Glasgow, during which he played one game, a cup-tie against Morton in March 2018.

He has signed a two-year deal with the German third tier side, who announced it on the Twitter page saying: “Wow!” Pretty much the same reaction as most Celtic fans.

Compper, believed to be a Lee Congerton recommendation, was signed to add some experience to Celtic’s backline, but the move was a bust from the start.

Capped once by Germany in 2008, the defender was injury prone and he was out almost immediately on arriving in Glasgow.

In October 2018, he hit out at then boss Brendan Rodgers for not picking him, claiming even his teammates couldn’t understand why he was left out of the side.

Neil Lennon opted not to call upon his talents either when he took over in February of this year.

Compper was spotted on the pitch in May, cavorting with the Scottish Premiership trophy, presented after Celtic had beat Hearts in the last home game of the season.

Compper was a perplexing signing from start to finish and is now someone else’s problem.

Farewell, eh, Martin, we’ll never forget ye!
