    I don't think it was a 5-0 game yesterday.

    I thought we played ok at times, but we still look far too open and as we found out in Europe, better teams will exploit this.

    Good to see Ajeti looking like a penalty box striker. Doesn't look up to much outside it to be honest. Great to see big Duffy come in and show what he is all about, and happy for Klimala getting one after another horror miss before.

    We can play much better and hopefully we start to do so soon.

    Didn't think we were at our best yesterday but an other 5 goals and we look like we have goals from all over the park.

    We were very shaky at times it tbh that's to be expected, it's a new back 3 with a new Keeper and a LWB who isn't one so the fact we can still win that emphatically is a good sign for when it all really starts coming together.

    Win our two games in hand and and we go back to the top of the league and when it comes down to goal difference we will be well out Infront again.

    Although Dallas didn't have much influence in the game yesterday once again he books Celtic players for first tackles and let's opponents have a few niggles before a card comes out.

    Bolingoli away to the Turkish champions on loan with an option to buy.

    We've done well there and hopefully he does welk and we dont see him again.

    A matter of time now before we get the much needed left wing back.

    Looks like Benfica are going out in the qualifiers as well.

    Just shows what a minefield it is.

    Doughty showing up very well against West Ham for Charlton tonight. Two bids rejected. Just pay the money Pete before it's too late.

    Poor stuff tonight but another three points.

    As welcome as it is to see us win whilst not playing well, it is concerning that we are not clicking for any sustained periods.

    We are also giving teams far more of a chance against us than Rangers currently are.

    The amount of chances we are giving away is very concerning, give a team a bit of luck and we could easily find ourselves a couple down against anyone atm.

    I don't really mind not blowing teams out the water in away games like that as it's 10 men behind the ball in a very narrow pitch ( pitch size regulations need looked at btw) but what I do mind is how teams like St Mirren, Hamilton, Ross County have been able to transition from defending deep to throwing a good crosses into our box and causing us trouble.

    We are not defending as a side and the movement is very poor, defenders get the stick a lot of the time but out three CBs actually defended well they just had zero support Infront of them.

    3 points in the bag though and should go top of the league on Saturday and give Rangers a bit of pressure against Hibs.

    As much stick as our defenders get at times (sometimes justified) I agree that they are getting a lack of protection from the midfield.

    We are wide open at times and better teams counter attacking us will have a field day.

    We played well yesterday despite the nervy finish. Brown needs rotating more often though. He had a hand in their second goal.
