Celtic found totally inadequate…Again
We we all had a good laugh leading up to this game. A right good laugh at the state of Rangers finances and a right good laugh at them being out of Europe..oh what a laugh ! The sad thing is all we done was set ourselves up for a massive fall.
So how did we do in Europe? Well we got beat due mainly to poor defensive play and a midfield who sat too deep. So that wasn’t the end of the world we still had the chance to go and beat Rangers, that team that are up to their knees in debt and about to go bust. So how did we do against them?
We not only lost but we managed to play even worse than we did in Madrid and the previous matches against Sion. There’s a big lesson here. Better to keep your trap shut until your actually good at something.
We played for 15 mins today but unfortunately the game lasts 90 mins and during that time you need to work hard. There is only one thing that stood out today and that was that just like the past few seasons when they won the league Rangers are far more hungry than Celtic.
I don’t know what the managers thinking was with the opening line up. Why sacrifice a 4-4-2 system that has seen us win the vast majority of our games? Why sacrifice Joe Ledley? What is wrong with playing Hooper and Stokes from the start?
It’s time to stick to our game and stop tinkering around to the benefit of any other team it’s not as if we were playing Barcelona or Man Utd.
A lesson should be learned today by all Celtic fans. Lets concentrate on the short comings and under investment in our club before we have a “laugh” at other clubs who are more successful at lifting silverware.
Rangers FC may be in a bad way but their team played us off the park today and showed a hunger that we could not match. Not only that they opened up a gap in the SPL giving themselves some breathing space.
Time for some inward reflection at Celtic Park
