Celtic got what we deserved, which was nothing…
We fell to our first league defeat of the season ironically the scene of our only other domestic defeat, and just like that day back in August we got what we deserved and that was absolutely nothing.
It was the polar opposite of last weeks game in Perth. We were rotten first half last week and outstanding the second period. Today we were totally dominate in the first half and should’ve been three or four up at the break.
But the second half belonged to Kilmarnock and they totally dominated and deserved their victory, we can have no complaints. Some of the players have to look at themselves in the mirror. They are just not good enough to play for this club.
Nat Phillips is one of them. He came to the club with such high promise, but he will surely be sent back to Liverpool in January. Not just for his own goal, that can happen to anyone, but today like every other game he’s played in for the club he looked like a rabbit caught in the headlights. He really is dreadful. It’s like Shane Duffy all over again.
A combination of a bad finishing and dreadful defending cost us today. It makes for a horrible combination and one that can’t be allowed to continue. But calls for Brendan’s head are way over the top. We still sit top and this was our first league defeat of the season.
We also have important players to come back, and hopefully new signings will be added to the squad in January to further improve us. If not it will be a bleak outlook indeed.
Just an Ordinary Bhoy
