“That’s on Lennon” – These Celtic fans react to dismal first half showing vs Rangers

Obviously Celtic’s preparation for the game has been far from ideal and a lot of starting players are missing, but there’s a worrying trend emerging from the games against the Rangers.

Steven Gerrard is clearly capable of setting his team up with a shape and a plan, while Celtic just look completely disjointed and it’s hard to figure out what Celtic are trying to do.

It’s happened again today where there’s plenty of chances for the midfielders to get on the ball and drift forward, but they’re met with two static strikers who want the ball to feet and it’s very easy to defend against.

The passing has also looked sloppy and that’s not helping matters, but it’s understandable that the fans are not happy with the showing so far today:

It’s clear that something needs to change either with substitutions or with a change in system or approach, but history does suggest that we may need to wait until later in the second half to see that.
