Video: Calamitous defending from Celtic as Hearts take the lead

Celtic have conceded earlier in this evening’s Premiership opener against Hearts at Tynecastle. Ex-Celtic winger Gary Mackay-Steven popped up at the back post to give the home side the opener after the Celtic defence opened up and even presented the ball at the feet of the Hearts No.11.

After the ball was given away in Hearts’ half, Celtic’s defence found themselves in a 3v3 as Robbie Neilson’s side pressed forward in search of a goal. Carl Starfelt, on his debut, slid in the stop Boyce getting a shot away before Nir Bitton tackled the Irishman but presented it to Mackay-Steven, who was one of a few Hearts players queuing up at the back post.

The defending proves that reinforcements are needed as soon as possible as the backline requires extensive surgery. There is a lot of work to do but plenty of time to get ahead.

Come on Celtic!

  1. Let’s hope starfelt is nervous on his debut and getting used to the players around him because so far he looks like another duff our brilliant scouting system has found.

    Celtic Football Club have real structural problems across the entire organisation.

    I thought Midtjylland were about the same level as mid table SPL teams and we couldn’t beat them so why should we be surprised that we cant beat Hearts?

    There is no Director of Football

    There is no Head of Scouting

    There is no First Team coaches (Kennedy & Strachan failed that test once already)

    We are replacing sold players with lesser quality replacements

    We cannot retain youth players.

    For a LSE listed PLC the strategic management of Celtic PLC is a shambles.
