Would it be the same 2-0 scoreline at parkhead? The home support, watching on Celtic TV hoped so – but many picked issue with the team selection from Neil Lennon, starting with the goalkeeper position.

@mark_ramsay12: “Why is the number one keeper on the bench and the cup final keeper not even in the squad?”

@T841967: “Let's just pull the goalkeeper and put three up front.”

@50shadesofhaigh: “Scott Bain wins Lenny’s goalkeeper lottery for the second game running!”

@SanBernardino9: “Is this a first? An unchanged side for two games in a row?”

@Seany_67: “Still don’t understand why Barkas is dropped again.”

In defence some called for Stephen Welsh and a change at the back too.

@_RH67: “The seasons done man why is Duffy still playing?”

@CelticFc_Core: “Poor Stephen Welsh man.”

@eightsixonesix: “Our best CB playing at RB makes my teeth itch.”

Heather McGoldrick: “A wee bit concerned why laxalt is on the bench for the 3rd time?”

Others called for youth to be given a chance.

@manky_bianchi: “With 14 Friendly matches left we could’ve started Robertson and players that WANT to play for that jersey.”

Davy Coss: “The league has gone. Why not give Karamoko and Okoflex the rest of the season to see what they can do?...or is that what a decent manager would do?”

Ryan Bonnar: “Lack of decent wingers have not helped this season, probs the best line up we could hope for.”
