@LewiePeterson: “Can accept #Celtic losing today due to the circumstances but its hard to watch such an insipid and tactically inept performance. Really worrying how 3-5-2 has become the only formation now and far too many passengers.”

@martin_compston: “Well that was p*** poor viewing could’ve been more, no complaints. No doubt with eddy, Forrest, Christie and Julien available we’re a different team but a big enough squad to play better than that, far too flat from the off. First time in ma puff happy the pubs are shut.”

@EtienneBojan: “You ought to be ashamed of yourselves. From the Board to the Managerial staff. Clueless. You’ve sold us short after we’ve bought so heavily into all the b******t you’ve f****ng sold us over the summer.”

@20MinuteTims: “Throwing Duffy up front is a total Hail Mary. Throwing your big centre half up front is 1990’s stuff. That was as abysmal, uninspiring and pedestrian as it gets. Big questions to answer from this Celtic team. 0 Shots on target all afternoon. Rangers didn’t have to work for it.”

@TheCelticWray: “That’s 4 out the last 5 they’ve bossed it, we got away with one in the LCF. No excuses, just not good enough.”

@Mikey_Bhoy_1993: “In 14 months we've lost at home v Sevco x2, Cluj, Copenhagen & Ferencvaros. For the 1st time since 1995 we've lost consecutive home Glasgow derbies. Love the guy but Lennon is a hindrance to 10IAR. Gerrard has his number. Only hope is we remain more consistent vs other 10 teams.”

@wayneevent1: "We weren’t beaten today, we were embarrassed. Sick of this Celtic Da remember the 90s p**h from a manager who it takes 55 minutes and to concede 2 goals before making a change. He’s became a dinosaur and he’s costing us.”

@AtheistGeekJock: “Not one player looked like they had an ounce of fight in them. Brown looked disinterested. Why was he not kicking them up the arse when we went 1-0 down. He’s done. Might have the odd good game against the likes of St Mirren or Hamilton but for big games he’s nowhere to be seen.”
