'Rangers won't win an easier league', 'Unacceptable becoming acceptable at Celtic': Fans frustrated by 0-0 Livingston draw at Parkhead

Celtic fans were angry after the scoreless draw with Livingston – and quick to point out the statistics of a poor season so far.

The point is Celtic’s second from a possible nine in 2021. They trail Rangers by 20 points and had 13 players unavailable for the game.

Others pointed out a win rate of six from the last 20, or 53% this season. And most believe the number is up for this league campaign.

@kamalone71: “Shocking. This season hasn't been good enough from the board to the pitch. In a year where history was to be made once again.”

Celtic produced the football equivalent of waterboarding against Livingston

Graeme McLachlan: “I don't think Rangers will win an easier league title than this again.”

@flang100: “It’s now getting beyond embarrassing, the best thing that can happen is the season getting called early or it could end up they win it by 20-plus points.”

Mark Stevenson: “Gave the league away this season. Still, what an achievement of trophies over the last nine years.”

Danny O'Sullivan: “Why is the unacceptable becoming the acceptable at Celtic absolutely no ambition or drive whatsoever. Not even trying to achieve mediocrity. Bad days.”

@JoeDabernig: “We haven’t been unlucky this year. We’ve been run like a clown show right from the start of the season.”

Scott McMaster: “We are going to be so far behind for years unless major changes are made pronto at director and management level."

@keedboyle: “Six wins in 20 and Neil Lennon is still the manager of Celtic Football Club.”

Matt Casey: “Celtic have only won 53% of their games this season. 17 out of 32 games. We’ve won six out of last 20. I hope Lennon has got used to sitting at home on a Saturday.”

@celticghirl_bee: “Embarrassing. This season is well and truly gubbed. We need to work on next season before we mess that up as well. Us fans are paying a fortune to sit at home and watch this. Feels like we're being taken for complete mugs. Sort it out!”

@eightsixonesix: “Fair play to Ralston. Played well in the circumstances. As did the other young boys drafted in. Failures by the club and management gave away these four points.”
