@terry_obrien86: "Much better in the 2nd half with the formation change & the substitutions! Plenty of work to do but that 45 minutes was more like #CelticFC. Rogic brought something different didn't he when he came on!”

@EtienneBojan: "Lots of positives to take from that. Celtic have “bottomed out” to use stock market terminology. The 4-3-3 or 4-2-3-1 is our optimal formation. It felt like watching Celtic again. Duffy a huge worry, though. One of the worst individual performances I can remember.”

@Ziggggysk: “Going forward: 4 at the back, more game time for Olly (but not with mcgregor+brown, it just doesn’t work—too slow) & more time for Rogic.”

@adriceltic: “After what we’ve seen today, I want to be optimistic but sadly I think there’s not much of a chance of us getting past the group stages this season.”

@daviemac79: “Sad to say again but Scott brown is finished at this level. He is only doing his memory a disservice hanging on. Sometimes gets away with it in Scotland but he is lost here.”

@Paddy7_: “Scott Brown is finished btw, a game with no mistakes against Hibs and being on the pitch when we scored the winner against St Johnstone doesn't change that.”

@whitisthecraic: "Shane Duffy will become the new Joey Barton if he doesn't get a grip soon.”

@GaelicRoadSign: "Remember we thought Shane Duffy was some kind of decent centre back. Heavily exposed last few games. Cannot believe Brighton pay him £45k per week.”

@__CalMc: “Since the scatter gun is out as well, 15 minute cameos are Leigh Griffiths’ contribution and it should stay that way.”

@Skelly1876: “Everybody gan daft at this as if Milan aren’t having an absolutely exceptional season Loudly crying face walked inter all over the pitch on Saturday.”

@Gav_HQ: “Why were we going to let Tom Rogic go? The guy should be a starter in this Celtic team. The most creative player we have.”

@RobertStephen27: “Tom Rogic is a game changer to us when he’s fit. Get him starting every game from now on.”
