Jury still out on Boli so the loss of KT a worry and significantly weakens the team.

That's decent money for a class player who has missed most of the year's football and not yet back in full training.

I wasn't impressed by Tierney's replacement V Cluj, on that showing he's not even good enough to displace Hayes who only deputises at LB. But the new RB looks the part.

Is he any good?  Thought Greg Taylor from Kilmarnock would have been the more obvious choice.  He's a Scotland international and very comfortable on the ball. Plays LM as well.

I watched a bit of him the championship, playing in a quality footballing team under Dean Smith.  He looked a good player and a real prospect.  He had a bad injury though i believe so not sure how that has affected him.

That was a bizarre wall that Motherwell set up to defend against Lee Griffith's free kick, leaving a clear line to the bottom corner. Did his shot take a slight deflection?

Issue for Celtic today is no defenders on their bench.  Might do V Motherwell but not great as league going forward.

As well as that, a mid-fielder playing centre back and Ajer, a centre back, playing right back.

Lawell waiting to see if Celtic can scrimp their way through to Chmps Lge group stages, then he might splash some cash!

Celtic never capable of giving a good account of themselves in the CL.

Europa league is the peak for Scottish teams. At least they should avoid the 6, 7 or 8 nil drubbings.

No surprise in fairness.  No investment in quality players.

As I said, tried to scrape through last year with an average team and got dumped out by the Greeks.  Tried the same this year, but got caught out in an earlier round even.

Blame board and 9 in a row could be in trouble this year also!
