Celtic were absolute shite. Fraser Forster was outstanding, which isn't really surprising as he's an excellent keeper. 

All round enjoyable match seeing the **** capitulate yet again. 

can't be "absolute shite" if one of our players was "outstanding".

defensively we were good, only moment of really bad defending was when we gave the penalty away but the wee man will learn from that I am sure

Nah he’s a shit manager. He’s playing Morgan as a striker when he’s not capable of it.
The guys a diddy who’s lucky to have inherited a very good team from a very good gaffer.
Morgan played there in previous games (including one in the Europa League) and did fine. You can't really blame Lennon for expecting more from him today.

Celtic were awful today. Rangers by far the better team. However, Rangers (Morelos) bottled their big chance. Equalise then and you had to fancy Rangers to win it against 10 men. As it was they hardly laid a glove on Celtic in the last 25-30 minutes. Celtic were much better with 10 men. 
There is no doubt that Rangers have improved progressively since Gerrard came in. However, clearly they aren’t quite good enough to overcome what ultimately was a poor Celtic side. They will point to the goal, which did seem offside. However, they did miss too many chances, including the penalty. It was a decent enough save but was a poor penalty to be honest. 
all in all, it was a poor game but I’m sure Celtic fans won’t care.

there's a big difference between playing in a front 3 to playing up top on your own.

4231 only works when you have a player capable of taking and keeping the ball under pressure up front. 

Morgan isn't a bad player, but his first touch isn't  one of his best assets and TBH i don't know how Lenny can't see that.

They’ve been average for the last 4 trophies, but they were not ‘very poor’ for the first two trebles.

 

Aye they were very good under BR. He was a very good coach.

Defo not as good as they were but will still win the league at a canter.

At this point I have to assume there's a Celtic fan high up in a more secret than MI5 agency like the guy in the X files

Which one ?   3 to choose from. 

Where did Gollum find an extra 6 minutes from in that second half BTW  ?

Thought it was odd that Tavernier didn’t take the penalty. But it was clearly all about Morelos. That’s all very well, but if you’ve got an ego, you’ve got to be able to deliver.

Quite a few players required treatment during the second half.

There were a few comedy moments in the Celtic defence today, not just one.

People's [Chris Sutton's] comments are irrelevant. 

We have to win games and win trophies, we haven't come here to be second best. We have to win silverware for the fans.

We have come a long way as a squad and we have to deliver, the fans have waited long enough and so have enough of the boys in changing room.

Over the piece this season we have been a lot better in terms of consistency and the mindset has shifted massively.

Collectively, Celtic were shit.  If the defence was that good, they wouldn't have gifted Rangers so many chances.  Morelos being terrible and Forster being excellent stopped it being a rout.  

Celtic created absolutely nothing until Edouard came on.
