CELTIC won comfortably 3-0 in the end at Celtic Park today but their makeshift defence was a cause for concern a points. Jozo still coming back from injury and started again for Celtic with Ajer out injured, Jullien the only constant in the back line at the moment.
Bauer in for Frimpong who was injured midweek and Hayes being played as left-back while Greg Taylor sits on the bench.
It’s a peculiar one because anyone who questions Neil Lennon about his selection will be swiftly directed to the scoreline. However, it’s worth pointing out Celtic would have been punished by more clinical opposition with Hayes in-particular having an off day.
If the former Aberdeen player is on form, nobody can really complain but when he looks out of sorts against Ross County the decision to keep Taylor away from the team baffles many.
Some fans voiced their concerns before and after the game.
What does Greg Taylor have to do to get in the starting XI?
Absolute madness picking Jonny Hayes ahead of him

Celtic had access to every Greg Taylor game from the last few seasons, decided he wasn't better than Jonny Hayes at being a left back and then signed him anyway

Edouard the 🐐.
Folk kidding themselves on Hayes (hopeless) is better than Taylor. Break the bank on Benkovic. Send Bauer back.
Liam Boyce to cause chaos tomorrow would be good.
