CELTIC handed out a lesson in why you shouldn’t continually talk a good game for two months when you will find it very hard to back it up.
The bhoys went into the game at Ibrox as underdogs and when the team lineup came out they were lapping it up because we had three derby debut defenders and a midfielder at centre back. In the end, the four bhoys in defence all had top games.
Nir Bitton having to go off with over 20 minutes still to play was a big issue. However, Moritz Bauer coming on for not just his derby debut but his Celtic debut looked composed and gave us a glimpse as to what he could do.
One thing that not a lot of people have picked up on as a talking point was one particular throw-in late in the game when Celtic were in their own half.
With Celtic looking to push out of their own half, the on-loan Stoke defender sent the ball flying all the way up the pitch from deep in our own half. The power generated behind it was quite something – it didn’t amount to anything in the end and that’s maybe why it hasn’t been talked about but having this in his arsenal could be a game-changer.
We all seen Stoke with Rory Delap back in the day, if this lad plays and taking throw-in’s further up the pitch then Celtic can become very dangerous from a simple throw-in.
Have a look at this.
