CELTIC FANS are having their say after watching Celtic put in a below-par performance before and after playing with ten men.
The bhoys looked out of ideas, passing sideways and backwards as a resolute St Mirren side defended for their lives.
It’s the same old story with Celtic when it comes to breaking down teams who have no intention of coming out to attack.
Celtic beat these teams with ease in their invincible season, but are finding it increasingly hard to do so.
Last season we didn’t perform to a high standard and the bhoys have now started this league campaign showing the same problems.
There is a lack of ideas and confidence to break down a defensively set up side who are willing to run and block you for 90 minutes.
Some fans have deemed the game itself awful and are looking around for what Rodgers needs to do next in order put fear back into teams who play us.
One fan bemoaned the amount of talent we have lost in Roberts and Armstrong without replacing them.
Too easy to blame Ntcham red but St Mirren defended so deep the extra man didn’t matter.
Fact is we cannot break down defensive teams in final 3rd like we did 2 seasons ago.
We have mostly the same players mid/attack. So what has happened to #Celtic ffs?

What an awful performance. Forget the red card, we were humming

Brendan normally honest after the game, but I think he was deluded tonight
Ntcham deserved the red card, Celtic were awful and didn't create enough chances to deserve a win

When you take away the goals and creativity of Dembele, Roberts, Armstrong and don't replace their quality you get turgid, pedantic performances like that. We are going to see a lot of Celtic performances like that awful, awful game this season, away from home especially.

That was complete anti football from St Mirren. Even worse that Celtic couldn't break them down. Terrible all in.
