It has been well documented that Celtic are struggling for a quality left-back. Tonight Neil Lennon chose to drop the left-back he just bought and replace him with a midfielder. That midfielder played left-back before and it didn’t work out that time and it is also failing Neil Lennon so far tonight.

Brendan Rodgers tried to play Callum McGregor at left-back before at Ibrox and it didn’t work. The Bhoys got an early warning tonight when McGregor got caught out napping at the back post to let a Cluj attacker narrowly miss out on giving the Romanians the opener.

McGregor can’t be held to blame, the midfielder looks uncomfortable defending and his positioning looks like it could cost Celtic again. The Romanian champions are certainly aware of Celtic’s weak spot and scored from a goal into the same back post where McGregor failed to stop his man as he headed home to put Cluj one up.

Celtic fans have been reacting to Callum McGregor been asked to play at left-back tonight.

Lennon has forty-five minutes to save Celtic’s chances of playing in the Champions League this season, will he change the obvious and glaring problem?


  1. Just watched our team get beat tonight.if the money that we have in the bank is not spend on players and not the shareholders we will be going backwards.again we are in a position of power and we don’t want to go forward with our spending power. Don’t worry about the ten the nine might be gone if the men at the the top don’t spend the money to strengthen this squad a left back and right back are required now not in January Mr Lawwell .

  2. After going up on two occasions could we not have went to a back 5 and hit Cluj on the break. Scandalous shite on Lennon and his coaching staff’s behalf.
    I like Lenny but totally naive tonight.
    Scott Brown has to know better at this stage in his career .
    Calum McGregor had to be in the midfield.
    Totally demoralised after that scutter.

  3. am i the only tit that thinks this is celtics plan for 9iar……… as we play the same days and times as them………..ffs……fm…………3-2 up we should have went 4-4-2 or 5-4-1 to safe guard the win,but no,lennon thinks he’s the fuckin second coming,i would rather celtic in the group stages of the champions league than anything fuckin else,yet again we have been fuckin undermined by our own fuckin club………….shambles………..wish tay fuck desimond would sell his stake tay sum cunt that gave a fuck.HH

  4. Tell yous what you cannae blame lenny for that yous were all banging on about dropping boli cause he was shit now he’s been dropped it seems to be ah shock horror now yous got what yous wished for it’s lennys fault unbelievable blame them responsible for it the whole team weren’t good enough simple lenny looked just as shocked as the rest of us when he was interviewed they were far to passive in the first half the second half was much better but to not be able to hold on to that with 11 minutes left is ridiculous should of seen the game out and managed the game better end of rant hail hail
