HIBERNIAN didn’t do a lot of pressing in the game and went really deep, especially in the second half in their Sunday game against Celtic.
The league leaders couldn’t break down the Hibs side and only left with a point on the day.
The Hoops didn’t play well. There were far too many players off the boil at the one time and any intensity or purpose to our game plan looked lost.
Hibernian chose to highlight one of the very few times they managed to press Celtic, right at the end of the game.
This moment really summed up our day in many ways.
As Bhoys Analytics wrote on social media, there was no need for Celtic to be in the situation they found themselves in.
There was a route out of the very average press but we looked incapable of getting the ball up the park.
Awful to watch. Starfelt under no pressure takes a touch and then goes back to Hart.
Ball should be taken side on so he can see whose available
Slow lethargic and a complete lack of discipline to the style of play wanted by the manager

Celtic earned a reprieve in the way of a two-goal comeback from Motherwell at Ibrox to keep their three-point lead intact with ten games to go.
It’s going to be a nervy run-in for all involved but the performances have to improve.
