Reliable journalist Tam McManus has said that Celtic have reasons for concern following their defeat at the hands of arch-rivals Rangers in their last match in the Scottish Premiership. He has also said that Rangers were superb in the encounter.
According to his column in the Scotland Herald, this was the worst performance by Celtic in recent times. He said, “For Celtic it was, without doubt, their worst performance domestically under Brendan Rodgers. Time after time they have consistently turned up on the big day but not on Saturday. Second to every ball, they just didn’t look up for the game and in an Old Firm game that is unacceptable to the punters. Celtic are still top of the league with a game in hand and the treble remains odds on – so it’s far from panic stations – but there are still causes for concern that Celtic need to fix in January and the rest of the season.”
He added, “Firstly, Celtic’s away form has been abysmal this season. They have dropped a staggering 18 points on the road already and that is just not good enough.”
He also suggested, “Two full-backs, a striker and possibly even a centre-back have to be priority because Celtic now have a serious challenge on their hands to maintain their domestic dominance. But the right players have got to be recruited and that’s were the scouting network now needs to step up.”
