    Agree with your overall point, but to be fair, Soro and Turnbull were the midfield for the game at Ibrox.
    Soro, Turnbull and Rogic are very much first team players at the moment.

    Was a pretty good performance, especially in the context of it being at Parkhead, and after our recent run.

    16 shots, 7 on target, 10 corners. Defence was solid. Certainly tried to win the game.
    Maybe I see it differently but thought that was a tough watch. Passing not great and midfield non-existent. A real lack of quality and composure IMO. We need about 3/4 new players and to start not for the squad

    Off topic. There's some eye watering comedy on laffback, apparently the result tonight was a disaster for both teams pure comedy gold verging on some serious mental illness 🤣🤣🤣

    Makes my grey days go away at times 😆
    Quite cute that they take such an interest in Premiership football. They can dream I guess.

    The quality of final ball and delivery needs to improve considerably. We have two very good strikers up there who are being short changed by their team mates with the standard of crossing and passing.

    Had some good spells during the game and fell out of it at times, but showed a bit of resilience in not giving up the ghost after conceding from the free kick.

    Thought a draw was about right all things considered.

    They were very depleted but letís not pretend that the team they put out tonight was some poor inexperienced reserve/youth team.

    Frimpong, Duffy Laxalt & McGregor are first team players

    Turnbull, Rogic, Johnstone and Soro arenít in the strongest 11 but are part of the main squad and would walk into any other team in this league with the exception of Rangers.
    Apart from Harper and Welsh, all the other 9 players who started the game tonight for Celtic played in the Cup Final against Hearts. 4 as starters and 5 came off the bench.

    I didnít find it tough to watch at all. As I said, I thought it was a pretty good performance. Conditions not great either, pitch was heavy to start with and got cut up badly as the game went on.

    Midfield definitely wasnít non existent. Gogic was really good, Newell played well until he went off and Hallberg got forward quite well.

    Thought Gogic did well tonight. He was the one that really wanted to press and win the ball but I didnít think the other two went with him. Hallberg runs about a lot but I think itís largely ineffective and Newell floats in and out the game too much for me. I just think we struggle to build the play up and it inevitably gets passed back to the centre halves to shell a big diagonal up the park too often.

    A little off topic but a goal at Parkhead must surely have Nisbet ahead of Shankland now in the race for a place in the Euro21 squad. He is joint top scorer in the league on 11 having played fewer games than Tavernier, 2 of those goals against Celtic. Shankland I believe has scored 3 all season.

    100%. Shankland shouldnít be anywhere near the Scotland squad. Whether Nisbet has done enough is a different story but between the two of them there can only be one winner.

    Correct. I have no clue what Hanlon was thinking. He jumps a couple of inches and he stops it.
    Whys it always the way when your own team loses a goal, itís always someoneís in our teams fault.

    If Mallan scored that freekick at the other end, nobody would be saying that a Celtc player in the wall didnít do well enough. Weíd just be pointing out that itís a beauty of a freekick. Which is what Turnbulls tonight was.

    Shankland was the darling of the press for a few months. I never saw the hype about him even when he was scoring goals in the championship. No chance that he will be in the squad for the finals. Nisbet maybe has a chance as we are short of goalscorers

    Did you watch the free kick again? The players either side of Hanlon jumped and he stayed on the deck. The ball went a few inches over his head. Iím just pointing out what happened. Hanlon always jumps when heís in the wall. I donít know why he didnít tonight. It was a great free kick but could have been blocked.

    I said in my post it was an ok result. So no, not thinking itís a poor result.

    The performance was pretty crap and that makes the result disappointing to an extent as they were there for the taking. As Iím typing this, Stevenson is on the tv saying the exact same thing basically.
    No thatís fair enough.

    I still dispute the reserves argument. Their starting 11 had those 2 young lads and Johnston, the rest were first team quality and would walk in to any team in the league.

    The only way that result would have disappointed me would have been if we were playing their under 18ís, otherwise I can be content with a point at parkhead.

    Not a bad performance by Hibs, but there's so many parts to our game need improving. Corners are absolutely brutal. Another 10 tonight and never posed a threat.

    When out of possession we're so passive in the middle of the park giving teams far too much space.

    A couple of decent signings during the window though and it could turn things around.
    Good summary exactly the areas to improve on would also include crosses from general play in the last 5 mins or so Mallan and Nisbet great areas out right both poor balls in. We are close to being very good imo.

    Would be surprised if Kevin was that close to the squad needs to have a really hot streak to end of the season and needs to improve general game.

    Iíd agree, I donít think heís done enough either. Weíll be taking Dykes, McBurnie (lol) and Griffiths and then Iíd suspect the other attacking players will be made up from guys like Forrest, Fraser, Christie etc rather than Nisbet.
