CELTIC BRANDED ‘CLUELESS’

2

NEIL LENNON must be concerned about “clueless” Celtic as he attempts to get the champions back on track.

That’s the view of former Ibrox forward Brian Laudrup after witnessing the Hoops’ dire performance in the 2-0 loss against Steven Gerrard’s side at Parkhead.

The one-time Danish superstar admitted he couldn’t recall Celtic being so “weak” during his four years in Govan after joining from Fiorentina in July 1994.

Laudrup, 51, speaking to the Daily Mail, said: “I thought Glen Kamara was the best player on the park. Just outstanding. He was crucial to the control Rangers had.

“That control left Celtic looking pretty clueless at points in their attempts to produce an attacking threat. Even in my own time in Scotland, I don’t think I can recall them looking as weak in a derby performance.

“That must be very worrying for boss Neil Lennon right now.”

The nine-in-a-row champions limped through an insipid, uninspiring 90 minutes against their opponents and, remarkably, completed the game without a solitary shot on target.

Main dangerman Odsonne Edouard was left out following his positive test for coronavirus while with the France Under-international squad in Paris. The Hoops gaffer started with Patryk Klimala and Mohamed Elyounoussi starting the game up front.

Both were removed in the second-half with Leigh Griffiths and Albian Ajeti coming on, but by then the team were trailing 2-0 and heading for their first league defeat in 2020.

Now Lennon must pick up his players before the visit of AC Milan for their Europa League Group H clash in Glasgow on Thursday and the crucial trip to Pittodrie to face Aberdeen three days later.
