Celtic controlled the first half at Easter Road without really troubling Hibernian. That control shattered when Nir Bitton and, more culpably, Scott Brown, combined to concede an unnecessary foul then penalty. The subsequent lack of urgency to follow Scott Bain’s save and daydreaming at the second Hibs goal was typical Celtic season 2020-21.
You were not surprised at the outcome. Before the game I wrote a piece on Newco’s accounts (it is important and I will pick it up during the week) but I knew when I was writing it there was a more than decent chance we would have to address this matter instead.
The players have first responsibility to resolve matters, then the manager, then the board. Doubtless there have been several iterations of attempted fixes, but none have been effective. It is not too late to rescue our season but it will be soon.
