@PatrickMurphy89: “A convincing scoreline & decent performance. A good first half that showed signs of staleness in the second. We really need to improve our defending of set pieces as it has been a year-long issue for me. Let's find consistency now.”

@French_Eddy22: “Great win. Still raging at that Coles tackle on Frimpong.”

@TheTweetofShaun: Frimpong shouldn't be starting ahead of Elhamed. Barkas should be back in. We still desperately need Forrest and Jullien back. The defence is a mess but at least we look better going forward.”

@AdamCJMcLean: “Celtic’s best performance all season. Peak Brown giving the ball away only to rob it back straight away. Laxalt is actually a Duracell battery. Fit Moi and Rogic are Shaggers.”

@MoiMania_: “Not saying f*** all about turning points, Lennon stays after this result so let’s get through this international break and move onto hibs. Tough run ahead.”

@MartinWardhaugh: “Far from perfect at times, particularly in the second half, but that was so much better and was one of the performances of the season today. Much more like ourselves and great attacking play from Moi and Rogic once again.”

@Tjpapabear: “Thats more like it! Frimpong hasnt been same player as last year, thank god he dropped Duffy! Cant believe they nearly let Tam leave, been best player for weeks now. Id be sticking offer in for Gallagher in January, great out ball, aeriel threat as shown and good Centre Half!”

@tpwkcole: “It’s amazing what happens when Duffy doesn’t start.”

@mmcveighbhoy7: “Feel for Moi, mobile phone was completely OTT reaction, had we won that it wouldn't even been an issue, folk like Sutton looking for problems that aren't there. There are plenty actual problems to comment on.”

@_RH88_: “Elyounoussi showing the new manager what he’s capable of, I like it.”

@KieranS24351930: “Imagine how good we would be if we had a half decent manager.”

@JamieAnderson93: “Brilliant today! Mo silencing the press for the other night, @Tom_Rogic running the midfield & Laxalt top class.”

@Fran_Devereaux: "Great win. Hopefully big Juilien will be back after the international break to sort that defence out. Onwards and upwards #10iar”

@TwoWordsNGE: “Paper over cracks.”
