Here’s what Celtic fans had to say about their side after the 2-0 win:

@MartinWardhaugh: “Performance not anywhere near good enough until the very late stages of the game. The subs win us the game in the end. Broony showing his importance to the team and two important goals from @Leighgriff09 and @KlimalaPatryk”

@jenliv84: "Tell you what, games like today reinforces how crap it is there are no fans - I’d be heading home covered in bruises and no voice!! One game closer.”

@ryan_carr3: “Glad we got 3pts but that was dreadful. Brown - can stop this narrative he needs dropped, changed tempo when he came on. Taylor - way out his depth. LG - needs involved, proven scorer. Eddy - needs to get his act together. Moi - miles off it. Christie - stop taking set-pieces.”

@_Dleaves: “That’s a huge 3 points considering! Superb from big Ajer in lead up to LG9 goal. Great to see him back and doing what he does best but got to give Klimala praise for that goal. Anyone else would stay down but he got back up and finished it brilliantly.”

@EtienneBojan: "One of the most abysmal 90 minutes I have ever had to endure in my life. Clueless. We fans do not need anymore red flags to understand how far this team has degenerated. Another positive result cannot mask how appalling that was.”

@xSophieBx: “Stunning from 89 minutes onwards.”

@AodhanHeaney: “That’s a champions performance that. Digging in till the very end when it’s no going your way.”

@MissMonica88: “A need to start drinking on game days again if its gonna be another season of last minute winners.”

@LiamDey: “I can't wait until we actually get going.”

@Callum_Boyle_: “Better late than never. Sounds like Edouard wasn’t on it again today but having just seen the the goals Klimala looks like a man with confidence. Took his finish extremely well and also delighted to see Griffiths on the score sheet too. Very important win.”
