Treble winning legend and captain of the 2003 UEFA Cup Finalists, Paul Lambert, has absolutely eviscerated the current crop of Celtic stars and has claimed they think they are better than they are.

Speaking on the BBC Sportsound podcast, Lambert took no prisoners as he claimed that some of the players have downed tools and Celtic will get rid of their wantaway stars in time for next season, “There’s one or two of those Celtic players playing hide and seek. Definitely.  They’re not turning up 100%.

“You’re playing for Celtic. It’s an institution. It’s not a club where you think ‘Well I can go easy and I can lose a game here and there‘.  I was watching the O** F*** game on Sunday and dear oh dear. I mean, some of them that are there I thought, ‘No you are better off just leaving‘.

“And they’ll do it! Celtic will get rid of them and some of them might not be good enough to go where they actually think they’re going to go. You’re only as good as a team that wants you.

“I think they’ve let themselves down, not them all, that’s not a criticism of them all. But what I seen on Sunday, I though well that’s not good.”

Lambert was part of one of the most talented and also toughest Celtic side’s I’ve ever seen in my lifetime and you could hear the disgust and disdain he had for some of the players currently donning the Hoops at this moment in time.

Here’s hoping the club weed out those that Lambert points the finger at and to be perfectly honest, there is probably only one or two that did not fall under his hammer.

The rebuild will be huge and we need people that will stand and fight, not cower and hide.
