Celtic have dropped down to third position in the Scottish Premiership table after a disappointing 1-1 draw away to Motherwell tonight.

The evening got off to a fine start at Fir Park with Ryan Christie netting a first half goal to give the recent Scottish League Cup winners the advantage.

However, a disallowed goal, missed chances and a poor Leigh Griffiths penalty eventually cost the Hoops all three points, with the Steelmen snatching a draw with just a few minutes remaining.

After energy sapping performances in Trondheim and at Hampden, Brendan Rodgers opted to rotate the team heavily, but many of the players coming into the side failed to impress.

One of the most criticised was Griffiths, whose general play was well below par, not even taking into account his missed spot kick.

If the manager is going to continue moving Odsonne Edouard in and out of the team then Griffiths will need to improve massively or we could struggle in the final third.

Fans did not enjoy the Scottish international’s performance, taking to Twitter to share their thoughts…

  • Think the boss has to have a look at himself after all he picked the team and I believe 6 changes from Last game is far to many plus bringing Sinclair on for nNtcham and saying it was tactical was he expecting him to win his first challenge for a loose ball all season or hide like usual plus he says it was back to how we where playing earlier in the season answer to that one Broony back in the team =slow slow and back

  • Sinclair should be transferred his displays are terrible Gamboa as well although he hasn’t had enough game time like Griffiths.
    We need a left wing man a right back a centre back as Boyata will leave and also a striker as a replacement for Dumbelle.

  • Too many changes ans players not match fit . Striker right back left winger and centre half needed if Boyatta goes but remember long way to go and in Brenden we trust.????????????

  • Sinclair has been garbage since the final few games of his first season. This is the pattern of his career. He should have been punted last January, He has Rotherham or Preston written all over him. Get 1.2 million for him and be done. d
