Celtic produced a predictable dire performance away from home in Europe on Thursday night, losing 3-1 against RB Salzburg in Austria.
Brendan Rodgers side started the match as well as could be expected after Odsonne Edouard raced away from the home defence to put the Hoops in front just a few minutes into the fixture.
From that point on though last season’s semi-finalists in the competition dominated and really kicked into gear after half-time, capitalising on poor defending to make it two wins from two for them in the group.
One of the players that particularly disappointed Celtic fans was Swedish international Mikael Lustig, who again defended weakly and failed to protect the right flank of the Hoops defensive line.
Many are now calling for him to be dropped with supporters taking to Twitter to share their thoughts on it all…
What’s it take for lustig to be dropped man 🙁 hurts watching him. Genuinely does

Managers have a 3 year life span at most unless they can make ruthless decisions on players who have had their day. No amount of burst baws on his heid, policeman hats will disguise that Lustig is done.

It's the hope that kills you.
That and the performance of Mikael Lustig

Brendan picks the team. Brendan makes the signings. Lustig and Hendry should be nowhere near our starting eleven. The buck stops with the manager as far as I'm concerned. Predictable as per fucking usual. #Dire

Rodgers persists wae lustig and should be held accountable for it, not for a second am i saying Gamboas is the answer long term but lustig offers absolutely fuck all and has done for ages at least Gamboa has a bit of speed and can put a half decent ball in.
