    Grand old team to play for
    If I was Calmac, I'd be * raging about being punted to left back to accommodate Ntcham.

    Couldn’t agree more , cm is our best midfielder, should never play left back again

    wasted tonight, playing him out of position for Ntcham was a ridiculous decision.

    Hopeless decision..

    The worst of it is that he never changed it when we went up to boss the middle of the park..

    We lose so much when he’s shifted back.

    Hindsight is a wonderful thing but so’s experience, we need McGregor in the middle of the park.

    We lose more dropping him from the middle of the park than we could ever gain having him plug a gap in the defence, it was madness when Rodgers did it last season and I'm genuinely shocked it happened again.

    Mental to throw him to Lb tonight, all though he’s better than Boli, we miss him in the middle.

    I honestly can't believe the decision to play him there tonight, it's totally beyond me. As others are saying, we're taking maybe our most creative player out of the position he's been playing well in. It makes no * sense to anyone who's ever watched us.

    Wouldn’t be surprised if he’s telling his agent to get on the phone to try and get a move sorted for January.

    Flung under the bus tonight all because a manager didn’t want to drop his pal.

    You'd have thought Lennon would have learned a lesson having watched Rodgers make a * of it by putting McGregor LB but obviously not.

    Indefensible.

    Has to be * smarter if he wants to win the league and dominate domestically.

    Can't blame him totally, but fek me he made football look hard tonight.

    The no 10 roasted him all night, positional wise was atrocious and even some of his general play was just abysmal.

    As said he needs to be used for his passing and getting into dangerous positions, that's what he excels in, but I'll reiterate what I think about him defensively...... Man down.

    Shoulda either been used in midfield centrally, even wide left at worst, if not then on bench.

    We would have benefited more having Boli at LB and CM in midfield as opposed to what Lennons brainfart decision.

    He's definitely one of the one's who'll want away..

    Lenny spoke about offering him a new deal. Good luck with that!.

    He was used as a LB before, it didn't work, so why the * would anybody in their right mind try it again? Not only is he not good in that position, it takes our best midfielder and probably the best midfielder in the country out of the * midfield. Utter stupidity.

    Punted to left back to accommodate a guy who looks like he can't run the length of himself. Must be * livid at Lennon.

    Him Ajer Edouard.

    Why the * would they stay in all honesty? Forrest would be guaranteed to be off as well if he wasn’t 28.

    I * detested Tierneys decision. I was very much in the ‘rat’ camp.... however, you look at the Systematic failings from the boardroom down. It’s an absolute laughing stock. No wonder the kid * off. Edouard, Ajer, Calmac and Rogic should be battering down PL door and telling them they want off. * is dragging them down as much as he is the club.

    If the rumours were true before and even if they weren't.....that's certainly broke them tonight..

    He'll be in door's * fuming about being stuck there for that game..

    Didn't get help once and moved after he was having a hard time gifting a goal and almost a penalty..

    Edouard is certainty as well after that..

    I don't think people realise just how damaging a result that was for us..
