Don't stand off them, go for it Celtic !
Considering how shambolic that first 20 minutes were to go in at 1-1 is very good. Last 15 minutes or so have been very encouraging and half time has probably come at the wrong time for us.
If we press them high 2nd half there is something in this game for us, they look really uncomfortable when we’re in their faces.
We rode our luck that half, hopefully the shape and positioning is far better after the restart.
Liked how high up the pitch we were at the end there. Dont think we should be concerned about runners in behind
Happy to go in level. Need to stop making silly defensive mistakes. Do that and we can win this game.
Yes as a Celtic player
That will do so far.
Our fantastic forward play sadly only matched by our horrendous defending.
2-2 looking a good bet.
What a half....
Take that for half time.
Gave them far too much respect. We’ve grown into the game, though.
Well capable of getting a point if we don’t drop back.
1 moment of magic from James, I can’t believe how nervous we have been
Only 2 things I think a bit off are big Forster and Hayes.
Forrest looks like he has beating of their defence, Ed doing well and Christie has been good upto the point he has to pass the ball, far more energy than Tam but the same big difference in his ability to split a team like Tam can.
We’ve been poor but have come into a bit..
They are poor at the back but so are we, hope this is the last time we see Hayes at LB think that debate is over.
very pleasing ! only half time tho .
why do celtic fans say that about decent sides we play ??? lol
if you say they are not that good and then they go on and beat us your saying a * side beat us
if we beat them that are not that good then our team gets no credit
its a lose lose
lazio are a top side playing against far superior sides domestically week in and week out
Defense was a bit unfocused. But, Lazio slowed the pace themselves, and we took the chance. Decision making in the final third could be a bit better.
We need to be better with passing on the half way line as it will cost us and disappointed with set pieces as Lazio seem to be getting a bit of joy there .
Thought we got our arses felt the first quarter, have done really well to play ourselves into the game. Been pretty even the last 20 minutes.
Aye we started cagey. Isn't our game..
Soon as we grew in to it a bit we looked much better on the front foot..
They've looked very nervy before we even scored actually. We just weren't clinical enough with the final pass..
Should have loadsa belief now. We've rattled them despite giving them an easy start..
Good aul scrap. Lazio like us are leaving big pockets of space. They look more nervous than us and more wasteful. I'd be delighted with 1-1. Hopefully big Fraser has all his mistakes out of the way.
Settled now, wasn’t sure if we’d get a grip in the game but we did and that will serve the players well for the rest of the game knowing they can get back in to it. If the flow continues like it did after the goal, bar that wee flurry they had til we re-settled, we have a strong chance of coming away with a result here.
