    What does everyone think of his debut?

    I thought he was decent, few good tackles and passes but got caught out of position a lot and he looks a bit lightweight. Oh, he's not as fast as I had hoped but that might be due to his fitness and the conditions:50:

    Decent if unspectacular, certainly better than Blackman's in any case!

    Think once he gets used to the pace of the game here he'll do fine! :50:

    Thought he looked good. Can see a lot of potential in him. Thought he lacked a bit of confidence in his body language at times but few games under his belt and I reckon he'll fit in well.

    It was a bad game for a few folk, Lustig included. It seemed like it was just one of those days.

    I'll judge him when I see him get some more game time under his belt, especially at Celtic Park, where we have one of the best pitches in the UK. We have to remember he's just come back from injury too.

    He's a growing player. Has 25 international caps already, and will only get better.

    Not the best debut today, but it was a difficult game to play him in. He's just returned from a break, as well.

    Give him time.


    ETA: Wasn't it his first game of this year? Flip me, talk about harsh. Didn't hear half the criticism for Izaguirre when he returned. Players can't return perfectly.

    Didn't think he looked particularly good but was his debut and we weren't at our best and were at a difficult away venue. Hopefully more to come.

    Just from appearance I'd say he looks more suited to playing CB than RB.

    Looked poor as did the whole side today apart from Wilson and Rogne i would have struggled to give any one pass marks today.

    Looked a player short on game time and hopefully will games he will get better ,Mathews nailed on right back for me .

    Poor game. Poor positionally and useless going forward.


    If I was basing him on this game alone then Matty, Wilson, Brown and Cha would be ahead of him for the rb spot. But im not going to judge him on this game alone :shamrock:

    I thought he was reasonable, no more than that. I certainly hope he has more in his locker than he showed today.

    He got out of position an awful lot and was very much at fault for the goal (not tracking the runner, which he did repeatedly today). More at blame for the goal than Blackman, I'd say.

    He was okay. Far better than Blackman on the left.

    ... Chris Morris?

    I know. He was still poor today. He has all the time in the world to improve but he was still poor today.
