    How is he good attacking? He had so much room and time on the ball today (more than most on the park), and did * all with it. Turned one good cross.

    Good in first half but when he got tired and we were getting attacked he * up. Gets up to speed he could be good

    TBH, would've rather had Cha than Lustig.

    Better delivery than Cha and found a lot of space. Why did Vic of all people replace him? Vic has probably never crossed the ball in his life and he was lucky the the farts fouled him everytime he got into a position.

    Astonishing comment. He put in half a dozen very good crosses and we did * all with it. His cross for Ki's first header was a beauty.

    Best player in our side today, great going forward, seemed like our only attacking outlet. Made numerous great runs but nobody picked them out.
    Oh and to people saying about Cha should be playing ahead of him, don't talk pish. Lustig put in more good crosses in one game than Cha has in 2 years.
    Better crosser than Matthews also.

    Lustig looked a little flat, and he's short on match fitness, so that'd be why he came off.

    Plus, Wanyama is a big game player. Personally, I would've brought on Izaguirre, though. Can't fathom why we didn't see him today.

    I thought he was decent today. One or two shaky moments in defence but overall he put in a fair shift.

    I felt he had a good first half but faded after half time. I do not know if his weaker 2nd half performance was down to lack of match practice or having more defending to do due to their extra striker. Too early to judge a player though with so few appearances and little time to bed into the team.

    Doesnt matter if he is a big game player. He is never a rb, poor pass, average pace and never crosses. Couldnt pick a worse player to put rb imo.

    There was never anyone in there to hit, what can he do? mulgrew had the exact same problem... Do you have the same level of criticism in your head for him??

    By that stage, though, we were dominating possession, so it didn't really matter. Wanyama dropped into RB when we were out of possession, and switched into the middle (his natural area) when we were in possession.

    Wasn't really on long enough to give a proper assessment, though. I felt Lennon left it too late.

    Mulgrew's crossing is far more accurate than Lustig's. Hits the ball with much more power, as well, giving the attackers lest to do.

    Lustig comes across to me as a tame player, in general. Useful, but not a game winner.

    Thought his defending was shocking today, backed off far too many times. He was alright going forward but Hearts flattered him by giving him yards of space. Has this guy actually finished a game for Celtic? When a centre mid has to come on and fill your role then it's obvious the guy isn't a right back.

    I thought he was one of our best players probably best when he was on, was no real winger playing with him though.

    I thought he was one of our better players in 1st half especially was constantly on the overlap and put some decent crosses in which we should have scored from but we chose to go inside too often when we needed width to stretch the game imo.
