    Don't think he's nearly as bad as most people seem to make out. He's being asked to play on the wrong side with a full back who's running inside when he gets the ball. No wonder he looks nervous on the ball, don't think Ajer would be much better under those circumstances.

    My biggest issue is that he doesn't win enough headers but that's not much of an problem when you paly a team like that who keep it on the deck. He's quick on the turn and that's somethingwe've lacked for a while at CB.

    Ajer is miles ahead of him in numerous ways.

    Don't think he's quick at all. I do agree that he's being used as a whipping boy but for me he has no stand out attributes.

    Not commanding in the air, lightweight, not great on the ball.

    Whether he'd be better in a different system I don't know. Strikes me as someone who you'd probably see the best of with your backs against the wall playing a tight defensive game, rather than asking him to play and run with the ball and make decisions.

    Hes one of those players who if you're the oppitisuton manager you'd be saying to give him time on the ball because he will lose it or make the wrong decision very often.

    Not his biggest fan at all but the last two games he's been absolutely fine. Was our best defender tonight.

    CCV gives the ball away just as much, if not more often. Aye he tries more progressive passes, but some of his passing is guff.

    Played well, had his customary lapse in the first half then grew into it.

    He’s a good last ditch defender but he still looks shaky in possession.

    Don't think CCV was that bad either tbh. It's a * weird one.

    I honestly think the tactics are * us and leaving these guys far too exposed.

    There’s always a mistake in him, that’s the issue.

    Maybe not but he was fine tonight. Three goals came down our right.

    Don't recall him being caught out defensively too often, if at all.

    Played OK, however, looks like the last thing he wants are those tight passes that this system of football produces.. Awkward looking.

    At one point - can’t remember the exact minute, probably 20+, he was in almost lwb position with the ball, tried a horrendous drag back of the ball, lost possession and had to be bailed out by Montgomery.

    Fair enough if this was one of his “better” games, but the guy is as feeble as a Thalidomide victim trying to punch you, and is all but guaranteed a major * up (well at least one) in most games.

    Not going to kid on I'm his biggest fan but I did really feel for our defence at times tonight especially the CB's.

    Something that really stuck out was just after HT....he picked the ball up and was pressed by 4/5 of their players, he did not have one out ball or someone offering for him. He ended up skinning 3 of them and then found where a Celtic player was hiding and was able to pass to them.

    You can't expect defenders to deal with that time after time. Where is the movement and options ahead of them.
