    Like others have said been poor for a wee while now.

    need a kick up the * if I’m honest, I would still be looking to bring in another centre half or at the very least be scouting one for next summer.

    we need players fighting for the starting line up and a bit more strength and depth, I think he is class on his day but has been off the boil for a while.

    He played well today. Silly rash challenge on Morelos aside.

    Thought he was excellent in the second half.

    Wee bit shaky first half. Second half he was back at his best for me, just steps in and takes the ball off * when he’s in that mood.

    People need to remember he's only 21 and is still going to make mistakes, as long as he learns from them and keeps at it he'll be top class. Today was a * day for defenders, pishing doon and windy as * main thing is we won.

    He made a few bad decisions today but I enjoy his 100% commitment.

    He is one of the most played guys in this team. Not just that, he is also a first team regular for the norwegian national team. Surely needs a rest against Cluj so he doesn't become jaded.

    He still has a lot to learn, the potential and talent is there but he really needs to harness that talent.

    I thought he played better once moved into right back and at 10 men.

    Really needs to cut out the diving into slide tackles, don't think I've ever seen a defender who does it so often in situations where there's absolutely no need.

    For such a tall lad, he should be doing better in the air, especially at set pieces.

    I could see the rash challenge out wide on Morelos coming a mile away, and so could Morelos. Stuff like that is testament to his age and experience.

    He still has all the attributes there and other than that moment I felt he played very well. Him and Jullien have created a strong partnership, for me.

    Just lacks that aggression attacking the ball in the air.

    All about the collective
    His defensive abiility is so over rated. People see his unquestionable ability on the ball and his stature and are blinded into giving his defending a free pass time after time.

    Its all well and good saying the going to ground will stop with growth and experience but youd have to think hes been told to stop doing this countless times now , but hes still at it.

    Also its pointless celebrating 70/30 tackles when hes losing every 50/50 header

    He’s a better right back than centre half.

    He needs to learn to get over the ball & header it down. He is always under the ball as doesn't think he needs to jump & it goes over the bar.
