    Wish people would stop saying he's 19 including Ange, :56: he's 20 now..

    Wouldn't be surprised to see him start tonight..

    Being 20 year old and being a winger normally equals inconsistent performances unless you are a superstar, so he can be cut some slack. He had a bright start to his Celtic career but I genuinely thought many Celtic fans were very premature by announcing him as a great player. He has a long way to go and lot to prove if he is going to be an established first team player for Celtic, especially with the return of James Forrest.

    He's got a long way to go yet. Sooner Jamesy gets back the better

    Had a great impact when we signed him but he's been miles off it for weeks now. 2 goals in his last 13 games.

    Said it before but he just doesn't strike me as a natural winger. Quick but not that quick, crossing is largely pretty * and he's not the type to skin a player and dribble past them. And some of his passing is really poor.

    Hopefully Forrest gets up to speed and we can go with him, Kyogo and Jota. Johnston and Abada in reserve.

    Could very easily have had a fine assist to his name had Bitton not once again failed to control a simple pass. Was in and out of things today and looks a wee bit more hesitant in taking his man on than he did at the start of the season. Still though, extremely young and has plenty of potential.

    There's a player there but he needs time. Forrest needs to start once fit.

    Said it before but his all round game is brutal. Unless he’s getting on the end of a cross or playing it across goal he’s redundant.

    All he done today was get in the way.

    Forgot about the Bitton failure to control the ball from about 8 yards out. If Bitton wants to win the Celtic fans over scoring a goal today in a tight match against Livy would have helped immensely but he * it. Just seems to be the sort of guy that can be decent but never quite makes the grade.

    Would prefer him through the middle rather than Giakoumakis, he's got good movement and would give defenders more to think about.

    Outstanding finish for the goal but thought he was horrific tonight.

    That goal will give him confidence. He's needed one like that..

    Needs to work on varying his play when going at his man..

    Was excellent again..

    Rapid, a threat and an end product.

    Boy is good for a goal but his overall play is still very poor, but still learning.

    I thought he did ok, few bad moments but took the goal well and an assist and carried the ball forward well a couple of times.
