    Goals aside I thought we have looked pretty good. PSG are on a different planet to us let's be honest. If you don't get stuck into a team like that they will pick you apart and its a pre season friendly so we are hardly going to go thundering into challenges.

    Ntcham has been good as has Christie. Taylor getting into some good positions but final ball letting him down.

    A good workout so far.

    I do not have a fight in me, I am not a violent man. I would gladly punch neymars * lights out....

    i think weve done well against them

    lets face it this is a superstar team ala barcelona in its heydey

    definitely deserve a goal and eddie not laying it off to mo and the big mans header, were a little unlucky not to have one

    they really have to win a champions league with this team, how many millions did it cost ?

    Bitton is such a good squad player, could easily count him as a decent CB now, especially at SPL level

    I'm so undecided about Taylor

    He looks neat and tidy, makes himself available, works hard and clearly got a footballing brain.. I just don't trust him in the final third to deliver. Quite similar to Frimpers on the other side although wee Jeremy is a lot quicker

    Would be very happy to see someone snap neymar in half, given the French ain't reporting red cards then it's a free pass that shouldn't be squandered.

    Although the opposition is top-drawer and the game is only a friendly it's basically the same as any other European tie we play against anything other than the poorer teams. We are never solid enough defensively to frustrate the other team or to allow our own belief to really grow into confidence. As much as I hate giving praise sevco's way I must admit they are far better defensively-organised, compact and quicker at closing down in European games than we are on the whole. They don't give much away which gives them belief and also puts pressure on the oppositions mindset as they know that one slip of their own could cost them the tie.

    Reads the game so well and on the ball is brilliant, just gets caught positionally sometimes but he just needs more time at centre back.

    Considering they are a team that are aiming to win the champions League and they are playing against a Celtic team who a lot of the players don't have a long Celtic pedigree and even second rate, i.e bain. I'd say we played better if we are comparing our levels and cost.

    Have played well and looked good in possession.

    Ntcham has been our best player despite many people wetting themselves at the prospect of making him a regular starter

    Would love to see one of our players finally step up against these * and break that wee sister * weirdos legs. So disappointed we've came up against him 4 or 5 times now and he's still not been properly hurt

    Who in that team doesn’t have a long Celtic pedigree? Probably never had such a decorated team in our history.

    Enjoyed that half tbh, apart from their obvious elite level attackers we’ve matched up well.

    We’ve also riled the biggest sister * rat in fitbaw, which is always a bonus.
