Celtic have dropped points in the Scottish Premiership for the second week running after a poor performance away to Livingston on Sunday.

Neil Lennon named his strongest team for the encounter against Gary Holt’s men, making just one change from the team that handily beat Cluj on Thursday night.

Whether it was that energy draining performance or simply an off day, Celtic weren’t at their best.

A difficult afternoon got worse in the first half when Ryan Christie received a red card for a studs up tackle. The moment of madness from the usually reliable attacking midfielder put us on the back foot. We never recovered.

With the game deadlocked at the interval, it was Livingston who made a lightning start to the second 45 minutes.

Scott Robinson smashed it past Fraser Forster at the end of a move resulting from a Kristoffer Ajer loss of possession.

Lyndon Dykes then ghosted in behind both the Norwegian and Christopher Jullien before lobbing Fraser Forster to make it comfortable for the home side.

The game would finish 2-0. It’s Celtic’s first defeat of the league season.

Celtic fans’ reaction

Ajer was much criticised by supporters for his performance.

It’s not his first poor display this season and some are now considering whether he needs a spell out of Lennon’s team.

Does the manager need to do something to try and get the best out of the 21-year-old again?
