Celtic have regressed so badly that clubs such as Livingston have free reign to ridicule us.
David Martindale’s side picked up two creditable draws in two consecutive matches against the Bhoys.
After eight straight wins in all competitions, that has extended their unbeaten run to ten-in-a-row. It’s a very impressive record.
They were quick to point that out in a social media post last night, with a cheeky image that everyone is taking as a dig at Celtic.

The social media team at Livingston have played a bit of a blinder here.
At the time of publishing over 5,000 people have retweeted the post, with over 20,000 more interacting with it. That’s what you would consider as ‘going viral’ in Scottish football.
Considering the only thing getting me through this season is a bit of gallows humour, even I can’t argue much with the post. It’s good engagement for the West Lothian outfit.
Celtic double-header vs Livingston just the latest setback
It’s all just a reminder of how far Celtic have fallen this year.
Last season we were beating Lazio home and away. Just over 12 months on and we’re being bodied on and off the field by, well, everyone.
Neil Lennon insisted last night that Celtic aren’t a shambles right now but he’s kidding nobody.
His second spell as manager has hit the rocks and the ship is rapidly sinking. He’ll be clinging to the wheel until the entire season is underwater, but the decision-makers at Celtic have to take action.
If Lennon is in the dugout against Hamilton next Wednesday then it’ll only be further proof Chief Executive Peter Lawwell and largest shareholder Dermot Desmond are completely out of touch with reality.
The rebuild has to start immediately, whether with a caretaker manager or a long-term successor.
