We’re virtually 24 hours on from Celtic’s 2-2 draw at Livingston and you get the impression many members of the Hoops support still don’t know exactly how to react.

Tom Rogic’s late equaliser felt like a winner due to what was going on at Ibrox, as Neil Lennon’s men took another big step towards the title.

But perhaps the time has come to put the hilarious Rangers result to one side and instead focus on what we witnessed at the Tony Macaroni Arena.

Here are three, cold light of day, things that we learned from Livingston 2-2 Celtic.

Elyounoussi isn’t a striker

Yeah, this experiment didn’t really work at all, Neil.

The Norwegian is an immensely talented footballer but he really struggled to form any sort of partnership with Odsonne Edouard up the top end of the pitch.

Leigh Griffiths contributed far more when he came on and should be seen as the main option to partner the brilliant Frenchman.

If Griff is fit, and we’re going two up top, then he must play with Edouard.

Frimpong is ideally suited to a 3-5-2

The flying Dutchman was electric when the came on just after the hour mark.

The game against sturdy Livi was crying out for pace down the wings and Frimpong supplied that in abundance, even if his final ball was perhaps lacking.

The youngster’s ability to get up and down the pitch makes him a perfect option for our 3-5-2 formation.

He looks far more comfortable than James Forrest in the position. Although it’s hard to see where else Forrest would fit into that system.

Food for thought.

Livingston are a pretty good team

Let’s face it, we often like to talk down the standard of the teams in our league.

That has never been more the case this season, where we’ve only dropped ten points all year.

Half of those have been against Gary Holt’s Livi, though, and they showed again last night that they are pretty decent.

Taking the small support and AstroTurf surface out of the equation, Livi are a really decent footballing side who make things difficult for the opposition both defensively and offensively.

If more teams were like them we’d maybe have a real challenge on our hands.

Let’s just hope we’re not sent to Almondvale for a third time during the split.
