Former Scotland full-back Alan Hutton was not impressed with Celtic’s defenders for blaming each other during their side’s 2-2 draw against Hibernian last weekend.
Hutton not impressed
The Bhoys had to come from 2-0 down to draw in the game in the 91st-minute having gone behind to goals from Jamie Murphy and Kevin Nisbett as substitute Odsonne Edouard scored a spot-kick and Diego Laxalt left it late to ensure that the Hoops shared the spoils.
However, Neil Lennon’s defence were playing the blame game after Murphy scored the opener for the hosts, even the goalkeeper could be seen screaming and shouting at the players in front of him.
Speaking to Football Insider, Hutton was not impressed with what he saw and stated that Celtic need to play more “as a unit.”
“I think you have to defend as a unit, there’s no point in blaming each other,”
“It’s such a difficult period, you need to be strong, you need to have a good foundation to play forward and it doesn’t look good when everybody’s shouting at each other, I don’t like to see that, especially teammates when they’re blaming each other.
“Just take responsibility for your own part in the pitch and just deal with it, that’s all you can do is win your battle and hopefully the guy next to you does the same and then you can move forward.
“This blame game, I just don’t like it, I don’t like seeing players just throw up their hands and go in huffs with each other, it just doesn’t look good.
“Imagine you’re a fan and you’re seeing that, it doesn’t look good for anybody involved. You have to be together, win, lose or draw, you must be together as a team.”
Transfer Tavern take
Celtic were already playing catchup to Rangers in the Scottish Premiership table with games in hand, and last weekend’s result leaves them 11 points behind their arch-rivals.
Huge pressure is on the Glasgow club at this time, with the prospect of 10-in-a-row slipping out of their reach. Tomorrow night’s game in Prague is massive and is one that could really make or break their season.
