Celtic fans here in the Tavern are in dreamland, after their sides current record-breaking run was extended after last night’s performance.
The Bhoys have been in the form of their life since Brendan Rodgers took charge of the club back in 2016, having taken them on their current domestic 69-game unbeaten streak that sees them go 5 points clear at the top of the table with a game in hand.
Although fans are loving the current situation that their side finds themselves in, criticisms are becoming apparent on the defensive front after many supporters feel that they’re in need of a new defence, with the January transfer window just around the corner.
After letting in 21 goals in 6 games during the Champions League group-stage, to allowing a 2-0 lead to slip last time out against Hibernian, and now conceding again in a sloppy manner, in a match they easily could have lost against a struggling Hamilton side, the gaffers choice to play midfielders in defensive positions recently is what highlights the current defensive problems here at Celtic Park.
Nevertheless, after leading The Hoops to the promising position that they currently find themselves in, you can’t take anything away from Rodgers time in Scotland, as the Celtic Twitter account let everyone know that this was Celtic’s 69th-game unbeaten, after their 3-1 win against Hamilton Academical.

So, without further ado, here’s a look at what Celtic fans made of the news.
Great but get that defence sorted in January

Wish we could string something together in Europe. I appreciate the CL level we've came across is Space Race stuff

69 Wins but could easily have slipped away from the bhoys last night!! Defence was abysmal!! Hamilton could easily have had 3 more goals! Woodwork saved us and shots running wide. But please BR fix the Defence!! #invincibles #COYBIG
