Small groups of Celtic fans turned up outside the stadium to make their feelings known after another disastrous result and performance.
Anticipating the reaction the club erected barriers on Friday at the top of the Celtic Way in a move that highlighted the gulf between the hierarchy and the fans who have been kept in the dark over a season of despair.
Last Sunday there was some angry scenes after the Betfred Cup defeat from Ross County but there was an air of resignation and helplessness among the fans that turned up after the 1-1 home draw with St Johnstone.

It took an 84th minute header from Moi Elyounoussi to prevent a fifth successive home defeat but there was no consolation as the lead at the top of the table grew to 13 points.
The anger and frustrations of the fans is split between Neil Lennon and Peter Lawwell with the club hierarchy appearing unwilling to take the decision that many fans would see as overdue rather than inevitable.
