Celtic’s domestic season got off to the same predictably miserable start as their European ‘campaign’.

On Wednesday it was celebrating a win against a famous football shirt, tonight it was high-fiving as they enjoyed a winning return to the Premiership.

There were eleven players in Celtic jerseys tonight but the content and substance fell way short of those who wore the colours as recently as three years ago.

Apart from a moment of magic from Tony Ralston in the second half there was nothing to this Celtic performance until James Forrest and forced stoppage time saves from Craig Gordon.

Watching somewhere in the stand was who has made a less than impressive start to his reign as CEO.

With the executive salary comes responsibility. In three competitive matches Ange Postecoglou has yet to deliver a win with tonight’s performance typical of the shapeless, purposeless ‘style of play’.

At times Celtic were enjoying 70% and more possession but led by the lumbering there was barely a threat to Gordon’s goal.

Ralston, fourth choice right-back last season showed guts, skill and ability to equalise- after that most of his team-mates showed little interest in putting to the sword.

Supporter anger and frustration is growing. On Sunday 24,500 will be allowed inside Celtic Park to watch the game against Dundee.

Unless drastic action is taken quickly the pent up frustrations of last season will suddenly become very visible with the boardroom rather than the players or management the target for angry fans.
