John Hartson has urged supporters not to panic over Celtic’s 50% win rate in the opening SPFL fixtures.

There were mitigating circumstances to the defeats at Tynecastle and Ibrox but yesterday at the Toni Macaroni Stadium there was a mixture of anger and frustration over a 1-0 defeat to Livingston.

Almost all of the 7,000 away fans at the match yesterday knew that it was going to be a tough task on a horrible surface that has denied Celtic sides often enough in the past.

AngeBall didn’t work yesterday, Livingston played as predicted, they nullified Celtic and there seemed to be no variation or change of plan from the hoops when it was obvious that Plan A wasn’t working.

Hartson watched a thrilling, in parts, performance from Celtic against Real Betis three days earlier but told Sky Sports that the new manager and his ways require support and patience.

Yes there is a few teething problems when you are not winning games but in general I think the crowd, myself, I think that we are all behind the manager and it is going to take a bit of time. I think that he needs that support from everybody.
