Reading between the lines, does that mean that your owning up that something wasn’t right and it showed up in the body language. Tell us what the problem is then

Worries me when he says that our performances have merited better results both in Europe and domestically. I ain’t seeing it.

In the reverse fixture against Lille, the two sides played out a 2-2 draw at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy, with Mohamed Elyounoussi on the scoresheet twice.
Should Neil Lennon be replaced by Celtic?
Last night was a dead rubber. Turnbull not playing all season speaks volumes. Let’s face it, it couldn’t have got worse. It’s all about the next 5 games.

Over their last 13 matches in all competitions, the Hoops have managed to win just three times, including the 3-2 win against Lille.
In the Scottish Premiership, the Hoops head into this weekend currently trailing Old Firm rivals Rangers by 13 points, however, they do have two games in hand (per BBC).
Time to go NL.
