Sure, Livingston set up to frustrate and were well organised defensively and played well. However, Celtic, even without the injured Rogic, still played positively and used their flanks effectively - had the requisite scoring opps to win this match! Celtic really have to win these kinda games v such limited opposition! The "icing on the cake", in a negative sense, happened at the very end of the game when the red-carded Livy defender, Obileye, gave away a pk and a huge opportunity for Celtic to just "take the 3 pts" and move on. And what happened next was just bizarre - a Greek player with "no bottle", Giakoumakis, misses the pen thereby giving Rangers the opportunity tomorrow to go 4 pts clear and they will take it!! Nuts!! Why Juranovic, who takes a good pen, wasn't given the opp, is beyond me!! To "rub salt in the wounds", the Greek lad "fluffed his lines" about a minute later by mishitting his shot in front of the Livy goal when it was easier to score - no redemption for the big man, not a good day for him at all. Ange's post-match interview was a "picture" and no wonder - totally let down by certain players, but didn't wanna say so - try to stay positive, no doubt. One positive to mention is that James Forrest entered the field of play after a long lay-off. His return could eventually offset this disappointment as long as he stays fit.
