After two league games, Celtic have only three points from a possible six. It may not sound like a disaster, but add it to the Champions League defeat to AEK Athens, the champions are not in a good place.
Drawing 1-1 away at Suduva in the Europa League qualifier is good, but not great, Brendan Rodgers will know they have to beat Hamilton Academical on Sunday (15:00).
Dedryck Boyata was not ready for Thursday’s game said the Celtic coach: “I need the players who are mentally and physically right for these important games. There is an interest in a number of our players, not just Dedryck. Once we knew he wasn’t ready, I had to focus on the team.”
