Celtic make worst league start ever

The worst start to a league season in 23 years. No domestic away wins in seven months.

Six losses out of seven on the road in all competitions this season. A fourth defeat in five games.

The statistics do not make pleasant reading for Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou, with the 1-0 reverse at Livingston

leaving his side languishing in sixth place in the Scottish Premiership after six games.

“We’ve played well in every game,” the Australian told BBC Scotland, while questioning his side’s consistency in the league.

“It’s not good enough. If we want to be successful we can’t continue not picking up results in these games.

That’s the test for us.”

Are Celtic on the cusp of finding their feet and going on a positive run, or do their problems run deeper?

Last season, Celtic finished 25 points behind Rangers and ended the campaign without silverware.

Neil Lennon left as manager in February, with John Kennedy steering the ship until the summer.

Yet, throughout the campaign Celtic only lost five league games – three of which were to Rangers.

They have now suffered three defeats already this season.

The last time Celtic started a campaign so poorly was in 1998-99. Back then they were the ones who had just stopped Rangers’

attempt to win 10 titles in a row, but drew four times and lost twice in the opening eight games of their title defence.

This season they have played free-flowing attacking football at times. They scored six against Dundee and another six against St Mirren.

Even in Spain on Thursday away to Real Betis, they were 2-0 in front and had plenty of chances, but lost the game 4-3.

That attacking verve was missing in West Lothian.
