Celtic could only extend their lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership to one point following today’s draw at Hearts.
Hoops goals from Nir Biton and Tom Rogic were matched by strikes from Sam Nicholson and a brilliant last-gasp Osman Sow free-kick.
Celtic’s faithful support were understandably disappointed by conceding a late equaliser in Edinburgh, and two men came in for more stick than others: Nadir Ciftci and Stefan Johansen.
Both players have endured a torrid season thus far, struggling for form and failing to win plaudits from fans and pundits alike.
And their performance at Tynecastle didn’t offer much in the way of a response, with the pair each putting in underwhelming and ineffective performances.
Ciftci started for the fourth match running, with Leigh Griffiths still injured, and failed to cause the home side too many problems, whilst Johansen filled in for the injured Brown at the heart of midfield.
By the looks of things, neither are particularly flavour of the month at Parkhead at the moment…
Get Johansen off! ?

Why's Johansen charging so far forward? Not got a clue. Keep your shape.

Ciftci isn't clever is he? Can read what he's gunna do a mile away.

Hope and pray Johansen will come good again but his ball retention has absolutely shocking recently!

Would we cut Ciftci more slack if he wasn't so fat? How does someone who exercises professionally end up that size. WTF does he eat?
