I read that Rodgers was thinking of giving young Hendry a game on Thursday after Simonovic's poor display, but that would mean two very inexperienced defenders in him and Ajer.
My thoughts are he cannot do any worse than some of our defenders in the past in european games.
Boyata, Simonovic, Schiavencko and Lustig have all made howlers in various games.
But Rodgers and our defensive coach Kennedy must also shoulder the blame for our poor defensive record in europe.
Rodgers must be brave on Thursday and attack from the first whistle, if we lose two goals then score 3 lol.

I don’t remember Sviatchenko doing anywhere near enough wrong to be lumped in with Jozo and Boyata.

Timalloy couldn’t agree more about going at them from the start.
Look at the last Hearts game, we went for it and everyone on here was raving about it. Go with that Team against Zenit. Obviously Boyata is injured, so it’s between Jozo and Hendry to fill the gap.
There is no point in sitting back, best form of defence is attack.

I don't understand why Eric is considered shining bright and worse than what we have available at centre half? But then again I don't have a suntan or sparkling white teeth so it's not my problem to sort it out and not what I'm paid for! ☘️.

Eric is too slow and the worst choice out of all available centre backd.

11 Feb 2018 22:28:17
Slow agreed-the worst of our centre halfs? Bawz.

Can’t agree Erik is worse than boyata or Jozo! Like someone else commented on, Erik hasn’t made anywhere near the amount of howlers that those 2 have! He lost his way a bit under Brendan but on his day I would have him over any of those 2!

Kennedy has nothing to do with the defensive side of things although many folks do.

Erik is far to slow for the system the gaffer likes to play.
Our full back push way up the field and our centre backs need to have pace. Erik looks like he's towing a caravan when he runs.

The system we’re playing this season is as slow as a week in the jail, wee passes among the back 4 and then opposition press and we lump the ball or loose it.

Who among us will be relieved that Hendry will come in against Zenit? Not many I would gamble and Theron lies the problem. We have had a poor defence for years and our great hope is a young guy from Dundee who looked no better than what we had. Progress my arse. Shambles more like it. How many windows will Rogers need to show him what every other living being knows, he needs to buy good defenders who aren’t projects.

We need whoever comes in needs to play to their absolute best and even then it’s a tough one. Play like they have recently, Kilmarnock should have scored 3 and Thistle did the same. Of teams of that calibration fibd our defence a farce what will a good team do?

Apart from KT every other defender is on the star rating 4 mark for weeks. Against spfl teams.

Utterly farcical we are only thinking about bringing in a newly signed Centre back. Not even a shoe in, with our defence and he isn’t considered a guaranteed start says it all about the quality and wisdom of seeing him as the answer we need now. Beyond belief we are in this position, then I remember it’s Celtic and it all falls into place as our same old story of stalling every time we look like disappearing over the hill.

I can’t see us going through but if we play well we could get a point at home or better if Moussa and Sincy turn up.
