When Celtic had their 11 corners, Sevco had 11 men in the box closing down any space. When Jullian did get his head on a couple from a standing jump, due to the space being closed down, they had the luxury of having a man on the correct post to knock it off the line each time.

When Celtic were defending corners we kept 2 men outside the box but when the goal was scored,2 extra men were dragged outside the box to stop a short corner. That left only 6 defenders and the goalie defending the corner and all the space in the world was left for katic to have a run and jump for their goal.

Celtic were unbelievably tactically nieve because Mcgregor was covering the space where katic scored but by them taking a short corner, he was taken away to leave all the space in the world for them to exploit. It was a well thought out set piece by sevco and not just a hopeful ball that Celtic would normally put in at corners. It was school boy defending by us and it feels like they took us for dummies and we fell for it and it cost Celtic the game.

Ajer should have defended the corner much better than he did.

{Ed007's Note - Or we could have set up to have men on the posts like most other teams. Think back to the pressure we were under with corners in the early stages of the LC final, that's all down to how we set up to defend them.}

I have said this before . maybe old fashioned lol but always a man on the post at corners!

Always taught to have a man on at least the front post.

But ajer should also have done better.

I know you can't legislate for individual errors or players failing to do the basics; but once again it goes back to a coaching team not learning lessons about how the opposition play and shape-up, or how to alter things when our weaknesses are being exploited?

Men on the post or not as a centre half your job is to not allow the player you are marking to score and Ajer failed to do this.

For something so simple it's cost us a goal at one end and kept 2 out at the other end. It's no secret we struggle to defend set pieces so why not have someone there.

Although I agree with having defenders on the post at corners for me Ajer was partly at fault for both goals first he turned away from the Kent shot when he could have blocked it then didn't pressure Katic for the second I had hoped he was going to be a big player for us but now I'm not so sure.
