BuzzBomb, I've got a question that you may be able to shed some light on.

Much was made last season, and rightly so, of our awful defending particularly losing goals at set pieces.

Whilst our defence, as well as the whole team, has improved hugely under Ange this season, set pieces seem to still be an achillies heal.

Are you able to advise of the goals we've conceded so far this season, how many/ what percentage have been lost to set pieces please?

The Most are from set pieces Al hazard a guess.

Celtic have conceded 14 domestic goals this season and I can think of at least 5 goals have come from corner kicks and an injury time free kick against Hearts.
Celtic have also conceded from 2 penalty kicks.
We also looked suspect when Dundee scored with 2 headers from cross balls.
And that’s not counting the goals Celtic conceded in Europe this season.

Nice one Buzz, that's much appreciated.
I actually thought it may have been a few more than that (36%) .

I'm pretty sure other than the 2 penalties every league goal conceded has been from a cross into the box. Unless someone else can remember any other goal from open play? That being said we aren't anywhere near as vulnerable as last season.

It was mentioned in commentary a few weeks ago that Celtic had lost 8 league goals from crosses into the box and we’ve since lost another goal in Dingwall from a corner kick.
Hibs scored from their only corner on Sunday.
I think Joe Hart needs to start coming for corners inside his 6 yard box because that’s where the ball is going from now on, after the last week ( Ross County and Hibs ) when he’s failed to command his 6 yard box from corner kicks and Joe needs to start taking the pressure of his teammates at corner kicks.

We've got the best defence in the league.
