Impressed by the tempo and commitment from both sides, often friendlies lack both. I have this down as a really good workout between two well matched squads 
 

Agree. Enjoyed that. We’re looking harder to beat, taking account of the fact that Celtic are ahead of us in preseason.

Just talking about what I saw even if it sounds harsh from Celtic having 2 extra friendlies before this and us obviously not full strength.

Celtic dominated first half. But we looked pretty solid defensively. Very strong looking against a smaller Celtic side.

O'Leary, Atkinson, Baker, James and Weimann impressed me.

I think most of the others have been poor. 

442 with Weimann alongside Martin I am not so sure is the way forward. Not just because of that half but just not sure it will work.

I was thinking Weimann would play a bit deeper. Celtic having that extra man in midfield and we can't put any moves together.

But its only a friendly. Might all mean nothing.

I think if Nige wants to go 442 then Wells would work much better alongside Weimann. Obviously he isn't available for this game.

Don't panic, it's just a training session (Pearson says so)👍 

Plus we're without 2, if not 3, definite starters, so formations today will be just about getting everyone a game, not how we might set up in a few weeks time

Celtic fans are delusional on Twitter, talking as if we’re a pub side when this our first pre season fixture and they have a champions league match on Tuesday…

Just twitter back saying "We're just using you as a training session, mate" - that should set them right

Just a training session in reality but against a team about to enter the Champions League qualifying rounds, a rout wouldn’t have been a surprise, especially in our first match of pre season. Good job today lads.

Yeah could well mean nothing like I said. But I wouldn't be so keen on Weimann and Martin up top on the opening day.

Read some of the Celtic match reports. I’m not sure deluded is the right word but they certainly were not watching the same game. Did our goalkeepers have a shot to save? Did we not hit the post (twice may be) did we not have numerous chances. I know possession to some means domination, but I think that their European aspirations could be short lived!

Celtic will have difficulty playing in the championship
