Celtic drew 2-2 away to Hibernian on Saturday afternoon in the league – and some of the club’s supporters felt the Diego Laxalt was a positive from the game despite dropping more points.
The Bhoys found themselves 2-0 down entering the final stages of the game, but the visitors were able to turnaround the deficit with a 79th minute Odsonne Edouard penalty and Laxalt’s 91st minute strike.
Despite a late rescue mission to gain a point, there is huge disappointment from the Celtic fanbase after they failed to win and gave yet another boost to their bitter rivals Rangers.
Neil Lennon’s side stay second in the league table with 30 points from 13 games, while Rangers sit eight points clear of them having played an extra match.
A selection of Celtic supporters on social media believe that 27-year-old left-back Laxalt played well at Easter Road and he’s been impressive since he joined in the summer on loan from AC Milan.
But it’s not getting any easier for under-fire manager Lennon, who takes his side to face Sparta Prague on Thursday in the Europa League group stages and that’s a competition they’ve also been struggling in.
Here are some Bhoys fans discussing Laxalt:
Positive: Laxalt is top class. 🍀

Diego Laxalt must be looking around thinking what has he joined. Only one with pass marks for me today. Superb player.

Gonnae try and be positive..a point is better than nothing. That’s it. well that an Laxalt is a pler., anyway The board can’t give Lennon anymore chances after today, he’s failed big time. Not tactically minded, left it too late to change it.
