Celtic produced a brilliant Europa League performance to defeat RB Leipzig on Thursday.

The Bhoys toppled the German outfit at Parkead 2-1 thanks to goals from Kieran Tierney and Odsonne Edouard.

Brendan Rodgers side were inspired in their pursuit of victory, and will now be confident of qualifying after finally hitting their stride this season.

There were brilliant performances all over the pitch from Celtic, with Tierney, Edouard, Ryan Christie and James Forrest some of the standout performers.

It was a great collective effort. However, not all of Celtic’s players were showered with praise after the game.

Lustig the ‘liability’

It wasn’t such a great game for full-back Mikael Lustig, who was at fault for the Leipzig equaliser from Jean-Kevin Augustin.

He has made a number of mistakes for Celtic this season, which makes it difficult for people to appreciate the good things he does the rest of the time.

Celtic fans react

During and after the game, some Celtic fans took to Twitter to have their say about Lustig:
