John Harston reacts on Twitter to Celtic defeat at Hearts

John Hartson reacted instantly after Celtic were beaten by Hearts to urge his former club to “stick together”. 

Bhoys manager Ange Postecoglou has endured the worst start to his time in Scottish domestic football with a 2-1 defeat away to Hearts. 

The Hoops have already dropped down from the Champions League qualifiers to the Europa League qualifiers, but Saturday’s match was their first league outing of the season. 

John Souttar turned out to be the hero for Hearts, scoring an 89th minute header to give three points to the team back in the top flight after promotion last season.

It’s the first time in 24 years Celtic have started a league campaign with a defeat.

There is so much animosity building around the fanbase already, so an opening league loss won’t help matters. It feels like they need several new signings to arrive in the next few weeks to at least try get supporters back on side.

Ex-Celtic forward Hartson insists now is the time for everyone at Parkhead to stick together. 

“Transition period for Celtic… it will come together but how long I’d be guessing… takes work, discipline, organisation and good players with a strong mentality to win for Celtic… no blame game stick together,” Hartson wrote on his personal Twitter account.

Celtic defeat at Hearts shows truth of where they are

First of all, Postecoglou has been thrown under the bus with the squad he’s inherited. In fairness, it looks like he’s been given the benefit of the doubt by most fans.

However, the board are up to the necks in it.

It’s remarkable the squad looks this thin on the ground at the start of the season. If they start slowly, they are going to be playing catch up for the rest of the year.

They have two must-win games coming up. First of all, they face Czech club Jablonec on Wednesday in the first leg of a Europa League qualifier. That’s followed by their second league game of the season at home to Dundee.
