@ProteanRedux: "McLean should get man of the match for Celtic.”

@hibeemg: "The sending off is a travesty. Giving the second penalty for Celtic was hilarious. I could see it wasn’t a penalty from where I was.”

@stevendd2179: "Can't fault the players efforts, you could see they had worked on defending parking the bus, ref had a shocker.”

@__James1999__: "this is on LJ today, done fantastic to defend that well for that long and then suddenly you’re taking off Miller for henderson and we start conceding goals.”

@Cammy68313084: "Honestly the conspiracy theory of the refs helping the OF was shown today. I’m definitely not going to complain the lads were class. LJ subs were a bit strange though.”

@JDHibs: “Result aside, I actually thought we played pretty well. They are just miles ahead across the field. Loads of positive performances. 3rd still within touching distance with 4 winnable games to come before the split!”

@liamcameron148: "Take the positives. Good to see miller n jdh back and performing. Kick on and get our form back for the last remaining games.”
