Glenn Hoddle slams Celtic's Tom Rogic for being lazy against Molde

Celtic FC Stands 2

The 22-year-old Celtic midfielder has been criticised for his role during Molde's winner on Thursday night.

Glenn Hoddle has slammed Tom Rogic for being 'lazy' and not concentrating during Molde's winner against Celtic on Thursday night, according to ITV Football.

The Bhoys lost 2-1 to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men at Parkhead, with Rogic at fault for Molde's second goal.

And Hoddle has slammed Celtic's defending as a whole, going on to single the Australian midfielder out in particular.

Hoddle said on ITV's Europa League highlights show: "They haven’t defended well. It stems from the opposition not testing them week in week out. They’re not clearing their area enough.

"This is really poor defending [for the second goal]. Rogic is lazy, not even concentrating."

Rogic has been one of Celtic's best performers this season the Molde game aside and it was disappointing to see him make a real meal of defending the area for the Norwegian side's second goal.

The worrying thing for boss Ronny Deila is that Celtic's defending is no better in Europe today than it was over a year ago when the Bhoys were knocked out of the Champions League qualifiers by Maribor.

The Hoops suffered a big blow losing Virgil van Dijk this summer but that doesn't excuse every one of the Scottish champions' defenders simply forgetting how to defend...

And it certainly doesn't excuse Rogic's slacking for Molde's second goal.
