"Celtic's final pass, the bit of link-up play, one-twos around the box - they've only had one incisive pass in the second half into Dembele's feet,” Duffy told BBC Sport.

“They really haven't been anywhere near their best in that final third. Their movement, Rogic has been too deep, he has got to be a lot closer to Dembele to link the play up. He's too detached.”

Disappointing performance

Celtic were expected to win against Motherwell, especially as they headed into the match on Sunday afternoon on the back of a 3-2 victory over Old Firm rivals Rangers at Ibrox in the Scottish Premiership.

Brendan Rodgers’s side's performance on Sunday afternoon was disappointing, and Rogic was far from his best.

The 25-year-old attacking midfielder has scored three goals and provided four assists in 15 Scottish Premiership appearances for the Hoops so far this season, according to Transfermarkt.co.uk.

Celtic are at the top of the league table at the moment with 68 points from 30 matches.
