BBC Sport Scotland pundit Tam McManus has torn into Mikael Lustig for his performance in Celtic’s 2-0 win against Aberdeen at Pittodrie on Sunday.

Lustig, 31, put on an absolute horror show at right-back at the weekend as he was constantly outclassed by Dons star Gary Mackay-Steven.

The Sweden international was eventually sent off in the second-half for receiving his second yellow card for a foul on former Parkhead attacker Mackay-Steven.

McManus was in a brutal mood on his personal Twitter account on Sunday and slammed Lustig for being a detriment to the team.

“As I was saying. Lustig a liability now,” said McManus in reference to one of his earlier posts.

Lustig will miss Celtic’s Premiership fixture against Dundee at Parkhead on Wednesday – and that may be much to the relief of fans who have been calling on Brendan Rodgers to axe the senior player for the past few weeks.

The former Rosenborg defender was abysmal in the 3-0 defeat at Zenit St Petersburg last Thursday, as well as other members of the first-team squad.

But Rodgers shocked fans by not dropping him, Jozo Simunovic or goalkeeper Dorus de Vries, who all had stinkers in Russia as the Bhoys crashed out of the Europa League.

Lustig has been ever-present for the Hoops this season.

He has made 40 appearances in all competitions and scored three goals.

One of Cristian Gamboa or Anthony Ralston are likely to be called upon to replace him while he serves his one-game ban.

In other Celtic news, controversial TalkSport host Adrian Durham has claimed that this key Bhoys man must quit Parkhead at the end of the season because of  Rangers.
