The pre-season expectations were simple for Celtic: win everything domestically and qualify for the group stages of the Champions League.
On the first count the titleholders can no longer achieve their objective—a League Cup third-round exit to Championship strugglers Greenock Morton saw to that.
The second was completed in August with a 3-2 aggregate victory over Shakhter Karagandy in the qualifying play-off round.
Despite this seemingly straightforward way of measuring Celtic's season thus far, gauging performance over a five-month spell is rarely so simple.
With that in mind, we've decided to rate how well Celtic have fared so far by dividing their season into six different categories (domestic form, European form, the first team, youth players, transfers and the management) and scoring marks out of 10 for each.
