The best way to defend is to Attack

#1
Yes, Jock said this, and has since then, has been the Celtic way... Jock Stein invented the right back and left backs running forward and attacking, now a lot of teams use this method with good effect. But, if you do this method, you need a good defence. We have goals in this team, but what we now need is a good defence. So, if we play this way, which the fans now demand, we really need a good defence, which unfortunately at this moment we do not have. Get the defence sorted, with the team we have, and we will win....Your Thoughts.....

I agree even Billy McNeill (RIP) deployed it when he took the centenary double with Anton and Morris

Here's a thought, lennono, maybe defenders should be on the pitch to defend as it's a wee bit difficult to do it from the bench.
