Celtic were rampant today and were unlucky not to have had 4-5 more goals, particularly from the first half’s effort which saw the teams head to the sheds at just 1-0.
Celtic came out hard in the second half and the pressure told with Brown scoring from a deflected shot after persistent pressure before James Forrest added a brace to secure not just the points but a 5 goal buffer on the second place team who play lowly Hamilton away tomorrow.
Hayes was himself crocked but managed to play to half time before being replaced by Taylor who fitted into the team seamlessly and was unlucky not to get his first goal for the club.
The star of the show however, was young Frimpong on the other flank, his pace and trickery were constantly applauded, for a player bought for under a million pounds he looks to be the signing of the last window.
Man City slapped a reported 30% sell on clause on the starlet and you can see why, the Bhoy is going to be worth a fortune in the coming years, his quality in defence is one thing, his movement in transition and attack is amazing.
He will need to get more protection from referees than he received today having his shirt pulled by players left in his wake, he was a handful all day and unlucky not to have scored himself.
We have a glut of games between now and the 29th of December showdown vs the Newco and this was a perfect start, next up is a home game to lowly Rennes with top spot in the Europa League a possibility.
Whoever is selected, should they play the way we did this afternoon, the points will be secured.
