Celtic carved a stupendous 3-0 win over Aberdeen at the Celtic Park and strengthened their hold over the top spot of the Scottish Premiership table. Goals from Mikael Lustig, Jonny Hayes and Olivier Ntcham, coupled with handsome performances of Brendan Rodgers’ men barely gave a chance to the Dons to have a say in the game.
Here are our Celtic player ratings from their win over Derek McInnes’ side.
Craig Gordon 7/10
Gordon managed to keep a clean sheet, and made one or two pretty good saves. However, his distributions looked questionable at times.
Mikael Lustig 7/10
The right-back was industrious and did maraud forward quite a lot and scored a goal which deflected off Dominic Ball.
Dedryck Boyata 6/10
Boyata found himself troubled quite often and frankly speaking, he was far from his best. He lost possession plenty of times and looked erratic.
Kristoffer Ajer 7.5/10
The youngster was resilient at the heart of the defence of the Bhoys and read the game meticulously. Ajer dealt well with the crosses and made some notable blocks and clearances to keep his employers unharmed.
Kieran Tierney 7.5/10
Tierney might not have been troubled much defensively but his performance whilst moving forward was certainly very inspiring. He kept trying to move the ball forward and manoeuvred juicy balls into the box.
Scott Brown 8/10
Rodgers’ men were stable in the middle of the park owing to the dominance of Brown. He dictated the tempo of the game, kept possession in check and made the right passes throughout the game.
Olivier Ntcham 9/10
There was no looking back once he found his feet in the game as he shielded the backline well and created space in the middle. Besides, he won possession many times, looked adventurous and scored the third goal of the night.
Stuart Armstrong 7.5/10
One must give credit to Armstrong for the work rate that he offered. He made some jaw-dropping darting runs and did impress with the way he kept trying.
Jonny Hayes 8.5/10
Hayes was certainly a live wire against the Dandies, timing his runs perfectly and ensuring adequacy of supply to Dembele. Besides, he also scored a goal in the second half and rightfully deserved it.
Scott Sinclair 7/10
The winger took a lot of time to settle and was found bereft of confidence at times. Nonetheless, he linked up well with Tierney and Ntcham.
Moussa Dembele 7.5/10
The Frenchman had more than a decent a game, although he failed to score a goal, as he made a lot of driving runs and looked sharp in his movements.
James Forrest 7/10
Forrest came on for Sinclair and fared well from the left flank by charging at the tiring defence of the opposition.
Callum McGregor 6.5/10
McGregor was used after Hayes was called off, and he did his basics right.
Odsonne Edouard N/A
The Paris Saint-Germain loanee replaced Dembele with less than ten minutes on the clock.
