Another game, another routine win: Celtic 2-0 win over Motherwell extended their invincible run in the domestic league to 31 games. The Bhoys have enjoyed a sensational start under Brendan Rodgers after the Irishman took over the reins from Ronny Deila, accumulating an unassailable lead of 24 points over second-placed Aberdeen. Although they have been futile in replicating their domestic form in Europe, this side is seemingly likely to be a force to be reckoned in the near future.

Although the entire side has done their assigned jobs pretty well, here are three players who have been excellent and have been the standout campaigners so far this season.

Moussa Dembele

A proven goal scorer who is enhancing his CV every passing week and is seemingly making his way towards a sensational move to a top quality side in the continent, Moussa Dembele is leading the headlines of the major dailies whose pace and prowess up front has seen his stock rise rapidly. Leigh Griffiths netted 40 goals last season but has only been a deputy, courtesy the Frenchman leading the line and churning out displays which has led him to branded as the next big thing in the game. Should Celtic aim to make a mark in the Champions League next season, keeping hold of him would be of paramount importance.

Scott Sinclair

Celtic’s winger Scott Sinclair has been absolutely outstanding this season, forming a brilliant partnership with left-back Kieran Tierney and the duo has gelled well whilst making darting runs and tearing defences apart. Sinclair has been extremely prolific in the Scottish Premiership so far, finding the back of the net as many as 14 times and has created 5 assists as well. His pace, ability to bully defences, excellent one-twos up front and a poacher-like goal scoring knack (to name a few) have boosted the white and green striped team and not to mention that Rodgers has been getting the best out of the wide man.

Scott Brown

One might argue regarding Scott Brown’s inclusion in the list ahead of the likes of youngster Tierney or James Forrest, but let’s not forget the resurrection he has undergone at a difficult time in his career. The engine of Celtic’s line-up, the skipper has come alive and is vehemently focussed in getting his tasks completed after his international retirement. He passes the ball like a maestro, has a hand in initiating many goals which Rodgers’ side has scored and is a vital cog in Celtic’s machinery this season.
