Christie With 8, Edouard Gets 7 | Celtic Players Rated In Their Comfortable 3-0 Win Vs Hamilton

Celtic travelled to SuperSeal Stadium to take on Hamilton in the league game and went on to secure a routine 3-0 win. They hardly broke a sweat in the game as their opponents didn’t provide any resistance.

The tie was lopsided as the Hoops enjoyed plenty of possession and Hamilton were looking to sit back and defend. The Bhoys had their opponents pinned down and opened the scoring in the thirteenth minute via a cleverly worked short corner which was finished by Ryan Christie after some good work by the likes of Edouard and McGregor. Martin Canning’s men hardly provided any attacking threat in the first half, and he would have been glad that they went in just one behind at halftime.

The second half followed a similar pattern, and Celtic secured the tie after the second goal was scored. Leigh Griffiths scored just minutes after coming back from an injury, and that is a big positive for the side.

Here is how the Rodgers’ men fared.

Craig Gordon 6

Hardly had anything to do in the game. The Hoops could have even played without a goalkeeper in goal as Hamilton didn’t have anything to offer up front.

Kieran Tierney 6.5

Was a constant threat while going forward but lacked his usual cutting edge to deliver a killer pass.

Dedryck Boyata 7

Recycled the ball well at the back and was aerially dominant. Not much to worry about defensively.

Filip Benkovic 6.5

Made one rash foul and gave a free kick in a dangerous area. But apart from that, a solid game from the Leicester City loan star.

Mikael Lustig 6.5

Could have scored in the first half after he was one on one with the goalkeeper. Much better performance from the experienced full-back.

Olivier Ntcham 7

Rodgers would be glad to have his French midfielder back during this busy phase. Was a strong and willing runner and linked up play well.

Ryan Christie 8

Scored his fourth goal in the last six games and opened the scoring with a brilliant first-time shot. Once again a complete performance and Christie 2.0 continues to impress.

Callum McGregor 7

Provided the assist for the first goal. Did his job well by picking out the right pass in the final third.

Scott Sinclair 6.5

Was found wanting on quite a few occasions but provided some sparks as well. An inconsistent game for the left winger. Scored the second to secure any nervous moments.

James Forrest 7.5

The Scotsman is in the form of his life and looked a class apart throughout the game. Whether it was his touches or runs, he enjoyed a good game overall.

Odsonne Edouard 7

His physical presence was often too much for Hamilton defence to handle. Came close to scoring on quite a few occasions but couldn’t get his name on the scoresheet.

Substitutes

Emilio Izaguirre N/A

Didn’t get involved much to warrant a rating.

Leigh Griffiths 8

His record coming off the bench to score is impressive, and that is exactly what he did as he took a smart free-kick from the edge of the box to score on his return from injury. A massive boost for Rodgers to have him back given the run of fixtures ahead.

Lewis Morgan N/A

Didn’t play enough to warrant a rating.
