Weah With 6, Lustig Gets 8 | Celtic Players Rated In Win Vs Aberdeen As They Win The League

Celtic confirmed their supremacy in the Scottish Premiership as they officially wrapped up their 8th consecutive title by defeating Aberdeen 3-0 at Pittodrie.

The home side started the game strongly, and they were left to rue their missed chances as Celtic picked them off later on in the game. James Wilson struck the bar around the 18th-minute mark and then, later on, he failed to convert a rebound as he hit the post this time. Celtic rode their luck and took the lead before half time as Callum McGregor found Mikael Lustig’s head who scored at the back post.

Inside 10 minute of the first half, Jozo Simunovic scored from another header through a corner and Celtic’s celebration well and truly started after that. The Dons’ shoulders dropped after the second goal went in and the Hoops added a late third goal via Odsonne Edouard to wrap up the title and the three points.

Here is how Lennon’s men fared on the day.

Scott Bain 6

Was neat with the ball at his feet. Lucky to come up with a clean sheet as Aberdeen failed to convert their chances. 

Kristoffer Ajer 7

Looked calm in possession and played his part in keeping the clean sheet.

Jozo Simunovic 8

A solid performance from the Croatian defender. Can’t really fault him for anything on the defensive front. Scored the crucial header to put the game to bed.

Kieran Tierney 5

Looked a bit rusty and was substituted early on in the second half. Not his usual self as it is clear that he is struggling with a back injury.

Mikael Lustig 8

Worked very hard by providing an attacking outlet down the right. Scored a diving header as he found himself in space at the back post. Defensively too, the Swedish international stuck to his task.

Scott Brown 6

Did all the nitty gritty job well in midfield and kept the ball moving. Nothing stand-out, but played his role well.

Callum McGregor 7.5

Assisted brilliantly for the first goal. Always looked to move the ball forward and influenced a lot of attacking moves for his side.

Tom Rogic 5.5

His touches were slightly off. Hasn’t been at his best in the last few games and this was another occasion where the Australian looked a tad off colour.

James Forrest 7

His movement and pace was there for everyone to see. Played with intensity and ran down the opposition defenders ragged with his runs.

Timothy Weah 6

His pace troubled the defenders down the left, but he wasn’t able to come up with an end product for most parts of the game.

Odsonne Edouard 6.5

Missed a fair bit of chances early on but always looked lively and threatening. Got his goal late on in the game. A simple finish from inside the box.

Substitute

Oliver Burke 5

Provided fresh legs and energy late on in the game.

Jonny Hayes 6

Filled in for Tierney down the left and helped his side keep it tight at the back.

Scott Sinclair N/A

Came on to run down the clock.
