Celtic went on top of the table with a two-point lead as they got a 2-1 win against Hamilton and Rangers dropped points against Aberdeen. The game was supposed to be a straightforward affair for the Hoops, but they huffed and puffed their way towards the three points in the end.
Ryan Christie scored an early goal in what looked like the winner in the 13th minute. However, Marios Ogkmpoe equalised late on in the 90th minute. Celtic showed why they are the champions as they still found a way to win as Scott Brown found the winner in stoppage time to make it 2-1.
Here is how Lennon’s men fared.
Fraser Forster 7
Made one crucial save in the second half. Couldn’t have done much more for the goal and did a fine job between the sticks overall.
Moritz Bauer 6
Steady but often unspectacular. Kept things simple and did his job defensively. Not as threatening as Frimpong in the attacking third.
Nir Bitton 7
Came in for Jullien and did a fine job at the back. His passing was impressive and looked assured and composed in defence.
Kristoffer Ajer 7
Missed a great chance to score which would have put the tie to bed. Wasn’t tested much in defence and had a decent game overall.
Greg Taylor 7
The Scotsman showed great intensity and work rate. Helped his side on the attacking front and kept things tight at the back.
Scott Brown 8
The captain rescued the points today with a good late run. Like quite a few of his teammates, was steady but unspectacular. But turned it on when it counted the most in the dying embers of the game. His winner’s mentality once again made the difference.
Callum McGregor 6
Played within himself as he kept things simple in the middle and didn’t play with his usual quick tempo. His passing was accurate as usual.
Olivier Ntcham 5.5
Had a chance to show his worth from the start but couldn’t provide much. Failed to dominate the midfield battle and was substituted early in the second half.
James Forrest 6.5
Lennon has surprisingly been using him on the left which doesn’t suit him too much. Looked a threat whenever he got the ball but not at his usual best.
Ryan Christie 7.5
Once again, put in a big shift when others were scrambling across the pitch. Scored the opener and stretched play with his runs and movement, Always looked a major threat in the attacking third.
Lewis Morgan 6
Had another chance to lead the line but the Rennes game continues to be his best performance as Morgan failed to provide any meaningful tonight. Worked hard, but the Accies were able to deal with him.
Michael Johnston 6
Looked sharp again after coming on and made a case for starting in the cup final.
Leigh Griffiths 5
Brought fresh legs and energy on the pitch.
Jeremie Frimpong N/A
Didn’t play enough to warrant a rating.
