Celtic travelled to Broadwood to take on Clyde under blistering conditions in the fifth round of the Scottish Cup. The reigning Scottish champions got the job done efficiently as they managed a 3-0 win.

Olivier Ntcham opened the scoring with a long-range strike in the 16th minute. Klimala had a brilliant chance to get his first goal in the opening half, but he missed a one on one with the goalkeeper. However, the new signing did contribute towards Celtic’s second goal, which came through a corner. The ball was flicked on by the Polish ace, and Scott Brown scored from close quarters to make it 2-0 in the 40th minute.

Celtic did the job in the second half as they maintained possession well. The game opened up in the end and Bayo got on the scoresheet with a simple finish after some good work by Bauer.

Celtic Players Rated In Their Comfortable Win Vs Clyde

Scott Bain 6.5

Had a few tricky aerial balls to catch due to windy conditions but did his job. Wasn’t tested apart from those moments.

Moritz Bauer 6.5

Saw a lot of the ball on the right but failed to provide much quality on his crosses for large parts. Worked hard and tracked back when required. Got an assist late on when he picked out Bayo in the box.

Christopher Jullien 6

Wasn’t tested much defensively and did his job when called upon.

Kristoffer Ajer 6

Similar to his defensive partner, Ajer didn’t have to deal with too many dangers. Passed the ball well from the back.

Boli Bolingoli-Mbombo 6

Wasn’t able to get into the game much in the first half but made some good runs in the second 45 and helped his side in attack.

Scott Brown 7

Was in the right place in the box to score from the corner. Moved the ball well and helped his team defensively when required.

Olivier Ntcham 8

The game needed a moment of magic to open up, and Ntcham provided that with a good strike from the left. Looked lively and was always looking to play one-twos.

Mohamed Elyounoussi 6.5

Looked a bit rusty, to begin with, but did alright overall. Nothing too spectacular but contributed in the attacking third.

Ryan Christie 7.5

Looked lively when he got on the ball and took one spectacular effort from a distance in the first half. Grazed the bar late on in the second half with another impressive attempt. Linked up play well and looked a major threat.

James Forrest 6.5 

His crossing from the right was often below par but played with good energy. Troubled the opposition from time to time.

Patryk Klimala 6

Assisted the second goal by flicking the ball in Brown’s path. Failed to get in the game much. Should have scored in the first half when he was through on goal.

Substitutes

Vakoun Issouf Bayo 6

Could have had more than one goal as the game opened up in the last quarter. Showed good awareness to score the final goal for Celtic on the day.

Jonny Hayes 5

Played as an inverted winger after coming on and did a decent job.

Marian Shved N/A

Didn’t play enough to warrant a rating.
