Celtic 5 v 0 St Johnstone

Another fine win yesterday.

As always, when you play a team more than once in quick succession, never mind 3 times, there’s a fear that teams suss each other out and one game could go against the norm.

Thankfully that wasn’t the case and we’ve gotten better each time we’ve faced St Johnstone. Truth be told I was surprised at how tentative they were, we were winning 50/50s all over the pitch, even Scott Sinclair flooking won one

Some of the goals were of the highest quality, the most notable is obviously Scott Brown’s. What a hit son, what a hit.

Sinclair with another hat trick and his 3rd is a lovely finish. 11 goals in 10 games for Sinclair now, 17 for the season. Every chance he could hit 100 goals for the club by next season which is unbelievable for a winger to get to that in 4 seasons or less.

Oli Burke had his best game in a Celtic jersey, his touch was much better and his awareness was also vastly improved from recent weeks. We already know his pace and strength, they’re just absolutely ridiculous, that run for the 4th goal

Good to see Eddy back on the pitch and with KT to come back into the mix this week, probably on the bench for Thursday then we’re finally getting back to full strength.

Another clean sheet as well yesterday, Bain continues to impress but the acid test is coming up on Thursday.

Really looking forward to this week, 2 massive games and 2 wins would be the ideal scenario but I’d settle for just the win on Sunday and a goalless draw on Thursday if it was offered right now.

Btw, who’d have thought Oli Burke’s atrocious dive would have been topped within the space of 3 days...

Our team in a couple seasons if we keep them all will be immense, Eduard, Dembele, OkoFlex, Johnston, Henderson, KT, McGregor etc etc.

Arsenal fans were gutted when they sold Oko-Flex the boy has talent.

84' - A brilliant first touch from Allan sends his opponent the wrong way, much to the appreciation of the crowd.

Okoflex looks a real talent, wouldn't be surprised to see him get a run out towards the end of the season 👍

Mazis hasn't been getting a game. He played Fri night for the U18s and bagged a hat trick albeit just Airdrie. He was OK but not great. Tried too hard to shape a lot of his passes for show when a regular straight pass was on with the effect that quite a few went nowhere near intended.

Had two shots that were saved, one a 'great save' according to this.

CELTIC’S Reserve side recorded an emphatic 4-1 victory over Falkirk this afternoon (Monday), with Jack Aitchison and Armstrong Oko-Flex both netting doubles in the well-deserved win.
With Bayo getting his first run-out in the Hoops, Tommy McIntyre’s side were on the front foot from the start, with former Celtic goalkeeper, Leo Fasan, denying the Ivorian striker after 10 minutes before producing a superb save eight minutes later, again from a Bayo chance.
However, the Hoops suffered a setback in the 20th minute when Shayne Lavery produced a nice turn and finish beyond Dorus De Vries to make it 1-0 to Falkirk.
A few minutes later, Celtic were forced to make a change when Wallace Duffy picked up an injury following a late tackle, with Jack Aitchison coming on and Mark Hill slotting into the right-back role.
And it was the Celtic substitute who grabbed the equaliser a minute before the break after he’d come close just minutes earlier.
It was a mazy run from captain, Kerr McInroy which created the chance, with Aitchison pouncing inside the area to finish. And the striker almost grabbed a second on the stroke of half-time, but Fasan saved well.
Into the second-half and it was one-way traffic as the Hoops pressed forward in search of another goal. That duly came on 51 minutes with a wonderful Armstrong Oko-Flex strike from the edge of the area.
Dorus de Vries was the quieter of the two goalkeepers, but he had to be alert just before the hour mark to deny Falkirk an equaliser, and within minutes it was 3-1 to Celtic.
Aitchison dispossessed a Falkirk defender before drilling the ball home at the near post, and he came close to a hat-trick in the 63th minute, but his shot went narrowly wide.
The 18-year-old striker was causing Falkirk’s defence plenty of problems, and he won his side a penalty on 70 minutes when he was fouled inside the area, with Oko-Flex stepping up to convert the spot-kick.
And as the game drew to an end, it was Celtic who continued to press forward, though they were unable to add to their tally of four goals.
CELTIC: De Vries, Duffy (Aitchison 27), Church, Welsh, Compper, Hill, Caffrey (Savoury 74), McInroy (Kennedy 74), Bayo (Mazis 62), Allan, Oko-Flex.
Subs: Willison
FALKIRK: Fasan, Kidd, Robson, Reekie, Brough, McKee, Jarvis, Trialist, Todorov, Lavery, O’Hara.
Subs: Dunne, Trialist
