Celtic player ratings v Hibernian: 5/10 first-team mainstay must be axed

Celtic stayed 11 points clear at the top of the league with a hard-fought 1-0 win over Hibernian at Celtic Park on Saturday afternoon.
Brendan Rodgers made two changes from the side which defeated Partick 2-1, with Jozo Simunovic and Leigh Griffiths replacing Mikael Lustig and Odsonne Edouard, as the Bhoys changed formation to three at the back.
Scott Sinclair was guilty of a terrible miss, hitting the bar with the goal gaping, before a Leigh Griffiths goal gave the Hoops the lead in the 27th minute.
Shortly after Griffiths was forced off with a calf injury and was replaced by Moussa Dembele, before Craig Gordon was forced off at half-time and was replaced by Dorus de Vries.
The injuries seemed to disrupt the rhythm of the Bhoys, as they found the second-half hard going, with Hibs having plenty of possession but creating few chances.
The Hoops managed to hold for the narrow win to record their first league win of the season so far.
