Football Insider rates the Celtic players during their 5-2 victory over St. Johnstone in the Scottish Premiership on Sunday.
Craig Gordon 6 – Two lazy clearances had alarm bells ringing. Good save to deny Foster in first-half.
Kieran Tierney 6 – Likes to attack, but kept quiet on the left by Foster in the first-half. Broke the shackles in the second.
Mikael Lustig 6 – Slightly better defensively than he was on the ball. Squandered possession on more than one occasion, but didn’t matter in the end.
Erik Sviatchenko 6 – Not challenged too much from open-play, but was kept busy nonetheless.
Dedryck Boyata 5 – Calamitous own goal. Perhaps not the best indication of his performance, but it wasn’t perfect.
Scott Brown 6 – Top-class distribution. Strong and assertive. No-one wanted to go near him.
Nir Bitton 6 – Not as influential as his midfield partners, but played okay.
Liam Henderson 8 – Rare start for the 20-year-old midfielder. Smart finish, calm and composed. Always in the right areas.
Scott Sinclair 7- Blistering pace on the counter. Caused a number of problems. Excellent finish for fourth goal.
Gary Mackay-Steven 4 – The midfielder had a shocker. Several opportunities to score but didn’t make his mark. A poor display.
Patrick Roberts 7 – Energetic. A stern test for opposition stopper Clark. A superb assist for Sinclair.
Moussa Dembele 10 (for Mackay-Steven 59) – Had the desired impact. Came on with his side behind and netted a brilliant hat-trick
Callum McGregor 6 (for Henderson 72) – A decent impact off the bench.
Nadir Ciftci 6 (for Roberts 87) – Little time to influence the game, but nice to get a rare run-out.
