Parkhead star a shadow of former self: Three things learned about Celtic in win v Hibernian
Celtic maintained their 11 point lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership with a hard-fought 1-0 win over Hibernian at Parkhead on Saturday afternoon.
Brendan Rodgers made two changes from the side which defeated Partick 2-1, with Jozo Simunovic and Leigh Griffiths in for Mikael Lustig and Odsonne Edouard as the Hoops changed to three at the back.
After Scott Sinclair missed an absolute sitter to put the Bhoys into the lead, and Craig Gordon had denied Martin Boyle and Brandon Barker, Leigh Griffiths put the Hoops into the lead in the 27th.
The Celts were then disrupted with two injuries, as Griffiths suffered a calf injury and was replaced by Moussa Dembele, and Craig Gordon being replaced at half-time by Dorus de Vries.
The injuries seemed to knock the Hoops out of their rhythm, as they found the second-half hard going, but de Vries only had one save to make from a John McGinn shot.
Rodgers will be satisfied enough with the result if not the performance.
