You won’t see an easier 2-0 looking back but looking back Craig Gordon had to make 3 superb saves, so this was an easy 2-0 but again our lack of cutting edge up-front showed. We have the firepower, we have the players, sadly the way we play is too narrow and we are easy to defend against. One pile driver and a deflection leading to a good finish by Henderson won it for us on the day

Commons threw his boots to the fans, I am told he was maybe saying goodbye. Why throw boots in? For me without someone suggesting it he looked to be saying goodbye, to be told it’s a ‘Maybe’ it makes it more than just a nice gesture, he isn’t happy he is having to leave, he loves Celtic and him and his partner are settled here

Celtic had all the possession today and the first goal was just superb. The ball was played from the wing into Commons he kept the ball rolling into the path of Matthews and his shot was unstoppable, no keeper was getting that, great goal and superb for Matthews

1-0 and one of the goals of the season from Matthews

With 20 scouts in attendance for this game it makes you wonder who is being watches as Celtic have a few assets. But don’t discount some scouts being there for Hamilton’s Crawford, he had a few chances today

Second half I was watching and screaming for a 4-4-2 or even 4-3-1-2 as we have don’t have enough bodies in the box when we do actually get a cross in. Our second goal came from a superb cross from Matthews, missing the first defender, floated over to the back post, Izzy got a touch it fell to Henderson who hammered home on the half volley. Brilliant finish from the young lad

Good controlled finish by Henderson for 2-0

All in a good win, 3 points is all you want on a cold Saturday afternoon when you are missing key players for whatever reasons. Guidetti looks like he is 3rd choice striker now, maybe Ronny is bringing the kids head back to Earth, we all love  confidence but John maybe has shown too much, I am guessing of course

Man of the match for me was Nir Bitton, the lad controlled the midfield, got better as the game progressed and is getting more confident each week, the kid just plays the simple game, he is assured, confident, never gets flustered and his work-rate along with Johansen and others make us a very good team at pressing teams, as we did in the first half today

Cya next game
