Sublimely Curled Tom Rogic Goal Shows Celtic At Their Best

Brendan Rodgers' men will face high-flying Hibs in a mouth-watering clash at Parkhead on Saturday in the Scottish Premiership as both teams aim for a positive start after the global break.

While Lennon admitted to having got his tactics wrong in the early part of the game, where Celtic moved into a 2-0 lead, he was far from impressed with the performance of the referee.

The torrent of incident continued when Edouard hit the post and, two minutes later, side-footed home a Forrest cutback to restore Celtic's two-goal advantage.

Martin Boyle made it a nervy quarter-of-an-hour for the hosts, however, the former Paris Saint-Germain forward netted his second of the game moments before the final whistle and ensured Celtic would keep all three points.

Hibernian manager Neil Lennon knows the tough task that awaits his side at Celtic Park, but believes their confidence can help them get a result.

"I love this game [?][?][?] The lads put in a top shift today!" Stephen Mallan's curling free-kick slipped just past Craig Gordon's right-hand post.

Hibs defender Darren McGregor, back for the first time since August after recovering from a knee injury, was then booked for a foul on James Forrest and Callum McGregor's whipped-in free-kick nearly caught out keeper Adam Bogdan before hitting the bar on the way over.

"They are two really important players for the team and they would be a big loss but we have lots of important players to step in".

As the play raced from end to end the Easter Road keeper produced a fine save from Ntcham's powerful 25-yard drive, but in the 19th minute the French midfielder took a perfectly-weighted Rogic pass and from 16 yards he guided the ball low into the corner.

In the 31st minute Celtic came close to adding a third.
