It’s easy to get caught up in an occasion and not give the best account of yourself but party day at paradise was marked with a commanding professional performance.
Inverness have previous offences of upsetting Celtic parties but today they were spectators as Celtic controlled the game from the first whistle to the last.
Celtic didn’t have to wait long to chalk up a goal but who scored the goal is anyone’s guess. Virgil Van Dijk headed a cross back across the box and Nir Bitton had all the time in the world to slot the ball home but Scepovic looked like he knocked the ball in with him.
There was no argument for Celtic’s second as Stefan Johansen ran onto an Armstrong ball to slot past Esson in the Caley goal.
It was total domination from Celtic midfield and Inverness never managed any threats on Craig Gordon’s Goal.
Charlie Mulgrew made a long awaited return to the first team after months out. Kris Commons also came on to replace Stuart Armstrong after he pulled up with cramp.
Celtic’s third goal was their best, they passed their from midfield into the Caley box from Scepovic to slot home his second when James Forrest put it on a plate for him.
Only ten minutes later and only after been introduced Leigh Griffiths scored a wonderful goal to bring his SPFL tally to 14 and 20 goals overall for the season.
High fives came just on the 90th minute as again some fast one touch stuff set up Kris Commons to bury number 5.
Maybe today you wouldn’t of expected to see Celtic’s best performance of the season but today was total football from Celtic and lets hope they can pick up from this performance when Champions League qualifiers come around and they don’t get caught cold like last season.
