It probably won’t surprise any Celtic fan that has been watching Matt O’Riley since his arrival at Celtic in January that he is leading the domestic stats for assists and goal attempts.
Making the switch north of the border for League 1 side MK Dons, it’s fair to say Celtic have a quality player on the books. When Matt arrived he looked like a player for the future, a player that would need time to get into the team and get up to speed with “Angeball”.
Quite the opposite has happened in fact. The midfielder was thrown in at the deep end due to injuries but he has performed like he has been at the club for an age. This has been backed up with Sky Sports Opta Stats. who confirmed the following:
“Since his competition debut in January, no player has provided more assists (three) or created more chances (20) in the Scottish Premiership than Celtic’s Matt O’Riley.”
Earlier today we reported that Matt is also getting attention at international level as the player has just declared for Denmark.
This has been an amazing start to his Celtic career as has most Postecoglou signings and long may it continue.
