CELTIC were patient and picked their moments against St Johnstone to make sure of the three points at Celtic Park – winning 2-0 on the day.
Even after going 1-0 up, St Johnstone had no desire to get forward and even time wasted at points during the second half.
It was an extremely professional performance by a team who would NOT have won this game earlier in the season or last term.
However, Scottish Football correspondent for the Sunday Times paints a bleak picture of the Celtic performance.
We’re forced to ask if he even bothered to watch the game?
St Johnstone stuffy today and made Celtic work for their win. Not much inspiration from Jota or Furuhashi on this occasion and Starfelt looks shaky every time I see him. Callum McGregor still Celtic’s best player by a distance and needs more support. Title race looks wide open..

Carl Starfelt mopped up everything that came his way during the game and didn’t give St Johnstone a sniff.
Kyogo was out on the wing for most of the game and found it hard to effect the game not playing through the middle. He became much more of a nuisance in the 10 minutes or so he got to play as the lone striker.
Celtic showed patience and decorum against a side who increasingly stuck the boot in as the game went on. There was nothing flashy about the performance but it was certainly not as described by Douglas Alexander.
It’s little wonder many Celtic fans have called these comments out since they appeared online.
Would it surprise you to know Douglas is also the ghost writer for Graeme Souness and Davie Weir on their books?
Seems everyone with a modicum of intellect can see that Starfelt is a woeful defender and is an accident waiting to happen.
It’s not difficult to defend against a side who never leave their own half.
I agree with his comments, the 1st half was abysmal, passing more backward and sideways than forward, looked clueless in trying to break their defence, when St. Johnstone pressed us higher up the park you could see the panic at times in our defenders, we still need massive improvement.
Starfelt is a woeful defender. He looks like someone who is continually rolled a live grenade every time he is passed the ball.
If passing the ball back to your goalkeeper or back across to the centre half was all the skill you needed to become a professional footballer you’d have women and children lining out for Barcelona on a weekly basis.
Anyone who can’t see that should take up writing about something that they do understand, like live weather reporting. Something that is extremely difficult to get wrong.
Who is this toss pot posting his 2 cents worth?
Do you mean the Post journo or Spunc?
Seems that it only takes two cents to get a rise out of you champ.
It isn’t worth 2 cents!
The double digit IQ brigade must have just woken up from their piss soaked beds.
One day you’ll make it past the decimal point and actually have intelligence measured in whole numbers! Keep dreaming, never give up, we believe in you etc. etc….
You make sure you get your booster shots gasúr.

Not wearing as thin as your shitey patter son, it’s practically a paper at this point, with about as much strength.
You get those booster shots gasúr.

You get those booster shots gasúr.

Good man larry.
Anything else you’d like to get off your chest Lar?
Lar is the internet warden, ‘calling people out’ who he doesn’t agree with, yet Larry is a left wing anti fascist, even though what Lar is actually doing here is employing the fascism that he is opposed to.
He’s opposed to it, because someone told him to oppose it, Larry and several of the mongrels on here haven’t got the mental capacity to think for themselves.
Thank God for Larry and his electronic vigilance.
