Celtic star Matt O’Riley got his tenth assist of the season against St Johnstone on Sunday afternoon, coming on as a late substitute in Celtic’s 4-1 win.

As assists go, it doesn’t come much easier than knocking a free kick into the path of your teammate who colt places it home from outside the area.

David Turnbull maximised his minutes again on the pitch second half by grabbing another goal from outside the area. The goal put the icing on the cake for the Scottish champions.

The players clearly discussed what to do with the set piece before it was taken and it worked to perfection.

After the match, Matt O’Riley took to social media praising David for his effort by declaring it was ‘never in doubt.

Matt has been in and out of the team lately with the emergence of Aaron Mooy in recent months.

The competition for places is high. Having guys like Matt and Turnbull on the bench gives Celtic tremendous depth.

As we head into the final third of the season, the whole squad will likely be called upon to get this title over the line.
