Celtic had big performers all over the park today, James Forrest was quite rightly picked out for a man of the match award. With a performance that Celtic put on today, it is rare to be speaking about defenders. One player has come in for a lot of high praise from Celtic fans this afternoon. Jozo Simunovic.

The reason we say surprise is the reaction his name got on the team sheet an hour before kick off. A lot of fans were crying out to see Benkovic back in the team but he will be doing well to move big Jozo out of the backline after his performance today.

It looked bleak for Celtic with Boyata going down injured and Benkovic struggling for fitness but with Ajer stepping up in recent weeks and now Jozo looking to kick on and make the position his own, it will ease some of the fears going into next season.



  1. Neil and John, got the team and sub bench spot on today. Jozo took no prisoners. Both he and all his team mates all are working towards making the bosses year. Long my they rein. Has the cup got Tricolour ribbons on yet????

    Well given todays shift. It may come 25th of May. And make all remaining Lisbon Lion’s proud. Ohhh and the Triple Treble.
