It was three points and three goals for Celtic in Livingston on Sunday afternoon, putting the Hoops back to four points clear at the top of the Premiership.

Three well-worked goals saw Celtic take maximum points, with Greg Taylor scoring a rocket on his 100th appearance in green and white.

All of Celtic’s players played well, earning pass marks in every department. It was a great team performance, with no hangover from the European exit in midweek showing.

Confidence will be high in the team as they prepare for their trip to Madrid to play the last Champions League match of the season, albeit a dead rubber tie.

As Celtic scored three in Livingston, here are three talking points from the match

O’Riley Back Performing

After a few weeks of underperforming, Matt O’Riley was back to his best today. He’s adapted to the deeper role really well and was terrific throughout the match.

Coming off just before the 70th-minute mark, he had misplaced just the one pass and put in a great defensive performance. He worked with CCV to keep the Livingston attack at bay, doubling up on Nouble.

Kyogo Has His Confidence Back

Kyogo’s opener was brilliant. He struck the ball, with power, from an angle which left the keeper helpless. It was a terrific finish from the Japanese forward.

His movement all afternoon was brilliant, with the Livingston defence struggling to cope with the man from Japan.

He silenced the doubters who felt Giakoumakis should’ve started this match.

Two in Two for Taylor

For someone who hadn’t scored in the league for Celtic, Greg Taylor has now scored two goals in two games and showed off a superb few strikes on Sunday.

Before he got his name on the scoresheet, a shot from a similar area left the keeper panicking as he palmed it away.

His goal was superb, and the left-back will be pleased with it. He also got an assist on his 100th appearance for the club.
