Celtic winger Jota was awarded the man of the match inside the stadium on Saturday afternoon. The bhoys ran out 4-1 winners and Jota’s instrumental play led to the equaliser before the Hoops would go on to run riot.

The league was effectively won against the Jambos, the fans staying inside the stadium following the full time whistle to salut their heroes.

On the walk around the park, cameras took in the scenes and beamed them around the world. The players and the support together 12 months after things were so, so different.

During the walk around cameras caught Cal Mac discussing the man of the match award with Greg Taylor, the Celtic captain putting it out there Jota shouldn’t have been named man of the match and the real men of the match was him and Greg Taylor.

Jota did have a great game but there were a few players who could have easily been man of the match in front of him. Matt O’Riley for one!

There wasn’t a bad performance from the team on Saturday, and it’s testament to the bhoys there’s not a clear man of the match winner.
