Anyone who hoped for a high-scoring affair on Flag Day would’ve walked away from Celtic Park pleased on Saturday afternoon. A 4-2 win for the Bhoys got their season off to the perfect start as Kyogo, Matt O’Riley and David Turnbull got on the scoresheet.

David Turnbull

It was the Scotland midfielder who opened the scoring early doors from the spot:

Soon after, a sweeping move saw Liel Abada cross for the talismanic Kyogo who couldn’t really miss after finding space in the box:

Turnbull then added a third just before half time. The 24-year-old tapped in at the back post after Matt O’Riley showed great persistence out wide:

County got one back just before the hour although O’Riley restored the champions’ lead on 73 minutes, the Dane thundering home from just inside the box:

After this, the visitors did get one back late on but it was majorly insignificant. Celtic ran out worthy winners and got their season off to the perfect start as a result of today’s win.
