Celtic forward Kyogo Furuhashi’s volley was the key difference in his side’s monumental derby day victory at Ibrox on Sunday. The Bhoys were terrific throughout the 90, with their performance true evidence of their status as champions.

In the Bhoys’ defence, Liam Scales partnered Swedish international Gustaf Lagerbielke. The Irishman went on to win the Man of the Match award, although his sidekick did have a few iffy moments.

Amusingly after the match, former Hoops’ gaffer Neil Lennon attempted to pronounce Lagerbielke’s name. It is fair to say Lennon got it wrong, something his old teammate and friend, Chris Sutton, humorously pointed out:

Eventually, in the end, the 52-year-old got it right. That didn’t stop him from jokingly labelling Sutton a ‘plank’, however.

The pair are still not on the best of terms after Chris Sutton conceded during Neil Lennon’s last Celtic run that he had to go.

At least in the end, Lennon learned to pronounce the name of Lagerbielke correctly. He did seem rather annoyed at the man he won a treble with, but let’s be honest, anyone would be the same if they were corrected on their pronunciation of a certain word.
