Celtic worked hard for three points in Perth this afternoon. It was a poor start from the Hoops, although they upped their game in the second 45 to ensure they ran out victorious.

The three goals that were scored by Brendan Rodgers’ men were of optimum quality, although Matt O’Riley’s particularly stood out. The ball was played forward and it eventually reached Kyogo. He played in the Denmark internationalist who unleashed a thing of sheer beauty:

What makes O’Riley’s strike even more impressive is the fact it was scored on his weaker right foot. It was a finish that will undoubtedly contend for the Goal of the Season award come the end of the campaign.
