Celtic 2-1 St Mirren – Squad players proving their value

Squad players proving their value last night…

It’s often said that our squad isn’t strong enough or lacks quality. There is a hint of truth to that, but last night players who are seen as squad players more than proved their worth.

David Turnbull isn’t a regular and is only starting because of injury to Reo, but he produced a magnificent finish to level things last night. Ok he missed a penalty, but his goal was vital in us grabbing all three points.

Yang who was introduced during the second half looked lively in his time on the park. He done more than Luis Palma and James Forrest combined. He was a constant threat to the St Mirren defence.

Of course Oh grabbed the winner with a fine taken goal. It was fantastic strike, finished with the mark of a clinical striker, and of course assisted by a wonderful pass by the impressive Odin Thiago Holm.

These guys are stating their case for a starting berth and last nights efforts will have done them no harm at all. In fact it gives Brendan much needed food for thought going into Saturdays clash at Ross county and of course the tough trip to Madrid to face Atletico next week.

Matt Corr’s new book Majic, Stan and the King of Japan is out now and Neil Lennon, the Celtic captain that season, has written the foreword for us.
