On This Day: Ange’s Celtic pick up Premiership trophy, farewell to Rogic and Bitton

On This Day in 2022, Ange Postecoglou’s Celtic picked up the Premiership trophy after a 6-0 win over Motherwell.

It was 1-0 with just over 20 minutes on the clock. Tom Rogic touched down a Jota corner before the Japanese striker took the ball shimmied inside before firing an effort into the net, beating Liam Kelly at his near post.

David Turnbull made it 2-0 to the Scottish Champions after working his way into the box and firing a shot into the back of the net. The Scotland Internationalist took his goal well, leaving Kelly with no chance.

Kyogo made it 3-0 to Celtic after a stunning finish caught Motherwell by surprise. Tony Ralston floated a cross into the box, evading the Motherwell defender and allowing Kyogo to smash it into the net on the volley.

Jota made it 4-0 after latching onto a chance and firing the ball into the back of the net. Kyogo found Maeda between the lines, who’s touch took the ball away from Kelly in the Motherwell goal, allowing Jota to pop up and make it 4-0.

Giorgos Giakoumakis scored to make it 5-0 to Celtic with a special finish. Mugabe’s header went into the Glasgow sky before falling favourably for The Greek, who fired an overhead kick into the net. The Greek striker had his second, Celtic’s sixth, with a scrappy finish in injury time which sealed his status as joint top scorer.

The game also saw Celtic bid farewell to Rogic and Nir Bitton. The pair were great servants and were emotional as they bowed out on a glorious day for the football club.
