Clyde Superscoreboard’s Gordon Dalziel has picked his Team of the Week from the games at the weekend. The veteran pundit has selected three Celts in his side, Kyogo, Carl Starfelt and Greg Taylor; however, there is no place for Reo Hatate, who was at his scintillating best on Saturday.
Celtic collected the Cinch Premiership trophy on Saturday afternoon but not before turning on the style in a blistering display against Aberdeen. The result against the Pittodrie outfit will have left Billy Dodds anxious about Saturday’s coming Scottish Cup Final.

Kyogo scored a brace before being forced off the pitch after coming together with Roos, the Aberdeen goalkeeper. The Japanese sensation, who was named both Celtic and Scotland’s Player of the Year, is set to be fit for the showpiece final this weekend. The two goals at the weekend showed two of the sides to Kyogo’s game, great movement, a clinical finish and then an instinctive, poacher’s goal.
Hatate, however, was the heartbeat of Celtic’s midfield along with Callum McGregor. The left-sided No.8 was his usual energetic self.
