There was always a feeling that Celtic might struggle if this game went into the latter stages at 0-0, so Ryan Christie scoring an absolute belter after twenty minutes is pretty much ideal.
He’s demonstrated a few times at Hampden that he can score wonderful goals on the big occasion, and this isn’t too dissimilar to his goal against Aberdeen in the semi:

The shape on it is simply perfect and you can see it’s in as soon as he hits it, while this puts Celtic in the ideal position to kick on and take control of the final.
