Kyogo played the ball into Jota’s pass, who took a touch before dinking the ball over the heads of St Johnstone defenders allowing Aaron Mooy to rush through and lift the ball over Remi Matthews.
The Australian midfielder has been in great form since his return from the World Cup in Qatar. Ange has even said that he is keen to discuss improved terms with the cultured midfielder.

Andrew Considine’s own goal for Celtic on their way before Kyogo doubled the lead. Drey Wright pulled one back but now Celtic are in control, leading 3-1.
I must admit that I was one of the doubters that Mooy was better than what we had in the middle of the park when we signed him last summer. However I am happy to be proven wrong, he seems to be getting better week by week. Also putting in a shift defensively, comfortable taking the ball in any tight situation. Hopefully he can keep doing what he is doing and stay fit. He could be a really important player in Europe next year.
What is concerning at the moment is Iwata and Kobayashi not getting game time. In the champions league I think we will need to play Iwata and CalMac in the middle as we were overrun in midfield at times last year. While a left sided centre half was required as Ange himself said, as it gives a better balance to the defence and team. Then why is Ange not bleeding him in? The Spl as not as tough as the champions league, which is certainly a step up in level.
