The Final Whistle: Celtic v St Johnstone (Sun 26th Dec 2021)

CELTIC head into the winter break having secured a crucial 3 points with a 3-1 win over St Johnstone at McDiarmid Park. 

Liel Abada took his tally for the season to 10 with a first half brace before Captain for the day, Nir Bitton secured the win with a late strike to see off the Saints.

Celtic's squad was decimated pre match, with Vasilis Barkas making his first start in 5 months and youngsters Joey Dawson, Owen Moffa & Ben Doak all taking a place on the bench - the former stepping in to replace Kyogo early in the first half.

The Hoops can now enjoy 3 weeks of rest and recuperation before taking to the field again on Monday 17th of January against Shaun Maloney's Hibs.

There may also be a few new faces in the squad by then, but in the meantime Ange Postecoglou will just be delighted to have gotten through the latest challenge.

We'll be back with our Half Season Review this week, but in the meantime, enjoy this one!
