Here's how the Celtic players got on in their 2-0 win over St Mirren on Wednesday night.

SCOTT BAIN: Spectator in the first half, but was called into action to palm a decent Cody Cooke effort wide early in the second. Then smothered Nazon as the striker got through on goal. 6

MIKAEL LUSTIG: Run and shot led to rebound that Weah converted for Celtic’s opener and got forward at every opportunity. Crossing was decent and link-up with Forrest was good on the whole before being replaced by Benkovic with 20 minutes to go. 6

JOZO SIMUNOVIC: Few rash moments but generally untroubled by either Cooke or Duckens Nazon for an hour despite their best attempts to pose a physical challenge to the Celtic backline. That may have explained the lapse in concentration that led to Nazon getting a couple of sighters thereafter, and then he was caught wrong side to pick up a booking. 5

KRISTOFFER AJER: Blasted glorious chance over the bar early on as he wandered up front, and was his usual assured self on the ball. Wasn’t rock solid at the back though, with Nazon passing up some good opportunities for the Saints, and was booked for rash challenge after giving ball away. 6

EMILIO IZAGUIRRE: Got forward to great effect throughout the game and spent the vast majority of the game on the front foot. Delivery wasn’t always on the mark, but a decent showing from the Honduran. 6

SCOTT BROWN: A much quieter 90 minutes for the Celtic captain after the Old Firm game on Sunday. Dominant performance as he took control of the centre of the park. 7

CALLUM MCGREGOR: Should have had two assists in opening 20 minutes as lovely through ball sent Ajer in on goal and then another threaded pass sent Burke clear, but teammates let him down on both occasions. Played huge part in opener and at the centre of everything good that Celtic did going forward. 8

JAMES FORREST: Played major role in opening goal with cushioned first-time ball to Lustig and was a danger all night down the right. 7

OLIVIER NTCHAM: Never looked like scoring a penalty he took after half an hour, stuttering on his run up and then playing the ball tamely up the middle for Vaclav Hladky to save before prodding rebound onto the bar and over. Looked half asleep at times and gave the ball away too often, before being replaced by Christie just after the hour. 5

TIMOTHY WEAH: Deployed on the left but got into the box and showed a striker’s instinct by following up Lustig’s shot to head the opener in off the bar. Wasn’t too shabby on the wing either, giving the hapless Corbu all sorts of trouble before tiring late on and being replaced by Edouard. 7

OLIVER BURKE: Played up top and spurned a glorious opportunity after being played in by McGregor early on, firing wide. Couldn’t get the ball to stick, and was subsequently moved out wide before being put back up front in the second half and wasting another decent opportunity as he fired straight at the keeper. 6


RYAN CHRISTIE: Made his return from injury just after the hour in place of Ntcham and had a chance right away, popping up in the box to prod an effort at Hladky. Made a major impact and got the all-important second goal with five minutes left as his shot deflected past Hladky. 7

FILIP BENKOVIC: On with 20 minutes to go for Lustig and slotted in comfortably at right-back. 5

ODSONNE EDOUARD: Got last 12 minutes and had a mazy run that almost saw him in on goal as he made his presence felt. 4
