Celtic kept up the pressure on leaders Rangers as they produced one of the comfortable football results on the weekend of the Scottish Premiership. Liel Abada opened the scoring in the ninth minute before he scored his second in the 22nd minute. Chris Kane scored in the 69th minute before Nir Bitton sealed the three points one minute before time.
St Johnstone boss Callum Davidson: “It’s going to be a busy couple of weeks. I said to the players in there that some of you need to go and have a look at yourselves. We have to find a way of bringing in some players with quality to, with players who we have here, start getting us out of this mess. We gave away a goal easily in the first 10 minutes after giving them possession and that was us chasing the game. All three goals we made it far too easy for them.”
Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou: “The last couple of days have been pretty chaotic as you would imagine with everything that was happening. But we stayed calm through the whole thing and we knew that this was just a different challenge from the other challenges we have had so far and we just had to get on with it. To be fair, it’s been challenging from the moment I set foot here, it has just been different challenges. That’s what I keep saying to the players, all along we haven’t made excuses or felt sorry for ourselves, we have just got on with the job.”
