Well that second 45 was is the best we have played for a wee while and it was all set up by a 20yr old bhoy. James Forrest. The wee mans two goals were top class.
The first half was brutal with Hibs breaking at will. There was a hole in midfield you could have marched a circus through. The team in general were very sluggish and slow on the attack. Hibs got a present when Sproul’s shot deflected off the hapless Big Dan and ended up in the corner of the net. The game was only minutes old but it took Celtic till the beginning of the second half to”get their ‘Mojo’ back. However when they did they were devastating.
We James kicked it off with a good run in the box when he fired an unstoppable shot into the net. His second involved some nice interplay with Stokesy who touched an nice ball into the wee man’s path. He kept his feet and his head and sent the ball past the keeper. It appeard that Celtic just stepped up a few gears and Hibs could not live with them.
The third goal was bullet of a header from Stokesy which basically sealed the game. However Celtic were not done yet. Garry Hooper latched onto a long pass from midfield. His first touch was top class then he lashed the ball past the keeper 4- 1 to Celtic.
The rest of the game was played out at a tempo dictated by Celtic. So to sum it all up, first half mince, second half brilliant.
I hope this helps build confidence throughout the team.
