Celtic started the season with a bang against Hamilton. Here are player ratings for the match in which Odsonne Edouard showed why he’s the best in Scotland.
What a match that was for Celtic to start their season and on Flag Day. Their 5-1 victory over Hamilton will propel them to the top of the table and set the stage for what will likely be a historic season. There were phenomenal performances all around and only a few complaints.
Here are the player ratings for the Hoops match against Hamilton:
Scott Bain- 6
Overall not a terrible performance from the veteran. Many believed that Vasilis Barkas would get the run out after he arrival was announced earlier in the week. Instead the club decided to give him time to acclimate. As such, Bain was the man today and other than a questionable miss on a Christopher Jullien deflection (which led to an own goal) Bain looked the part.
Christopher Jullien- 6.5
As mentioned above, Jullien committed an own goal in the first half to give Hamilton some resemblance of hope. The Frenchman could’ve made a better play on the ball and avoided a goal altogether. Overall, Jullien had a solid, early season performance. He looked great in set pieces where he used his height to threaten multiple times throughout the match. He will only get better.
Greg Taylor- 8
Questions were raised about the left-back’s hold on the position during preseason. In response, Taylor came out of the gate swinging as he provided solid defense in the back and provided two assists early in the match. Clearly Taylor wanted to make a statement early in the season to solidify his position in the first team. He did just that against Hamilton and will now look towards replicating that performance next week.
