Video: Celtic 6-0 St Mirren - The Good, The Bad and The Ugly


MOTM David Turnbull v St Mirren

The victories for Celtic started before Saturday's 3pm kick off as Croatian wing-back, Josip Juranović was announced as the club's latest signing on a five-year deal from Legia Warsaw.


The 26-year-old watched on as his new teammates rampaged their way to their fifth win on the bounce in front of another, 'as-full-as-it-can-be' Celtic Park.


Yes, this latest performance was at home against a team without their manager in the dugout (wishing Jim Goodwin a speedy recovery), playing with ten men for 70 minutes and who will most likely be plying their trade in the Championship next season, but Postecoglou's teams do not discriminate against whoever is in front of them.


I read a stat that we have had 104 shots on goal in our last three domestic games. 104, let that sink in for a minute!


Despite the cynic in me thinking that a return of 15 goals from 104 shots isn't high enough, this alone perfectly encapsulates the transformation in style and mentality that Postecoglou has brought to the East End of Glasgow, all the way from Down Under via Japan.


The Good


David Turnbull left Parkhead with the match ball after a stunning performance where much of Celtic's attacking play went through the 22-year-old. In the first 20 minutes alone, the playmaker had a right-footed effort that cannoned back off the post, was instrumental in the build up to Abada's first goal and drew the foul as Alan Power was shown his red card.


His outstanding composure, vision, awareness, first touch, and striking technique were all highlights of a display where he also found the net three times with equally unique finishes.


The Bad


Jim Goodwin has a real job on his hands to help keep St Mirren in the Premiership this season. They are without a win so far this campaign and this latest defeat will not have done his team morale any favours.


They will be hoping for an immediate response at home against a St Johnstone team who are also yet to pick up a win this season but it looks like a long, hard campaign ahead for The Buddies.


The Ugly


No prizes for pre-empting that Alan Power picks up this accolade for a nasty challenge on MOTM David Turnbull. The St Mirren midfielder launched himself, studs showing, at the young playmaker and if it had not been for Turnbull's quick movement, he could have been joining Karamoko Dembele for a frustrating spell on the sidelines.
