‘Best player on the pitch’, ‘class’: Some Celtic fans hail 22-year-old’s display last night

Celtic were given a tough game at St Mirren as Lee Erwin gave the hosts a shock third-minute lead when he scrambled home at the back post from a corner.

However, first-half goals from Shane Duffy and James Forrest managed to turn the game around for Celtic, as they held on to secure their fourth consecutive Scottish Premiership win.

Up next for Celtic is Saturday’s Premiership meeting with Livingston at Parkhead.
