Zander Clark 6

Did very little wrong. Could do nothing to prevent Forrest’s winner and provided the odd big stop when required.

James Brown 7

Had to lend support to Rooney to help keep Jota quiet but even then, two players weren’t always enough to silence the Portuguese. Solid performance from the defender.

Liam Gordon 6

Handed the armband after Jason Kerr’s departure this summer and is growing in stature at the back. Did well to keep chances for Furuhashi to a minimum.

Jamie McCart 7

Composed and assured display from the former Celtic academy player. Kept things very quiet in his area of the pitch.

Shaun Rooney 4

Struggled to contain Jota throughout. Positioning gave the winger extra space in which he thrived and had a long afternoon chasing the winger’s shadow. Lucky not to have seen red.

Callum Booth 6

Promising afternoon from the full-back. Good awareness in defence kept things tight and the odd run forward caused the occasional problem for Celtic.

Craig Bryson 7

Tidy in possession and very hard working. Tested Hart with a 35-year pot-shot towards the end of the first half but Hart was alert to the danger.

Murray Davidson 6

Put a shift in and covered plenty of ground but perhaps lacked a little guile in possession at times.

David Wotherspoon 5

So often Saints’ player to unlock an opposition defence but couldn’t do so on this occasion. Was brought off early in the second half after taking a sore one.

Michael O’Halloran 6

Gave the Celtic defence little time on the ball. Almost nicked a goal by pressuring Hart and his pace made him a real threat at Hampden.

Chris Kane 6

Threw himself about as he is wont to do but will be disappointed not to have had many – if any – chances fall his way.


Ali Crawford (for Wotherspoon, 52) 5

Brought on to replace Wotherspoon but didn’t provide the same level of creativity.

Eetu Vertainen (for Brown, 80) 4

Came on to add some attacking impetus but struggled to make an impact.

Liam Craig (for Bryson, 80) 4

Shored up the midfield and gave Bryson a rest.

Lars Dendocker (for Rooney, 90) N/A

On for last few minutes.
