Joe Hart - On his final home game as a Celtic player, he could do little to impact St Mirren finding the back of his net twice, as Mark O’Hara got the better of him twice. A lovely standing ovation and rendition of his song was present at half time for the departing keeper, who lapped it up as he made his way to the dressing room. Had nothing to do in the second half, as Celtic had things under control for the majority of proceedings. He will be missed, that's for sure. 7

Tony Ralston - Playing in place of Alistair Johnston, the right-back brings a lot of endeavour and drive, but is clearly not at the same level as the Canadian. Still, he never hides, and the Scotland international tried his best to get involved at both ends of the pitch. He would play the killer cross to Luis Palma that won the game for Celtic on the day, as his pass found the Honduran who tapped it home, after a lovely backheel from O’Riley to set the full-back up. Big moment for the boyhood Celtic fan, who contributed yet again in a big game. 6

Stephen Welsh - A torrid first 45 for the academy graduate, who did not cover himself in glory whatsoever for both of St Mirren’s goals in the first half. A spectator for O’Hara’s first, he brought down Olusanya shortly after Celtic had equalised to compound his miserable showing. Was taken off with a shoulder injury in the second half. A poor showing from the defender. 4

Maik Nawrocki - Brought in from the cold due to keeping Liam Scales and Cameron Carter-Vickers injury-free, the Polish defender did not look smart for St Mirren’s opener, but had a pretty solid showing apart from this. His passing was crisp and forward-thinking, breaking the Buddies’ lines on a couple of occasions. A worthwhile 90 minutes for the imposing centre-back, who will have to put the hard yards in at training if he is to make the grade at Celtic next season. 7

Greg Taylor - Working alongside a different wide man in Luis Palma instead of the benched Daizen Maeda, Taylor did not look as fluid in his play with the Honduran in front of him. A couple of slack crosses meant groans from the crowd and the player himself, who loves a moan on the pitch, admittedly. Stabilised in the second half, and tried his best to get up the pitch at every opportunity. Another league medal for the Scottish left-back. 6

Callum McGregor - The captain’s start to the game was not great, as he was beaten in the air to the header that landed to O’Hara for the opening goal. Despite this, the skipper was assured in possession whenever the ball came to him. Another meaningful chunk of game-time, ahead of a mammoth tie next week at Hampden. Do not be surprised if he’s saved his best form for the national stadium next week. Quietly effective 7

Reo Hatate - A good 60 minute outing for the Japanese midfielder, who was involved heavily in the second goal of the afternoon for Celtic. Picking the ball up from the eventual goalscorer, Hatate put his wingers to shame with great drive before finding the oncoming Kyogo in the box, who finished in style. Purposeful and always playing with his head up, the midfielder went close with a volley that went just over the bar. A big player with a big part to play next week. 7

Matt O’Riley - 19 goals and 18 assists with one game to go. That’s a player of the year if ever I’ve seen one. Getting Celtic back into the game after a shock goal from the visitors, the midfielder collected the ball from Kyogo before slamming it past Zach Hemming in the St Mirren goal. A menace throughout, he would pick up a secondary assist by backheeling the ball to Ralston, who crossed into Palma for the winner. Celtic’s best player this season, he’ll be hoping to get to 20 next week at Hampden. Another strong showing. 8

Nicolas Kuhn - Not a great afternoon for the German winger, who struggled to get anything going for the 90 minutes he was on the park. Not through lack of trying, the wide-man simply could not impact the game the way he liked, as the visitors did well to shut him down. He will have to improve if he is to make the grade at Rodgers’ Celtic in the coming years. Talent only gets you so far. 5

Kyogo Furuhashi - It wouldn’t be trophy day without Kyogo getting in on the act, as he was Celtic’s star player on the day concerning goal involvements. Winning the header that led to O’Riley’s equaliser, he would get on the scoresheet thanks to winning the ball back and passing to his countryman Hatate, before meeting the cross that occurred just a few seconds later. This performance probably gives him the nod over Adam Idah for the Scottish Cup final, but Celtic are spoiled for choice at the moment in attack. Brilliant from the man from Japan. 8

Luis Palma - What an odd game the Honduran had, though a happy ending occurred at the end of it. Palma - like Daizen Maeda, Yang Hyun-jun and Kuhn - is so inconsistent, with flashes of brilliance keeping the supporters onside with the winger. Some brilliant crosses mixed with poor duels was the order of the day from the player, though he was at the right place at the right time to tap home the winner. Has to improve, but credit to him for continuing to play right until the end. 7


Adam Idah - Replacing Kyogo, the Irishman had a couple of nice touches, but did not affect the game all that much. Still, a talent that Celtic should sign up for next campaign. 4

Tomoki Iwata - Came on for Hatate, the Japan midfielder played some nice passes. A reliable outlet in the midfield as always. 4

Liam Scales - Came on for the injured Welsh, and slotted in nicely. Some slack passes, but got the job done. 4

Paulo Bernardo - Was given the final few minutes in place of the captain. Who knows if that was his last game at Celtic Park. One to keep an eye on in the weeks ahead. 2

Scott Bain - Played the role of allowing Hart the chance of a standing ovation. Don’t think he had a single touch of the ball! Nice to see him get on the park. 1
