Matt O’Riley scored a beautiful goal against St Johnstone at the weekend, his second of the game to make it 6-0 to Celtic, before Liel Abada got the 7th and final goal of the game.
Quite rightly the goal is still being talked about, not just for O’Riley’s wonderful bit of skill and beautiful finish into the top corner, but the sheer amount of passes from Celtic in the build up play before the goal.
It was reminiscent of Celtic’s wonderful team goal under Brendan Rodgers against St Johnstone, where Moussa Dembele finished off a 25 pass move that included a rabona cross from Mikael Lustig.
Apparently this goal was even more passes, an incredible 48 in total, with 106 touches.
For us to then score without the opposition getting a touch of the ball in that time is simply outrageous, and an excellent example of how well we are doing under Ange Postecoglou, and a prime example of his famous ‘Angeball’.
You may have already seen the replay of this goal, but this version from Tam Sellic Son, has a voice over from Ange Postecoglou’s training ground instructions, including the famous ‘We Never Stop!’ speech.
It really does give you goosebumbs.
