Here’s how we rated the Celtic stars as they won 2-1 against Hamilton to stay at the top of the Scottish Premiership League table.

Celtic hosted Hamilton on Wednesday evening in Parkhead during a Scottish Premiership League clash. Ryan Christie got the scoring started early, and it looked like the Hoops would easily roll to a 1-0 win over Hamilton. However, in the final minute of regulation, Hamilton evened things up, and it looked as if the Hoops would have to settle for the draw.

Luckily, the Hoops captain, and legend, Scott Brown reclaimed the lead in the third minute of extra time. The win gave the Hoops extra cushion in the Scottish Premiership League after Rangers dropped two points in a draw to Aberdeen. Here are our player ratings from Wednesday’s match.

Fraser Forster-5.5

Forster gave up a huge goal in the final minute of the match. He did not receive much help from his backline most of the game, and made some huge plays throughout the game. However, his complacency allowed Hamilton to have a chance in the end.

Moritz Bauer-6

Bauer showed his skill throughout the game, and looked to be a capable replacement for Hatem Abd Elhamed. His skills with the ball help set him apart.

Nir Bitton-6

Not much to say on his front. Despite an early foul, he played well in Christopher Jullien‘s absence.

Kristoffer Ajer-7

Ajer looked great on Wednesday night. He had a good shot on goal, and played his regular, dominant position at the centre of the back line. Great stuff from the star.

Greg Taylor– 4.5 

in a match that we were hoping to see some stark improvement out of him, he did not deliver. His two fouls did little to help his cause, and his lack of offensive capability is noticeable. The return of Boli Bolingoli-Mbombo will be necessary to slow down Rangers on Sunday.
