Joe Hart, Cameron Carter-Vickers and Tom Rogic stood out in Celtic’s huge 2-1 victory away to Rangers on Sunday afternoon.
Ange Postecoglou’s side faced a massive trip to Ibrox, knowing that victory would take them six points clear of their rivals at the top of the Scottish Premiership.
Celtic did exactly that, falling behind to Aaron Ramsey’s early strike but eventually turning the game on its head thanks to goals from Rogic and Carter-Vickers.
According to Sofascore, there were three Hoops heroes who stood out on the day, and we’ve taken a deeper look through their numbers to get the beat on Ange’s star men, who won a combined 14 duels and made ten clearances.
Hart – 7.3/10
Hart started between the sticks and he produced an immaculate performance, on a day when Celtic’s backs were against the wall in the second half.
The veteran goalkeeper made three saves inside the penalty area, proving to be a constant thorn in Rangers’ side and showing all of his experience, with the low save to deny Fashion Sakala late on particularly impressive.
Hart made five saves overall, in what was arguably one of his best performances in a Hoops shirt.
Carter-Vickers – 7.7/10
Carter-Vickers received the highest rating at Ibrox, following a magnificent display at the heart of the defence.
The 24-year-old made a monstrous nine clearances in a season-defining encounter, as well as winning seven out of nine aerial duels and making three interceptions.
There was also the small matter of Carter-Vickers scoring the winning goal, firing home low like a seasoned striker.
Rogic – 7.4/10
Rogic was Celtic’s other goalscorer on the day, equalising early on to silence the Ibrox crowd, and he only grew from that moment onwards.
The Australian was an influential presence in midfield, winning six out of ten ground duels and successfully completing three out of five dribbles.
Rogic also made one tackle, as he thrived both on and off the ball.
