Celtic: Josip Juranovic, Jota and Mikey Johnston struggle against Hibs

Celtic: Josip Juranovic, Jota and Mikey Johnston struggle against Hibs -Celtic

Celtic made it five wins from five in October with an impressive 3-1 win against Hibernian on Wednesday evening.

The damage was done in the first 30 minutes at Easter Road with Anthony Ralston, Cameron Carter-Vickers and Kyogo Furuhashi putting the Hoops out of sight.

However, not all of Ange Postecoglou’s men starred, as The Transfer Tavern looks into the three worst-rated outfield starters by statistical specialists SofaScore

Josip Juranovic – 6.3/10

Juranovic was Celtic’s worst-rated performer and had some pretty poor stats to back up that claim.

He lost five duels, gave away possession 15 times and was dribbled past on three occasions.

The right-back didn’t make any impact going forward either, failing to record a successful cross or have a shot on goal.

Will Celtic win the title?

Yes, momentum is gathering!

Jota – 6.4/10

Jota also struggled and just about did enough to avoid being the Hoops’ worst performer statistically.

The 22-year-old has started every game this month but lost 12 duels, failed to have a shot on target or complete a successful dribble.

He also gave away the ball on 17 occasions and was dribbled past three times, earning a rating of 6.4.

How well do you remember these Celtic signings? First up, where did Christopher Jullien arrive from?

Mikey Johnston – 6.8/10

Johnston was handed his first start of the season by Postecoglou but didn’t exactly take advantage.

The Scot didn’t register a shot or a single cross and lost 11 duels in total. The wide man also gave away possession 16 times and was replaced just after the hour mark for Giorgos Giakoumakis.

His performance added more volume to the shouts that he should seek an exit from the club in January, from legends such as Frank McAvennie.
