Celtic: Rogic, Forrest and Montgomery struggle v Hearts

Celtic: Rogic, Forrest and Montgomery struggle v Hearts -Celtic

Celtic secured a crucial 1-0 victory against Hearts at Parkhead on Thursday night.

Kyogo Furuhashi was the match winner with his 14th goal of the season, but the win came at a cost, with Anthony Ralston, Jota and Stephen Welsh all limping off.

Here at The Transfer Tavern, we look into the three worst-rated Celtic players as per statistical specialists SofaScore, with players required to feature for at least 45 minutes for ranking.

Tom Rogic – 6.0/10

Rogic returned from injury to make his first start since October, but the central midfielder was comfortably Celtic’s worst-rated performer last night.

The 28-year-old was once again alongside Callum McGregor and David Turnbull in a three-man midfield but lost the ball a whopping 30 times. Rogic also lost 15 of his 20 duels, failed to complete any of his seven attempted dribbles and made just two tackles all night.

Not exactly the return to action he would’ve liked…

James Forrest – 6.4/10

Next up is Forrest, who featured in a front three with Furuhashi and Jota. The Scot also had an evening to forget, missing two big chances, losing possession on six occasions and losing five of his seven duels.

The 30-year-old, who is still yet to score in the Premiership this season, also failed to make any defensive contributions all night despite playing the full game at Parkhead.

Adam Montgomery – 6.6/10

The final man on the list is Montgomery, who came on for Ralston after 37 minutes. The 19-year-old made his 15th appearance of the campaign but struggled to get to grips with Hearts’ Barrie McKay.

Montgomery lost the ball seven times, made just one tackle and failed to get forward to attempt a cross. He was also second-best in six of his 10 duels, meaning the trio featured in this article lost 70% of their duels overall.
