Other tips

  • Furuhashi scored in Celtic's last game versus St. Mirren in the National Cup competition

Player to Watch: Matt O'Riley

It is not a surprising fact that Celtic is the most efficient team in the Scottish Premiership, and Matt O'Riley is their leading scorer with ten goals. The versatile central midfielder has been playing above expectations and the fact that he is not a striker while still putting plenty of goals in the back of the net is impressive enough.

The 23-year-old player was born in London, and has multiple citizenships, but surprisingly chose to represent Denmark for whom he made a single appearance thus far.
