Player ratings from last night’s superb win over Astana:

Craig Gordon - 6: Had very little to do to be honest, but managed to command his penalty box well when called upon

Mikael Lustig - 7: Did well both offensively and defensively, set up the opening goal with a good pass to Rogic

Nir Bitton - 7: Probably his best performance yet as an emergency centre-back, didn’t let anyone down

Jozo Simunovic - 8: Another solid performance from the player who is Celtic’s best defender

Kieran Tierney - 7: Provided his usual threat going forward, played far better than he did against Astana last season

Scott Brown - 7: Didn’t really dominate midfield like he can but then again he didn’t need to

Olivier Ntcham - 9: Fantastic performance, absolutely strolled the game and marked his appearance with a great pass that set up Celtic’s fourth goal

James Forrest - 7: Seemed to drift out of the game at times but still manged to get on the scoresheet

Tom Rogic - 7: His best performance of the season of far, provided a great bit of skill to set up Celtic’s opening goal

Scott Sinclair - 8: Seen him play better for Celtic yet he still managed to score two goals which is the sign of a very good player

Leigh Griffiths - 9: Great all-round performance, never gave the Astana defence any peace and unlucky that his ‘goal’ will go down as an own goal

Substitutes:

Callum McGregor - 5: Didn’t really get into the game after replacing Rogic

Stuart Armstrong - n/a: Set to sign a new contract at last but was on too late to make an impression
