Giorgos Giakoumakis scored a hattrick once again to help Celtic produce one of the comfortable football results of the weekend in the Scottish Premiership. Giakoumakis opened the scoring in the 11th minute before doubling their lead in the 18th minute. Daizen Maeda made it three in the 26th minute before Kayne Ramsay was sent off in the 28th minute for the visitors. The Greek striker completed his hat-trick when he scored from the penalty spot in the 61st minute.
Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou: “Dave Turnbull is available, he has trained the last 10 days. He was fantastic for us in the first half of the year and it was disappointing for him that he got a fairly significant injury that has kept him out for a while. But he has worked hard in rehab and I know he is itching to get back out there. He has been training really well over the last seven to 10 days. I was probably a bit conservative with him, I could have maybe thrown him in last week, but watching him train he is ready to go and I think he will be important for us. He’s a quality player, he is a goal threat, he is good on set-pieces and I think he adds something to our team.”
“Jota and Liel Abada are all good, they have trained all week. They missed Monday night but it wasn’t anything too serious,” he added. “James Forrest pulled up a bit sore from the other night. Again, nothing too serious but he will miss Saturday. We will just wait and see. I said a while back that Dave got injured before Kyogo so read into that what you like. But without putting any time frames on it, he is working on his rehab and I’m sure he will be available soon.”
