A professional performance from Brendan Rodgers’ Celtic side saw them take all three points as they returned to domestic action against Hamilton.
Ryan Christie and the returning Leigh Griffiths got the goals for the Hoops, along with a Scott Martin own goal.
Celtic were denied a penalty very early on when Matt Kilgallon clearly threw out an arm to block the ball, however, it didn’t take them long to get over that injustice to break the deadlock.
Callum McGregor and Odsonne Edouard worked the short corner brilliantly and McGregor found Christie on the move at the front post, with the latter smashing the ball into the top corner.
Celtic dominated the ball in the first half with Olivier Ntcham in particular, heavily involved.
Scott Sinclair had a great chance to double the visitors’ lead after Ntcham found his diagonal run with a lovely lofted through ball but Sinclair could only find Gary Woods in the Accies goal.
Hamilton stood firm despite Celtic’s dominance into the second half with very few clear cut chances coming the way of the Hoops.
Just as the performance level started to drop, Celtic got their second goal to kill the game. Mikael Lustig’s cross found Sinclair who nodded down and a rather lucky deflection off Martin saw the ball bounce into the corner of the net.
In the late stages, substitute Leigh Griffiths was back amongst the goals as he expertly fired the ball past Woods into the far bottom corner from a free-kick. Christie was denied by the post in the final seconds as Celtic eased out the win.
