Brendan Rodgers again made changes to his Celtic side, bringing in Cristian Gamboa, Nir Bitton, Gary Mackay-Steven and Ryan Christie. Stuart Armstrong was named captain in the absence of Scott Brown.

A largely uneventful first half was finished off in its dying minutes by a superb Leigh Griffiths free-kick, who was selected ahead of Moussa Dembele. Bitton added a second after the break from long range, his first of the season, putting the match beyond Paul Hartley’s side.
