Touched the ball about three times the entire game. Never had a save to make and never looked like having to make one as soon as Aberdeen went down to ten men. (6/10)

A Lustig performance of old. The Swedish right-back was not only solid defensively - not always a given these days - he also got forward to support the attack well. His cross for Hayes led to the penalty award. (8/10)
Not a vintage performance from Celtic's favourite son. He wasn't asked too many questions defensively, but his distribution was surprisingly lax and he wasn't much of a force driving from deep. (6/10)

Sam Cosgrove wasn't given much help as Aberdeen's lone striker, but Ajer and Simunovic still deserve credit for how well they played the towering target man. (7/10)
Aberdeen might have been bolstered by his selection before the match, but the defender turned in an excellent display. Dominant at the back, he was also a threat going forward. (8/10)

Brown's performances have been a little up and down this season, but this was certainly one of his better ones. Broke up numerous attacks and was composed in possession. (8/10)
Was a little quiet until he cut inside on his left foot in first-half stoppage time and hit a sweet strike into the top corner of the net. Was much livelier in the second period. (8/10)

Typical display for the versatile midfielder as he floated around the attacking third, finding space and linking with team-mates. (7/10)
Had some good touches and fired in the penalty which effectively killed the game. Has well and truly reclaimed his place as Celtic's No.1 option in attack. (7/10)

Was a little quiet before his time on the park was brutally cut short by a clash of heads with Dominic Ball. Taken to hospital with a suspected broken cheekbone. (6/10)
Like Forrest, there wasn't an awful lot that came off for Hayes in the first half but another who turned it on in the second period. Won the penalty off Michael Devlin and continually drove at the Aberdeen back-line. (8/10)

Was more involved in open play than Christie and netted Celtic's third with a low shot from 20 yards. (8/10)
Threatened on a few occasions after coming on for Forrest but couldn't find a final ball. (6/10)

Had a couple of opportunities but this was one of those appearances where Sinclair seemed to lack a spark. (6/10)
