A 2 – 1 win over Hibs gave Ange Postecoglou his first taste of silverware in Scotland with Kyogo Furuhashi the hero of the game, netting twice as his team came from a goal behind to win.

It is the latest fixture in a busy period for Celtic who face four matches between now and the clash with Rangers on January 2.

At the moment, this will be one of the final matches played in front of a crowd without a cap on numbers for the next three weeks due to restrictions placed on sporting events by the Scottish Government.
