John McGinn in exalted company after double against Celtic
McGinn’s second half brace at Parkhead makes him just the third player to score a double at Celtic’s home ground since Brendan Rodgers took over, and the first in the league.
The other two scorers? Barcelona talisman Lionel Messi and Paris Saint-Germain forward Edinson Cavani.
Messi scored a double as the Catalan outfit defeated Celtic 2-0 in Glasgow in November 2016, while Cavani grabbed a brace in PSG’s 5-0 victory in the Champions League earlier this month.
The former St Mirren player’s brace against Celtic makes him the first Hibs player to score a double at Parkhead since Tam McManus scored two in a 3-2 loss in March 2003.
Under Rodgers, Celtic have never conceded more than once at home on league duty.
The last visiting side to score two goals in a league match at Parkhead prior to Saturday’s draw was Aberdeen, when Niall McGinn and Andrew Considine scored as Celtic ran out 3-2 winners under Ronny Deila.
