Watch Behind The Scenes as Celtic beat St Mirren 2-0

Celtic TV has produced an interesting video showing behind the scenes coverage of the 2-0 win away to St Mirren.

The match action is very low key due to thousands of empty seats in the three stands given over to Saints supporters, behind the other goal it was standing room only as the visitors were cheered on to a place in the quarter-final.

There are a few interesting insights into what goes on behind the scenes, the Celtic kit is laid out in the away dressing room two hours before kick-off which appears to be a give away to the team line up which is announced 75 minutes from the start of the match.

Loan bhoy Kwon Hyeok-kyu is spotted in his St Mirren kit stopping to sign autographs but he never got any closer to the action than watching from the stand, picked up by Viaplay Sports behind the away dug out.

A lot was riding on Sunday’s match but you wouldn’t detect that from the warm up, once the game got underway it had the feel of a pre-season match rather than an old fashioned cup tie being played to a finish between two of the top clubs in the country.

The Celtic TV camera is well positioned to capture the build up for the opening goal from Kyogo Furuhashi, as he slides the ball home there is barely any hostility from the home fans, in the distance there is a din from the Celtic support as their side builds on the late midweek win away to Hibs.

Both of Alex Gogic’s overhead kicks are included, the second brings out a great save from Joe art as Celtic take their lead into the half time break.

Switching end, as fans used to do in the good old days, the camera picks up the build up play from Luis Palma, the thud of Matt O’Riley’s shot on the crossbar followed by Daizen Maeda popping the rebound into the net.

From there on it was a fairly routine win on the road for Celtic, free from drama as substitutes Yang Hyun-jun, Paulo Bernardo and Oh Hyeon-gyu try to get on the scoresheet.

At the final whistle the players and Brendan Rodgers salute the fans, after three matches on the road it is back to base on Saturday for the visit of Kilmarnock with Celtic almost certain to kick off that match in second place in the SPFL Premiership table.
