BBC journalist reveals Celtic duo’s impressive stats that have gone under the radar

The quality that Celtic have all over the park means that we tend to dominate every domestic game with ease.

Our style of play is set up so that whenever we have the ball, it is difficult for opponents to win it back and our possession stats go through the roof.

Our midfield, in the main, is mostly to thank for that. Players like Callum McGregor dictate the tempo and rhythm of the play and the others around him try to unlock defences to secure the three points.

BBC reporter Kheredine Idessane was looking at the teams impressive goalscoring stats and highlighted the important contribution of two Celtic stars that have gone under the radar.

Writing on the BBC website, Kheredine said, “Since the World Cup break, Celtic have played 19 matches, in which Mooy and Hatate have contributed 13 goals and 12 assists between them.

That’s 25 goal involvements from the middle of the park.

Quite a return, and a big driver of Celtic’s surge through all competitions since the festive season.”

The Celtic fans recognise the contribution of Aaron Mooy since his return from the World Cup and how the big Aussie has improved not only his game, but the first team. And Reo Hatate?

He does was Reo Hatate does. Always consistent, the Japanese midfielder is turning into top quality midfielder.
