Celtic 6-0 Motherwell: Kyogo Furuhashi and Giorgos Giakoumakis score twice as Scottish champions turn on style

Scottish Premiership champions Celtic eased to a 6-0 victory on trophy day; Kyogo Furuhashi and Giorgos Giakoumakis scored a double with David Turnbull and Jota also on target; it was an emotional farewell for Tom Rogic and Nir Bitton as they made their final appearances for the Hoops

Celtic made it a title party to remember as they turned on the style to beat Motherwell 6-0 in their final game of the season.

It was a day of celebration at Celtic Park after they reclaimed the Scottish Premiership title with a midweek draw at Dundee United

Australia midfielder Rogic started the game to the approval of the excited home support as Jota, Furuhashi, Daizen Maeda and Turnbull also came back into the side with Israel international Bitton on the bench.

Well boss Graham Alexander made two changes with Bevis Mugabi and Victor Nirennold, in for his first start since signing in January, replacing Liam Donnelly and Juhani Ojala and they and their team-mates spent most of the first half.


It seemed only a matter of time until Celtic got the breakthrough and it came following a mistake by Nirennold in the 22nd minute.

The French defender miskicked a deep corner from Jota inside the box and the Japan international wasted no time in turning and rifling a low drive past Well keeper Liam Kelly at his near post.

In the 32nd minute, as Motherwell retreated from a rare attack, Jota’s cross from the left was met by the sliding Rogic whose shot rebounded off the post with the offside flag going up or lurking Hoops striker Maeda.
