When Matt O’Riley made his Celtic debut against Hearts at Tynecastle in January he could barely draw breathe when he was interviewed afterwards by Sky Sports. 

Just over three months later the midfielder is on the brink of lifting the SPFL title having made a significant impact as Ange Postecoglou recharged his squad for the second part of the season. 

As a bonus O’Riley is now on the radar of the Danish national side with the prospect of Champions League football in the autumn to accelerate his World Cup prospects. 

Today it was strictly domestic as Celtic made it 25 wins and five draws since they lost away to Livingston in September. 

O’Riley was denied by the post early in the first half but in the 69th minute he scored Celtic’s third to put today’s points beyond the visitors. 

After a four month crash course in Scottish football followed up by pre-season training the former MK Dons midfielder looks like having a growing influence on Celtic next season.
