Sunburn was his biggest threat as most of the game was played at the other end. It was very quiet before he was unmasked as Inverness came from behind late on. 6


A treble winner just months after arriving at Celtic. As usual, the Canadian full-back put in a solid performance and always tried to contribute to the attacks. 6


He was preferred to Yuki Kobayashi in central defense and covered well until Danny MacKay drifted off him and headed to Inverness. Better off in midfield. 6


The Swede didn’t have much to do but led the Celtic defense without fuss. Maintained his passing style and won his bouts to earn the fifth Hoops honor. 7


In the first half, Daizen frustrated with Maeda’s inability to get back the goal. Was much more effective when Jota switched to the left and had a really good second half. 7


The captain claimed his 19th great honor for Celtic and, as usual, pushed the team forward. A brilliant run and a cutback for the second goal nailed his impact. 7


Saw a lot of possession but seemed a bit sluggish in the first half, wasting one pass after another. The midfielder has been a standout player this season but needs a break. 5


He is Celtic’s most creative midfielder, charging forward to deliver a brilliant opener assist. Isn’t afraid to go on target with a decent performance. 7


The Portugal winger went berserk as Kyogo parried a toe-kick but played a big part in the second goal before firing in the third to knock out Inverness. 7


The Japanese talisman was declared fit and barely touched the ball before slamming in the opener. Should have scored again but has now scored five in three finals at Hampden. 7


The forward suffered an early wound from Wallace Duffy and didn’t get into the game at all. Zero end product and took off during the break. 3

SUBSCRIPTIONS: LIEL ABADA (6) replaced Maeda and fired a brilliant second before setting up Jota. OH HYEON GYU (5) got the last half hour and was heavily involved. DAVID TURNBULL (3) usual late spout SEAD HAKSABANOVIC (4) lively cameo in central midfield and should have scored. JAMES FORREST (1) continue to win the 23rd trophy.


Mark Ridgers

He only had to save once in the first half before Kyogo shot the opening goal past him. The ball went unprotected as Abada blocked the second shot from close range. Caught under the third. 6

Wallace Duffy

Proved to be a tough nut to crack on right-back. Didn’t pay much attention to either Maeda or Abada. Great cross for the Inverness goal. Booked for a tug on Jota.7

Robbie Deas

Won’t be the last defender to struggle dealing with Kyogo’s great movement. More stable than its central defense partner and has done the job well. 6

Danny Devine

Defended brilliantly for half an hour before being dragged through the workshop. He wasn’t alert enough to stop Kyogo on the first goal, and he was miles off his ground on the second goal. submerged. 5

Cameron Harper

Has performed well at left-back although he found it more difficult as Celtic doubled him up throughout the game. Unlucky when the VAR decided his arm played Jota to the side on the second goal. 6

Sean Welsh

Neat move from the experienced captain who kept a cool head in the midfield engine room. Made sure his team was organized and difficult to break, especially in the first half. 6

David Carson

Patrolled the area in front of his defenses with good success. Get moving and use the ball well. A yellow card for hitting the ball against Jota while he was on deck.6

Scott Allardice

Lay down a lung-destroying streak and anchor the Highlanders’ midfield. Coped with several timely interceptions and his passing was exceptional. Always able to choose the right ball.7

Jay Henderson

The St Mirren youngster on loan looked lively every time he touched the ball. Delivered the only true out ball on the right. A bit tired after the break and substituted on. 6

Nathan Shaw

There was no lack of exertion and dedication from the attacker, who was forced to feed on scraps. I tried to advance as much as possible, but options were limited. replaced. 6

Billy McKay

I bought an old person's house and remodeled it - but everyone is distracted

A tough, thankless task leading the Inverness line. Always forced to go deep to get the ball. Spent much of the game chasing shadows. Substituted late. 6

SUBSCRIPTIONS: Dan Mackay: Gave brief hope to Inverness with a stunning diving header six minutes from time. 6 Austin Samuels: Used through the middle in the last 15 minutes but barely got a kick. 3 Zak Delaney: Used to reinforce central defense. 3 Roddy McGregor: Late replaced the impressive Allardice. 2 Aaron Doran: A survivor of the team that won the 2015 Scottish Cup. Given a ten-minute cameo. 2
