Odsonne Edouard was the star of the show for the Hoops, as the French striker scored both the goals for the Glasgow giants.


Celtic legend Bonner was following the match, and he was impressed with the display produced by winger Hayes.

The 31-year-old Republic of Ireland international started the match and played for 89 minutes, and Bonner was impressed with his performance at left-back.

Bonner told BBC Sport about Hayes: “Jonny Hayes has been excellent, we wondered how he would do at left-back on this pitch, but he's done the job magnificently, defended well, got himself forward, been a threat down the left side.”

Meanwhile, former Hibernian forward Tam McManus has praised Celtic on Twitter for their success on Twitter.
