‘Player Of The Year Elect’ ‘On A New Level Under Rodgers’ Fans Delighted By Celtic Player’s Form

‘Player Of The Year Elect’ ‘On A New Level Under Rodgers’ Fans Delighted By Celtic Player’s Form

Celtic midfielder Matt O’Riley put in another excellent performance against Hearts at the weekend.

His perfectly timed volley from a sumptuous Luis Palma pass opened the scoring at Tynecastle, helping the Hoops to a comfortable 4-1 win.

Fans on X are ecstatic with how O’Riley has been performing at the start of this season, with some crediting manager Brendan Rodgers for getting the best out of him:

O’Riley has found his scoring touch

We are near the end of October, and the Denmark Under 21 international is currently the Scottish Premiership’s top scorer with 6 goals.

Considering O’Riley only scored 4 times in the whole of last season, it not only demonstrates the player’s new-found scoring touch but also the fact that his position has changed slightly since the arrival of Rodgers.

Teams south of the border will be keeping tabs on the Celtic star

Premier League clubs such as Crystal Palace, Newcastle, Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United were reportedly watching O’Riley’s progress even before the start of this season.

It is, therefore, very likely that they are keeping an even closer eye on him following his most recent performances. Celtic will, of course, be determined to keep hold of one of their best players. He has only recently signed a new contract, protecting his value and you would hope that he won’t be sold for a fee below the club’s current record which was set by Kieran Tierney.
