Celtic got back to winning ways as they beat St Johnstone 3-1 at McDiarmid Park on Sunday with Callum McGregor picking the perfect time to bag his first league goal of the season. McGregor fired them level midway through the second half with one of four shots, and he was unlucky not to add an assist having made three key passes. The 30-year-old also dictated play well having found a team-mate with 92.8 per cent of his 97 attempted passes.
