Ange Postecoglou's Celtic side keep hammering in the goals, David Turnbull helping himself to a hat-trick as they smashed 10-man St Mirren 6-0 at Parkhead.

Saints boss Jim Goodwin had to watch the cinch Premiership match on a stream from his house after testing positive for COVID-19 in midweek and he must have winced at the punishment handed out by the home side in the first half.

Israel international Liel Abada put Celtic ahead in the 17th minute and by the time the 19-year-old winger had headed in a second five minutes later, Saints midfielder Alan Power had been given a straight red card for a foul on Turnbull, who then grabbed a double himself before the break.

Returning striker Odsonne Edouard added a fifth in the 62nd minute and Turnbull completed his hat-trick in the closing stages to complete a sixth win in a row for Postecoglou's rejuvenated, goal-hungry Hoops.

Celtic face AZ Alkmaar in their Europa League play-off tie in the Netherlands on Thursday night with a 2-0 lead from the first leg before the first Old Firm game of the season against Rangers at Ibrox next Sunday, and they could hardly be in better form.

There was also a boost for the former Socceroos' boss Postecoglou in his Celtic rebuild as the club announced an agreement with Polish side Legia Warsaw over the transfer of Croatian defender Josip Juranovic to Parkhead on a five-year deal.
