Over the years, Scotland’s Premiership has witnessed some prolific goal scorers. Unfortunately, most are affiliated with one club specifically.
After Hearts, Kilmarnock and Aberdeen all still remained in contention for a top-six finish, Tynecastle was expected to be an evenly-balanced affair until Kyogo Furuhashi scored his 30th goal from Reo Hatate’s cross.
1. Kyogo Furuhashi’s 30th goal of the season against Hearts
Kyogo Furuhashi has shown great goal scoring form since arriving at Celtic, scoring 30 goals this season so far against Hearts at Tynecastle alone! Ange Postecoglou is delighted by his prolific striker’s goalscoring prowess as they cruise towards Scottish Premiership glory under Ange Postecoglou’s management.
Hearts pressed hard for an early lead but were quickly hindered when Alex Cochrane received a controversial red card via Video Assistant Referee intervention, leading to an impressive second half display from Celtic with substitute Oh Hyeon-gyu scoring a late winner to give them their title with four games remaining, thus sealing their domestic double in 2016.

2. Daizen Maeda’s hat-trick against Hibernian
Daizen Maeda has shown signs of rediscovering his form for Celtic after an uncertain start to the season, giving himself an excellent chance at winning Scotland’s top flight’s Golden Boot this term.
He has proven a constant threat to opposing defences with his lightning pace, evident by his work rate in the opposition box and reported by Wyscout’s expected goal metric as having missed several opportunities already this season.
Ange Postecoglou felt vindicated after fielding both of his J-League signings against Hibernian on Sunday. Forward Maeda netted less than four minutes into his debut while midfielder Reo Hatate also scored to give Celtic the 2-0 win and it provided both players an invaluable opportunity to showcase themselves against quality opposition.
3. Bojan Miovski’s hat-trick against Dundee Utd
Aberdeen striker Lewis Strevens had already made headlines after missing two penalties against Livingston and having his effort saved against Hibs, yet showed no lingering effects when he calmly slotted home the first half winner at Almondvale. Strevens cost PS535,000 in the summer and his goals have helped the Dons maintain their pursuit of top six finish.
Jim Goodwin confirmed on Monday that Miovski will remain the Dons penalty taker, despite reports linking him with Stade de Reims. Additionally, Goodwin applauded Miovski’s courage when taking the winner against a hostile crowd on Saturday.
The Scottish Premiership split has come under scrutiny from pundits and journalists, but its effect has been to add extra excitement to the final stretch of the season, with Kilmarnock, Dundee United and Hibernian all fighting hard to secure a European place.
4. Barrie McKay’s hat-trick against Ross County
On Saturday, Aberdeen, Dundee United and Kilmarnock all played, shifting the battle for a top-six finish into overdrive. But interim Hearts manager Steven Naismith’s triumph against Ross County provided just what he needed before those important fixtures.
Josh Ginnelly and McKay had early efforts that went wide for the Jambos before Cochrane took advantage of Laidlaw’s slipup by sliding a low shot under him for two goals in 22 minutes.
After halftime, Ayr’s hopes of an comeback were dashed when McKay took advantage of Lindsay’s pass near the edge of the penalty area and unceremoniously fired an unstoppable strike past Doohan. Ayr came close to pulling one back just after 60 minutes when Jordan White’s header clattered against the crossbar but were ultimately unsuccessful in pulling back any points from that situation.

5. Lawrence Shankland’s hat-trick against Dundee Utd
Many had doubted Lawrence Shankland would ever score a hat-trick for Dundee United, yet his performance against Partick Thistle showed just why he is an outstanding Championship player.
The Tangerines made significant strides toward winning their inaugural championship with a 4-1 victory at Firhill. Shankland set them on their way with an early header before Adrian Sporle extended their advantage from close range.
Celtic came back from being behind to beat Hearts 3-1 in Ange Postecoglou’s 100th game as manager and win 3-nil on Ange Postecoglou’s 100th match day as manager, scoring through Josh Ginnelly, Daizen Maeda and Kyogo Furuhashi as they moved 9 points clear of Rangers at the top of Premiership table.
