Celtic defender Greg Taylor's post-match interview was hilariously interrupted by a bout of hiccups.

The Scotland international was speaking after the Hoops defeated Aberdeen 4-0 at Parkhead.

Goals from Callum McGregor, Liel Abada and a double from Reo Hatate helped the Scottish champions remain nine points clear at the top of the league table. 

And at full-time, as the 25-year-old waxed lyrical about the performance, there was a surprise interruption.

Speaking to the BBC, he said: "Yeah, another strong performance, started the game really well and got the j...excuse me...got the job done.

"Behind the scenes it is really enjoyable, everyone works so hard throughout the week just to get an opportunity at the weekend...I've got the hiccups, sorry."

"The boys any time they get given an opportunity, even the subs coming...on today, have high standards.

"The manager sets the tone, we all know we can't falter from his standards. Now that we have a strong group, everyone is so eager to play, so eager to do well and impress so every day the level is...really high."

Meanwhile, Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou joked that Kyogo Furuhashi was "angry" on the bench and that is why he put him on against Aberdeen.

He suffered a shoulder injury in the previous fixture against St Mirren but recovered in time to be included in the squad.

Oh Hyeon-gyu led the line for the Scottish champions for the first time before Kyogo then came on as a late substitute. 

And Postecoglou revealed why the South Korean started the game against Barry Robson's side.

He said: "John Kennedy just kept telling me, 'you better put him on as he is getting angry' so I did not really have much choice.

"I thought he was going to sneak on at one point. I thought before the game it was a good chance to give Oh [Hyeon-gyu] some minutes because Kyogo has been outstanding in recent times.

"It was going to be hard for us to find Oh a game given the fact we are playing a game a week at the moment. I did not want to wait too long before giving Oh a start and I thought today was a good opportunity to do that.

"Kyogo is raring to go for next week."
