Callum McGregor was the official man of the match as Celtic produced a second-half comeback to beat St Johnstone this afternoon.

But the Hoops skipper did not agree with Sky Sports' decision, as he openly admitted that Mikey Johnston would be awarded.

The Scotland international was full of praise for his club teammate who made the desired impact at McDiarmid Park.

Johnston was bright on the wing after being substituted at half time. He has certainly given Brendan Rodgers food for thought regarding his position in the team moving forward.

Post-match, the Republic of Ireland international was tasked with handing his man of the match award to his captain.

But after doing so, McGregor suggested that he would be getting it straight back off camera.

He said: "He was outstanding and he's been training like that for a while. It's brilliant to see him getting back in, he made a huge contribution and gave us a different dynamic as well.

"His quality on the ball and his running is everything we want from a winger so I'm really delighted for him and you just keep going now."

As Johnston handed over the award, CalMac responded: "Thanks mate, I'll give you it back later, don't worry."

Meanwhile, Brendan Rodgers admits trailing St Johnstone 1-0 at the break today is the "angriest" he's ever been at half-time in his career.

The champions came from behind to win 3-1 in Perth as they got back to winning ways domestically after last week's stalemate against Motherwell.

Callum McGregor, Matt O'Riley and James Forrest stepped up to the mark in the second half, as their strikes canceled out Diallang Jaiyesimi's opener.

Rodgers gave his players a stern talking-to in the dressing room at the interval, and it seemed to work the trick as they stormed back to claim all three points.
