ADAM MATTHEWS has warned the Celtic fans not to expect an action replay of his spectacular goal against Hamilton.

The Welsh international right-back smacked a superb effort past Michael McGovern to put the Hoops on the way to a 2-0 win at New Douglas Park.

But Matthews admitted it’s unlikely he will emulate the feat again in this campaign.

He said: “I only score one good goal per season, so that’s probably it!

“Yes, it was a nice strike, I caught it perfectly and it was good to see it hit the net.

“The main thing, though, is that it gave us the lead and we went on to pick up three points.

“I don’t think anyone could have asked more from us.

“The team did really well and I would say that’s the best I’ve played in a long time.

“Of course, it was good to get a goal, but I was pleased with my overall performance and, hopefully, I can now kick on for the rest of the season.”

Liam Henderson, scorer of the killer second goal shortly after the interval, limped off before the end.

However, the 20-year-old midfielder dispelled any fears over a long-term injury.

He said: “It was a bit stupid of me to go and challenge their keeper Michael McGovern.

“I’ve got a bit of a dead leg, but I’ll be okay.

“It was good to get a goal and also thought it was a great performance from the boys.

“It’s always tough at New Douglas Park with a tight pitch and what can be a hostile atmosphere.

“So, it was really good to get the victory. That was all-important.”
