After a mixed start to the season, the Hoops have been outstanding in recent weeks.
David Turnbull (3), Liel Abada (2) and Odsonne Edouard were on the scoresheet as Celtic completely outclassed the Paisley-based outfit.
There were quite a few excellent performances yesterday, but Turnbull certainly caught the eye. The midfielder was unplayable.
Not only did he score a vital hat-trick for his side, he also created important chances for his teammates.
The 22-year-old combined well with Abada and Kyogo Furuhashi throughout the game, and the visitors had no answer to his creativity.
If Celtic continue to perform the way they have done in their last few matches, Rangers will have plenty to worry about in the title race.
Steven Gerrard’s side romped home last season, denying Celtic their tenth successive success in the Scottish Premiership.
However, the Gers may not find things as easy this time around if Celtic continue in the same vein.
Some Celtic fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on Turnbull’s performance – here is what they had to say.
Turnbull is certainly finding his place in the system now. A joy to watch.

David Turnbull was unplayable today in a 6-0 win. The momentum is continued under Postecoglou 👏🍀

David Turnbull with another very impressive performance and a hat-trick to boot. A Rolls Royce of a player who will love being aboard the Ange Postecoglou bandwagon as it continues to build up a head of steam. A couple of huge games away from home coming up next.
