first_img2/10Expectations were high when Janko joined from Manchester United last summer and the Swiss defender looked like a talent who just needed to become a platform. He spent almost as much time on the bench as on the park in the early weeks of the season before a knee injury ruled him out from October until March.Hasn’t been involved since getting back to fitness but will look ahead to next season with optimism. SNS Group5/10In a back line that’s been subject to regular change throughout the season, Lustig could have been looked on as dependable figure the others could take their level from. The Swede hasn’t had his best season in Glasgow though and might have come under more pressure had Janko been fit. SNS Group7/10A January recruit drafted in to strengthen a troubled defence, Sviatchenko looks on his way to being a favourite at Celtic Park. Since arriving from FC Midtjylland he has proved to be assured and reliable at the back, with his attacking presence an added bonus. SNS Group4/10The path from Manchester City to Celtic is well worn after Jason Denayer and John Guidetti travelled north and the hope was that Boyata would replace the former as a solid contributor at the back.That hasn’t turned out to be the case with the Belgian looking shaky even as the season progressed. Hasn’t done enough to persuade anyone he’ll be a first choice when Sviatchenko and Simunovic can be paired. SNS Group4/10Ambrose has developed a reputation as an accident waiting to happen at the back. This season has done little to change that with competent performances often undone by unforced errors or moments of madness . SNS Group5/10One of the more costly recruits at the start of the season and brought in to fill a key position after the departure of Virgil van Dijk. When Ronny Deila looks back over the season there will be frustration that he was only able to call on Simunovic for 11 league games. Thirty games missed through three separate injuries have stopped Celtic fans seeing his best and stopped him being a major contributor. SNS Group1/10After contributing little in the first half of the season, rumours had it that Blackett’s loan would be terminated early and he would return to Manchester United in January. Nobody would know the difference with the centre-half not being seen in a Celtic jersey for months. Not one of the clubs more successful signings. SNS Group6/10Mulgrew’s absence for over 30 games this season has robbed the side of one it’s more versatile and experienced players. When fit, Celtic have lost only one league game. SNS Group9/10Tierney’s rapid rise this season didn’t just see him become a regular first team player but one of the stand-out performers. Dislodging an international defender is one thing but playing a vital role as not only a defender but also a significant attacking threat marked Tierney out as a star of the present, never mind the future. SNS Group4/10It’s been suggested for some time that Celtic might look to bring in a left back to challenge Izaguirre but it transpired the challenge came from within and the Honduran wasn’t up to the battle. Now indisputably second choice after Tierney, Izaguirre’s contribution this season has been limited. Has only played twice in 2016 and those may be his last games for the club. Celtic clinched their fifth successive league title with victory over Aberdeen on Sunday, winning the 2015/16 Scottish Premiership season.Ronny Deila leaves the club having delivered back-to-back championships, but how did his side rate this season?Leigh Griffiths has been the standout performer for the Hoops, with Kieran Tierney the breakthrough star.But how did the rest fare? Here are player ratings for Celtic’s players over the 2015/16 Scottish Premiership season. SNS Group SNS Group6/10The Israeli rose to prominence last season but has progressed little this term. Never the less, he’s been a solid presence in the centre of the park. SNS Group5/10Captain of the club and considered to be the beating heart of the side, Brown lifts the league trophy but won’t consider this season to be one of his best. Still keen to take responsibility in the centre of the park, Brown’s energy hasn’t been matched with decisive moments in a campaign that’s been peppered with disappointing matches. SNS Group5/10Armstrong might have been expected to kick on from establishing himself in the first team after arriving from Dundee United in January 2015. The managers propensity for changing the three players behind the striker may have been a factor but Armstrong seems to be one of several players stuck in a rut at the moment.Thirty-six appearances in all competitions is nothing to be sniffed at but this season hasn’t seemed like progress for a player of undeniable talent. SNS Group5/10Speaking of undeniable talent, there are plenty of times this season when Celtic fans will have questioned the absence of Commons. Clearly not fancied by the manager, Commons hasn’t been given too many opportunities to play a full game. Four goals in five Europa League games show what he can bring and he delivered a goal or assist in half the league games he’s played.Had the former Player of the Year been a regular 90 minute player his contribution, and score, would surely have been higher. SNS Group5/10In and out of the team, on and off the bench, Mackay-Steven might not have been given a run to get into a groove but he hasn’t often offered the final product to earn a firm place in the team. SNS Group3/10Following a protracted summer transfer saga involving Rangers, Allan made the move to Celtic but has been restricted to just 302 league minutes, to the bewilderment of many Hoops fans. Has shown glimpses of his vision and passing ability in his brief appearances but can’t be happy with his lack of game time. SNS Group7/10After overcoming injury woes in recent years, Rogic has become a reliable big game performer for Celtic this term. His stunning late goal against Kilmarnock at Rugby Park changed the course of the title race and the Australian was impressive in the Old Firm semi-final at Hampden, despite his penalty miss. Rogic is a more mobile playmaker than Kris Commons and the new man can build a team around him. SNS Group5/10Having claimed the Player of the Year prize in 2014/15, the Norwegian’s form has dipped massively this time around. A penalty spat with Leigh Griffiths against Stjarnan set the tone for the midfielder’s season with his place in the starting XI a regular source of debate. Yet to agree a new contract and could follow Deila out the exit door. SNS Group6/10McGregor initially endured a difficult second season, complete with a drink-drive conviction, but improved his goal tally this term. The 22-year-old seems to play in bursts with fine spells in November and March but like many young players he has struggled to deliver consistently. He will have to prove his worth all over again under a new boss. SNS Group4/10Two goals in 36 games is a measly return for a 24-year-old who has been a first-team member and international player for several seasons. Injury issues can no longer disguise Forrest’s failure to fulfil his potential and his decision to reject a new contract will surely spell the end of his time at Celtic Park. A move to new surroundings seems best for all parties. SNS Group9/10Undoubtedly the star of this Celtic team with an outstanding 38 goals, Griffiths earned a PFA Player of the Year nomination after establishing himself as the league’s top forward. While he’s always been a natural finisher, Griffiths has improved his hold up play and ability in the air. The Scotland striker will be looking to make the next step in Europe and at international level. SNS Group7/10A January arrival from Manchester City on an unusual 18-month loan, Roberts has shown he can be a key player next season after making a real contribution in the last few months.The transfer fee the English giants shelled out was indication of his potential and his performances have backed that up with lively attacking play and goals. SNS Group3/10A puzzling signing in the winter window, Kazim-Richards hasn’t exactly shone in his appearances since.A goal against East Kilbride, one against Hearts in the league, and a solitary assist aren’t sufficient attacking returns even allowing for limited game time. Not a real threat to Griffiths in attack and on showing so far no better than the attacking midfield options at the club before his arrival. SNS Group2/10Big name, small return. Arriving in Glasgow as an established name from the English Premier League, Cole looked like a real threat to Leigh Griffiths’ status as top striker. Hardly seen since his arrival, unless you’re on social media, Cole looks like an expensive flop.center_img 7/10The Scotland ace has been a dependable number one for Deila this term, racking up clean sheets and showing he is back to his best after serious injury threatened to end his career. SNS Group2/10The Belgian shot-stopper has only featured four times for Celtic this season and while not letting himself down he didn’t put on any pressure to suggest he will be anything more than a deputy for Gordon.
