Celtic pair earn title medals after thoughtful Ange Postecoglou decision during Parkhead party

By Ben Banks

Coatbridge's Stephen Welsh and Hamilton Accies legend James McCarthy have both been awarded Premiership winners medals at Celtic.

The Hoops lifted the league title on Saturday afternoon after a convincing 6-0 win over Motherwell capped off a brilliant first season under Ange Postecoglou.

Georgios Giakoumakis and Kyogo Furuhashi grabbed doubles while Wishaw's David Turnbull and Jota also got in on the act.

Turnbull and Bellshill-born Anthony Ralston were already eligible for medals ahead of kick-off against the Steelmen but McCarthy and Welsh weren't.

They both sat one game under the criteria to receive a medal for the campaign, but Postecoglou ensured they'd get their prize with a nice gesture.

Both were brought on just after the hour mark with their side's victory all but booked as they led 4-0.

SPFL rules state that players have to participate in 25% or more of league matches to be officially eligible for a medal.

McCarthy joined the club last summer from Crystal Palace in his first return to Scottish football since leaving Accies while Welsh won the Academy Player of the Year award for his performances.
