sport news Socceroos hero Aaron Mooy produces stunning man-of-the-match effort for Celtic trends now
Aaron Mooy, shy by nature, looked almost pained after being brought up for interview to collect his latest man-of-the-match award for Celtic.
'He doesn't enjoy doing these [man-of-the-match] press conferences - but he needs to stop playing so well!' joked teammate Greg Taylor, standing alongside the reluctant Socceroo after Mooy's latest 'unbelievable' display in Celtic's 4-1 win at St Johnstone on Sunday.
The 32-year-old Australian simply offered a modest smile - but then gave away nothing else after scoring his sixth goal since Christmas.

The 32-year-old put the match out of reach for the Perth side when he found the net with a beautiful lob in the 37th minute (pictured)
'I'm getting a bit older … but I'm just enjoying what I'm doing day by day, that's as far as I think ahead. So we'll see.'
On this form, manager Ange Postecoglou just can't leave him out the team. 'Aaron was great again,' conceded the boss.
