Greg Taylor joked that Aaron Mooy will need to stop playing so well if the Celtic star wants to avoid the limelight.

The Australian midfielder was outstanding once again at the Hoops ran out comfortable 4-1 winners over St Johnstone this afternoon.

He scored his side's third of the day with a delightful lob over Remi Matthews right before half-time. Mooy also notched an assist in the game. 

Speaking to Sky Sports after the match, the ex-Brighton ace was clearly rather shy when in front of the camera. 

And his teammate Taylor cheekily said that he'll need to drop his performance levels if he doesn't want to speak to the media, as Mooy also addressed his future.

Mooy said: "It was a good day. We got the goals in the first half. We clinched another one at the end there, so 4-1, good result.

"I made a late run, Jota chipped it over the top I took a touch and tried to take it early and get it over the keeper. It was a good goal."

Luke Shanley then addressed Greg Taylor. Touching on his thoughts about Mooy's performance, he said: "He's been unbelievable. He doesn't enjoy these press conferences but he needs to stop playing so well.

"He's been amazing, especially since the World Cup, getting a run in the team. Chipping in with goals and assists. We're really pleased to have him.

"We started the game really well. Tough pitch, the ball was bobbling away. To get the goals in the first half gave us full control, second half it was about maintaining that and getting the three points.

"We'll look at it regardless (St Johnstone goal). It was a good strike by Drey. We didn't want to lose any goals, we've been on a good run with that. It's important to continue performing well and getting three points."

Mooy was then asked about commiting his future to Celtic, with Ange Postecoglou previously stating that he was looking to tie him down on a longer term contract.

He replied: "Long term? I'm getting a bit older. I'm just enjoying what I'm doing day by day. That's as far as I think ahead. We'll see."
