This is the moment that St Johnstone's Cammy MacPherson and Graham Carey hilariously decided who would take a free kick in their side's defeat to Celtic.

The Hoops ran out comfortable 4-1 winners in Perth this afternoon.

An Andy Considine own goal got the ball rolling for Ange Postecoglou's side, before strikes from Kyogo, Aaron Mooy and David Turnbull finished off the job at McDiarmid Park.

Drey Wright did pull one back for Saints at 2-0 down with a long-range stunner.

However, Callum Davidson's side went down to the champions who look on course to retain their Premiership crown.

One of the undisputed highlights of the game though was not a goal. It was in fact a discussion between two of St Johnstone's players.

Teams often have their designated set-piece takers. For Saints, both MacPherson and Carey are clearly on that list.

But today, one-free kick seemed to have the pair undecided as to who would take it.

MacPherson was fouled by Greg Taylor in a fairly central area just outside the box. It neither obviously suited a left or a right footed player.

So, caught on the Sky Sports cameras, the midfield duo played rock, paper, scissors to make the all important call.

MacPherson came out on top, with his paper beating Carey's rock.

Unfortunately for him and Saints, the dead ball situation ultimately came to nothing as his shot cannoned off the Celtic wall.

Meanwhile, Callum Davidson was largely happy with his team’s performance as St Johnstone slipped to a 4-1 defeat at home to Celtic as he praised the cinch Premiership champions for their lethal touch in front of goal.

“It’s a funny one because normally when you play Celtic your goalie is making save after save,” Davidson said. “They have had four shots on target, which shows how clinical they are.

“In the first half I was actually quite pleased. We were 2-0 down then we showed great character to come back. The last goal we lost was disappointing to go into the break 3-1 down.

“In the second half I thought we stuck to the game plan. We tried to do the right things. I thought we passed the ball well and the unit was good, we tried to press them when we could."
