SHAUN MALONEY may only be in the job a few months but he’s singled out one player for special praise after watching his performance against Bayern Munich in the Champions League Youth Competition.

Speaking about the potential of the Celtic youngsters, Shaun was in no doubt that young Mikey Johnston can follow in the footsteps of Kieran Tierney and Callum McGregor.

“There are definitely things he can improve on and we’ve spoken about them but he’s very good for his age.

“He produced a performance against Bayern Munich that I’ve not seen a Scottish player produce at that level, ever.

“It’s now up to Michael to decide how far he can go in the game.”

Celtic fans have known about Mikey for some time having watched him make his first team debut under Rodgers last term and will be encouraged by Shaun’s high praise of the youngster. Will we see him in the first team again before the season is out?
