NIR BITTON was handed the captain’s armband on Thursday night as he led a young Celtic side to a 3-2 victory over Real Betis in the Europa League.

The match didn’t have any real consequences so Ange opted to play a much changed side and they made their mark.

Nir played well and continues to show he can be a much better player for Celtic in his midfield position rather than at centre back.

Asked about his role as captain on the night, Nir quipped: “One game, One win, just give me it [The captaincy].

Nir is approaching ten years at Celtic and will be due a testimonial next year. It’s crazy to think the Israeli has been in Glasgow that long.

He flies under the radar a lot and between injuries and only being used as a back up centre back through the years, we’ve not seen a lot of him at times.

He has acquitted himself well in midfield as of late.
