CELTIC went down 4-3 in Spain to Real Betis on Thursday night but there are positives to take from the performance.
One thing that looks abundantly clear is Celtic have a player on their hand in Jota.
The winger played on the right against Betis away from his preferred position on the left and by all accounts, had a good game.
The winger looked dangerously and set up the first goal for the Hoops on the night. His ability to get the ball into the box will become very useful as the games go on.
The winger played a full 90 minutes after playing the full game against Ross County; it was the winger’s first back to back 90 minutes in two years!
No wonder he was out on his feet by the end of the tie but he can hold his head up high and if he can continue to keep up his level of performance or get better as he finds his feet, Celtic will have a player on their hands.
These fans agree!
I thought Rogic, Jota & Ajeti showed a lot to be positive about tonight.

Thought Celtic played really well considering how many players were missing Ajeti and Jota were a joy to watch and Rogic turning up helped us majorly. Need to tighten up the defence I dont know why but keep giving away daft goals and teams know they can pressure us

Better than I thought we would be, especially with the inexperience, youth and injuries
Jota or Ajeti our best
Build defensive chemistry (time needed) and we're looking potent
