Ange Postecoglou named a team without any of the internationalists, giving a couple of B-team players a chance from the off. Lawal and Kenny both started the match.

At the back, Lawal had a relatively easy shift but was still impressive. He strolled through the game, barely breaking a sweat.

Johnny Kenny was impressive up top. He bagged himself a brace, showing great composure for his goals. The January signing was unlucky not to leave with the match ball after Chris Jullien nabbed what would’ve been his third goal.

Ange then changed it up at halftime, bringing on Anderson, Summers, and Vata. The latter of the trio got his name on the scoresheet. After being played through one-on-one, Rocco kept his cool and struck the ball into the top corner.

Ange Postecoglou has been impressed with the contributions of the youth players. Post-match, Ange postecoglou told Celtic TV;

“It’s been good. Through the pre-season, we’ve had guys coming in at different stages, so this is a window of opportunity for the young bhoys to come in and experience the environment and for us to have a look at them.

“They’ve all acquitted themselves well. they all realise what’s required at this level and they’ve been solid contributors as they were today.”

Celtic’s Bright Future

Celtic certainly has some stars of the future at the club. They must aid their development and keep them at the club by offering a clear pathway to the first team. Giving them opportunities like they got Wednesday will certainly help their cause, demonstrating what they can contribute in front of the manager
