MATT O’RILEY is off the mark for Denmark, the Celtic midfielder scoring against Tunisia on Tuesday afternoon to draw his country level.

Matt opted to play international football with Denmark after qualifying through the grandparent rule and it looks like he’s beginning to make his mark.

O’Riley has had a whirlwind six months, moving from MK Dons to Celtic, playing his part in a successful Celtic title winning league campaign and getting a call-up to the under 21s.

The player has never seemed phased by any of it, he was famously a starter in the Celtic’s three bill drubbing of The Rangers back in February when he played the occasion incredibly well after not long joining the club.

Matt has a very bright future at Celtic and in the game in general, he is a very talented midfielder who will only get better as the years go on.

It’s going to be a big season next term for the Danish Under 21, if he plays to the best of his ability, he could be looking at a Celtic Player of the year award.
