Celtic romped back to the top of the Premiership on Saturday with a 3-0 win over Dundee, and fans are full of praise for 19 year-old Mikey Johnston, who is developing wonderfully under the guidance of Brendan Rodgers.
Just four days after netting his first senior goal for he Bhoys, Johnston was rewarded with a start against Dundee.
The Teenager certainly made his manager proud, netting twice as the Bhoys swept their visitors aside in a game that really could have seen even them score five or six goals.
Former Wigan & Fulham man, Jimmy Bullard recently showed that he’s still got it! Check out the video below...
Johnston, who recently signed a new contract with the club, grabbed his first goal of the afternoon just before half time, turning nicely before fizzing a cultured finish past Jack Hamilton.
He added his second with a header just after the break, and the always-impressive Filip Benkovic sealed the three points with 20 minutes to spare.
While there were plenty of impressive performances in another really good home display from Rodgers’ side, there was absolutely no question who the man of the match was.
Rodgers has proven throughout his career that he knows exactly how to get young, attack-minded players flying with full confidence, and he’s definitely working his magic on Johnston.

I am not wanting to get carried away and say that Mikey Johnston is a better player than Brian Laudrup but Brian wasn't even the best player to come out of his maw. Johnston is twice the player.

I’m yet to hear a proper cohesive argument that Kylian Mbappe is a better footballer than Mikey Johnston
