Loads of Celtic fans have been reacting to Thursday night’s win over Rosenborg, and they’re heaping praise on loan signing Filip Benkovic.
Everyone under the sun knew where Celtic needed to strengthen in the transfer window, as the Hoops’ defence was an absolute disaster in the Champions League qualifying rounds.
While fans were hoping for some permanent deals, Rodgers and Lawwell eventually settled on Benkovic, who signed on a one-year deal from Leicester City.
The young Croatian is just as inexperienced as the likes of Jack Hendry and Kristoffer Ajer, which was a huge concern, but he looked a class above on Thursday night.
The 21-year-old won an incredible seven aerial duels, while also making four interceptions and four clearances.
He was tidy with the ball as well, completing a simply ridiculous 98 per cent of his passes.
Fans think the management may have pulled a masterstroke with this one, and they’re loving the display vs Rosenborg.

I would give Leicester £13m in a heartbeat.
