Celtic fans thrilled by Mikey Johnston’s pre-season performance in Austria

Celtic fans were left thrilled by the performance of winger Mikey Johnston during the club’s first pre-season friendly of the summer against Austrian minnows SC Pinkafeld on Wednesday.

The Hoops have been back in training for almost two weeks now, preparing earlier than most teams in Britain due to participation in UEFA Champions League qualifiers in just 12 days time.

Was Georgios Samaras a better player for Celtic than fans gave him credit for? Keith from C’mon the Hoops explains why he was in the video below…

Neil Lennon’s side ran out 6-1 winners and while the result obviously means nothing, fans were nonetheless buoyed by the performance of a very young Celtic team that was mostly made up of players from the club’s academy and reserve sides.

Johnston ran the show in the second 45 minutes, not only scoring twice but also assisting Armstrong Okoflex with a classy, defence-splitting through pass.

The 20-year-old made 23 appearances last term, scoring five times, but with most of those showings coming from the bench, he will be hoping to impress Lennon with a view to starting more matches next season.

Fans certainly enjoyed his contribution this week, taking to Twitter to share their thoughts…
