Patrick Roberts secures victory for the Development Squad with a sublime goal.
Nir Bitton joined the club as one of two late signings in the summer of 2013. The young midfielder arrived with a wealth of experience having broken into FC Ashdod's first team at the age of 17, where he played alongside Efe Ambrose, before going onto make over 100 first team appearances.
The Israeli was handed the No6 shirt and quickly acclimatised to the pace of Scottish football with the defensive midfielder demonstrating both his composure in possession and trickery on the ball to the Celtic support.
He made his Celtic debut against AC Milan in the San Siro, coming on as a late substitute before earning his first start against Morton in the Scottish League Cup.
His first goal for the club would arrive in August 2014 when he scored a penalty against St Johnstone during the Hoops' first game of the season.
Under Ronny Deila, Bitton cemented his place in midfield alongside Scott Brown with the duo forming an impressive partnership.
Bitton scored his second goal of the season and Celtic's fifth of the night with a stunning strike from distance against Dundee, as part of a victory that would ultimately hand Celtic the league title.
The Israeli scored his third goal for the club and his first in Europe to open the scoring away to FC Stjarnan in the Hoops' UEFA Champions League qualifying tie. Bitton would find the net again in Europe when he scored a header against FF Malmo in the play-off stages of the UEFA Champions League.
