  • Johnston on target as brilliant Bhoys brush aside Bilbao

    Johnston on target as brilliant Bhoys brush aside Bilbao

    By: Mark Henderson on 26 Oct, 2017 11:59

  • MIKEY Johnston was on target as a Celtic U23 side recorded an impressive 2-1 victory over their Athletic Bilbao counterparts last night in the Premier League International Cup.

    The winger, who was outstanding for the Bhoys last week in the UEFA Youth League, opened the scoring for Tommy McIntyre’s team in the 14th minute.

    Liam Henderson almost doubled their advantage before the break at Woking’s Kingfield Stadium with an incredible 50-yard strike which fizzed inches wide.

    Although the Basque side restored parity early in the second half, the young Hoops wouldn’t be denied as an own goal from Bilbao just before the hour-mark saw them collect all three points.

    The young Celts will be back in action in the prestigious competition at the start of December when they go head-to-head with Manchester United.
