CELTIC’S Development Side were beaten 3-1 by Blackburn Rovers in a friendly match at the Premier League club’s training ground on Tuesday afternoon.
Filip Twardzik was on target for the visitors - whose starting XI consisted almost entirely of under-19 players - from the penalty spot midway through the second half after Paul Slane had been felled in the box.
Although disappointed to lose the game, coaching staff were delighted with the players’ performance and progression against a side featuring the likes of Scott Dann and Yakubu.
CELTIC (4-2-3-1) Cervi; Toshney, Fraser, Jones (Miller 45), Chalmers; Irvine, F. Twardzik; Slane, George, Williamson; Alabi ( Bogle 48)
