BW LINZ 0 CELTIC 1
JAMES FORREST fired in the late clincher as Celtic continued their winning ways in Austria tonight.
It was a family affair for the Rodgers with boss Brendan playing his son Anton for the second-half as the midfielder worked on his fitness while looking for a new club after being released by Swindon Town.
The former Brighton youngster made the most of his chance as did the Invincible treble-winners.
It was all low-key stuff, but new Bhoy Jonny Hayes was obviously keen keen to make an impression.
He thudded an effort against the post after reacting to the rebound following Callum McGregor’s effort that hit the bar.
At the other end, Dorus de Vries made a couple of smart stops.
After the turnaround, Keiran Tierney forced the keeper in to an excellent stop after a well-worked free-kick.It was looking like a stalemate until Tierney fed Forrest and the winger coolly took a touch and stuck it away with seven minutes to go.
