Two superb goals from last season’s unstoppable hitman Leigh Griffiths did the trick last night and added to Sunday’s 1-0 victory over Sturm Graz in Austria and Thursday’s opening 2-2 draw with the Slovenians of NK Celje.
“It’s really unfair for the players because they are only two weeks in and they are having to come into a really competitive game next week.
“Yet again, everything I asked of the players in this game, the targets we had, were all there to be seen and as the season goes on the fluency will become better and the possession to penetrate will become better.
“What I’m looking at this moment time is that mentality and that defensive organisation and I’m seeing that very clearly.”
Once again, the Hoops boss made 11 changes during the match to give as many players game-time as possible, particularly with the Champions League second round qualifier against Gibraltar side Lincoln Red Imps looming next week.

New signing Moussa Dembele made his Celtic bow in Ljubljana and impressed during his time on the pitch, showing plenty or power and pace and coming close to scoring on several occasion. He also linked up effectively with fellow forward Griffiths.
The manager added: “This is only his first week training, but since arriving he has looked very strong, fast and mobile and you could see that combination up front with him and Leigh Griffiths, and other teams will have someone else to focus on.
Well done to the authors and artists involved…”
