Trialist on show as Celtic beat Shamrock Rovers


Julien Baudet Celtic newsFrenchman Julien Baudet played the full 90 minutes tonight as a Celtic XI beat Shamrock Rovers 2-0 tonight in Dublin.

Neil Lennon took a strong squad over to the Irish capital with Freddie Ljungberg, Efrain Juarez, Marc Crosas and Glenn Loovens all starting the match alongside youth team regulars Stephen O’Donnell, Kieran Brennan and Filip Twardzik.

Braudet has been on trial with Celtic for the last week and teamed up with Loovens in the centre of defence tonight.

The 32-year-old is vastly experienced having played for Oldham, Rotherham, Notts County and Crewe as well as Seattle Sounders and Colorado Rapids in the MSL.

After a goal-less first half Murphy volleyed Celtic into the lead in the 54th minute after good work by Twardzik down the right wing with fellow Irishman Graham Carey doubling the lead shortly afterwards.

    Surely the time has not come when Celtic are recruiting players who have barely shone in the English lower leagues.

    Give youth players a chance and stop bringing in sub standard foreign trialists!

  • Joe McHugh says:

    Jamie Church, listed as a sub for the match, was the club security officer for the trip.
