Daniel Arzani gave Celtic fans a tantalising glimpse of the future during a 20 minute run out against Dundee.

The talented teenager replaced Tom Rogic in the 57th minute but 20 minutes later he was stretchered off with what looked like a knee injury after slipping on the turf.

In-between times he showed great confidence and close control on the ball and almost set up Kieran Tierney for a goal.

After five reserve team appearances Arzani was called up for his first taste of top team action when he was named as a substitute for the visit to Dundee.

With the hoops 4-0 up at the interval a debut for the young Australian was assured, after Ryan Christie scored the fifth Arzani and Lewis Morgan were given their chance.

Despite being stretchered off the on loan Manchester City winger was later seen walking with his injury due to be assessed by Celtic’s medical team over the next few days.

Celtic’s 5-0 win lifted them into second place, four points behind Hearts thanks to Kilmarnock dropping two points by drawing 1-1 at Ibrox.
