Celtic fans can enjoy six minutes of video highlights from the opening pre-season friendly, a 6-1 win over Austrian Fourth Division side Pinkafeld.

There were no new signings on show but a couple of landmarks as Leigh Griffiths scored on his first appearance of 2019 while Armstrong Oko Flex and Ewan Henderson grabbed their first top team goals.

The hosts took the lead in the 28th minute with a goal that Conor Hazard would rather forget but seven minutes later Griffiths had Celtic back on level terms with a tap in from a Calvin Miller pass.

After the break the young team never let up with Mikey Johnston putting Celtic in front 30 seconds after the restart.

Henderson was next to hit the target with a dipping 25 yarder before Oko Flex showed a great touch to slot home Celtic’s fourth of the night.

In the closing minutes Jack Aitchison and Johnston were on target to give the scoreline a truer reflection of the gulf between the teams.

FIRST HALF: Hazard; Ralston, Simunovic, Welsh, Hayes; Christie, Coffey; Oko Flex, Sinclair (c), Miller; Griffiths

SECOND HALF: Doohan; Savoury, Welsh (Miller 69), Morrison, Gutman; Coffey (Oko Flex 69), Robertson; Dembele, Henderson, Johnston (c); Aitchison
