It was a goal of brilliant simplicity, worked between three players with a stunning end product. Fortunately Celtic TV was perfectly placed to capture it all.

Moi Elyounoussi gets the credit for his calculated finish but the Norwegian would be first to pay tribute to Kris Ajer and James Forrest for their contributions to his goal against Lyon

Ajer showed patience to retain the ball, assess the movement in front of hin before releasing the ball to James Forrest.

Elyounoussi and Forrest anticipated the options, gambled a little with the on loan winger driving at the Lyon back line, committing defenders then experting tucking away his shot out of reach from the goalkeeper.

As they showed against Nice on Thursday there is no shortage of fitness in the Celtic squad despite a gap of 131 days between matches.

The games in Lyon have shown that the first XI aren’t far away from top form while half a dozen of the ‘back up’ side look more than ready to step in although like all managers at this stage Neil Lennon will be looking to bring in at least two players to challenge and compete for places in his starting side.
