and Adam Brooks were on the scoresheet tonight as Celtic’s B’s side grafted their way to a 2-0 win over Gala Fairydean.

The visitors were competitive throughout but in another priceless lesson the young Celts stuck to their guns, converting two chances to claim the points.

There were four changes to the side that lost to on Saturday and although Gala aren’t as strong as Morton were noticeably better than on Saturday.

Dickson and McKenzie Carse brought industry to the middle of the park, ahead of them provided some craft and guile with and on the flanks.

Dickson and Carse hit the woodwork in the first 20 minutes but Gala were well organised with the benefit of some experienced campaigners.

Brooks almost headed in front in the 25th minute but 10 minutes later Dickson opened the scoring with his second goal in two appearances. Davidson cut the ball back from the left with the former starlet drilling a low shot into the net.

Wylie shot just over the bar five minutes into the second half but after that the visitors dominated. A succession of crosses into the box caused problems to the defence but fortunately there were no takers.

Twelve minutes from time doubled their lead. Bosan Lawal broke out of defence, threaded a pass through to Brooks who held off his marker then shot low across the keeper to find the net at the far post.

CELTIC: Oluwayemi; Murphy, Lawal, Corr, Paterson:  Dickson (Letsosa 82), Wylie, Carse; Vata, Brooks (Jackson 86), Davidson (Anderson 72)
