European matches have brought many highs to Celtic Park, mostly under the floodlights with many of the memories now getting a little grainy.

Murdoch, Auld, Gallagher, Dalglish, McStay and Nakamura have contributed to the legend, yesterday a young Portuguese player called Jota joined that list with a pass/assist that any club legends would be proud of.

The move started deep inside the Celtic half as Carl Starfelt and Adam Montgomery tried to play the ball out with Ferencvaros players on the case.

When they found Jota the complex of the match turned.

The on loan winger took a few paces forward, team-mate Kyogo had an idea of what was coming next as he raced into space.

Jota’s pass was a thing of beauty, perfectly struck, weighted with back spin Kyogo redirected it on the bounce then fired his shot into the net.

The goal-scorer didn’t know whether to share his elation with the thousands of cheering fans or the team-mate that had provided the pass that every striker dreams of. Soon Jota and Kyogo were sharing the acclaim of the fans with a goal up there with the very best of them.
