A good night for Mikey John­ston

Evening Times - - EUROPA LEAGUE -

John­ston play­ing in the mid­field hole just be­hind Grif­fiths was one of the few pos­i­tive as­pects of the night for Len­non. The teenager, a prod­uct of the club’s academy set-up, has in­tel­li­gence, quick feet and an eye for goal. He came close to net­ting just be­fore the in­ter­val when his ef­fort from the edge of the box was de­flected just wide but he was ar­guably Celtic’s best player of the night.

While the out-and-out striker role of lead­ing the line hasn’t worked, John­ston clearly has some­thing about him. On a night when there was lit­tle of note for Celtic to cheer, John­ston could walk away in the knowl­edge he has made an­other pos­i­tive im­pres­sion.
