WEDNESDAY 28TH JUNE: PRE-SEASON FRIENDLY; BW LINZ 0 CELTIC 1 (FORREST 84')

Celtic's pre-season tour of Austrian started with a 1-0 win over BW Linz, with a late goal by James Forrest, which you can see here.

Jonny Hayes played 45 minutes in his Celtic debut, with starts also for the likes of Brown, McGregor, Armstrong and Griffiths. A raft of changes were made at half-time, with Tierney, Sinclair and Simunovic all involved. The likes of Anthony Ralston, Jack Aitchison, Calvin Miller and Brendan Rodgers' son Anton (as a trialist) also got game time.

We'll have reaction to the game from Brendan Rodgers in the morning round-up. The tour continues against Rapid Vienna on Saturday.
