THE BIG STORY: We’ll gloss over a largely second-string Celtic conceding four second half goals to lose 4-0 to Lyon to focus on the positives, the Celtic debuts of Olivier Ntcham and Kundai Benyu. Rodgers described Ntcham as a player who can ‘play at the highest level’ and was so impressed with Benyu that he has shelved plans to send the player out on loan to keep him involved in the Celtic first team squad. Moussa Dembele and Jonny Hayes both started the game whilst Eboue Kouassi played for the first team in pre-season as he attempts to get back to full fitness.

OTHER NEWS: Cristian Gamboa has suffered a torn muscle in his thigh playing for Costa Rica in the Gold Cup, it’s not yet known how long he will be out for.
