Former Celtic wonderkid Tony Watt praised by Charlton team-mate after Championship performance

Charlton Athletic - The Valley

The Scottish striker bagged a brace as Charlton defeated Huddersfield 3-0.

Charlton pulled well clear of the relegation zone today with a comfortable 3-0 win against Huddersfield at The Valley.

The Addicks were deserving winners with striker Tony Watt undoubtedly the star of the show. He bagged a brace while Johann Berg Gudmundsson scored the other as a rampant Charlton put their former boss Chris Powell to the sword.

After the game the Icelandic midfielder Tweeted his joy at the result and his praise of Watt, a player whose career has certainly had its ups and downs.

Watt scored a memorable goal on his Champions League debut for Celtic, netting a strike against Barcelona that proved to be the winner back in 2012.

It was a fantastic story for a player who 18 months earlier had been playing for Airdrie United.

He struggled for first-team football at Celtic after that memorable moment and ended up heading to Lierse on loan for 2013-14 and joined Standard Liege in the summer.

However, amid claims of a poor attitude and being overweight (which he certainly wasn't) he left the club under a cloud in January, joining Charlton.

Today was certainly the nearest glimpse to his actual ability Charlton fans have had since this one time Celtic wonderkid arrived at The Valley.

Charlton fans will hope to see plenty more of this Tony Watt for the rest of the season.
