Celtic's Stefan Johansen acknowledges great international week for his country

Celtic Football Club Wide

The Celtic star has had seven days to remember for the right reasons.

Celtic midfielder Stefan Johansen has taken to Twitter to celebrate after Norway won back-to-back matches against Bulgaria and Croatia during this international break.

The two victories ensured Johansen’s country are now one point clear of Croatia in second place and two points behind Group H leaders Italy.

With the top two sides qualifying automatically for Euro 2016 Norway’s victories were hugely important.

Johansen set up the only goal of the game against Bulgaria and played the full 90 minutes against Croatia a few days later, and after the successful double-header the Celtic star took to Twitter to write a succinct summation of his time away from the Bhoys.

“Great week,” the 24-year-old wrote, and he will now head back to Celtic seeking to maintain his great start to the new domestic season.

Johansen has already featured 10 times for Celtic, scoring three goals and providing five assists to date, and having returned from injury he will want to feature in the match against Aberdeen directly after the international break.

Celtic are currently one point clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership table but Aberdeen are just a point behind them with a game in hand.
