Celtic fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to the performance of Leicester City-owned defender Filip Benkovic against Hibernian.

Benkovic, who joined Glasgow giants Celtic on loan from Premier League club Leicester in the summer transfer window, featured for the Hoops in their Scottish Premiership match against Hibs at Celtic Park on Saturday afternoon.

Although Brendan Rodgers’s side conceded two goals in their 4-2 win, the performance of the 21-year-old central defender was very encouraging and very good.

 

The win against Hibernian means that the Hoops are now second in the Scottish Premiership table with 19 points from nine matches, just three points behind leaders Heart of Midlothian.

Celtic fans were impressed with the display produced by the 21-year-old Croatia Under-21 international central defender, who joined Leicester from Dinamo Zagreb in the summer transfer window for a fee reported by Sky Sports to be worth £13 million.
