Encouraging for Celtic

Johnston is a very talented and promising young striker, and he is taking the chances he is being given by Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers at the moment.

The striker was on target during the Hoops’ 3-0 victory over Motherwell at Celtic Park in the Scottish Premiership on Wednesday evening as well.

Perhaps Celtic do not need to sign a striker in the January transfer window, as they already seem to have a gem on their books.

Johnston can only improve in the coming weeks and months, and scoring goals on a regular basis is going to be a massive boost to his confidence.
