Celtic beat St Johnstone 5-0 on Sunday afternoon, and today it was the turn of the Celtic reserves as they took on Falkirk.

The Bhoys named a strong side at Cappielow, with Dorus De Vries, Marvin Compper and Scott Allan all named in the side.

It was Armstrong Oko-Flex who grabbed headlines, scoring twice for Celtic in a 4-1 win, and fellow forward Jack Aitchison grabbed a brace himself.

 

Falkirk actually took the lead through Shayne Lavery, but Celtic were in cruise control from that point on, recording a convincing win.

The game also saw striker Vakoun Issouf Bayo start, as he looks to build up fitness following his January move from Slovakian side Dunajska Streda.

The Ivorian hadn't played since the 1st of December, and he needs to get sharpness before featuring for Celtic's first team.

Bayo played 62 minutes before being replaced by Leo Mazis, and Celtic fans have been taking to Twitter to share their thoughts on his performance.

Some felt that Bayo got himself into good positions but was just lacking that extra bit of march sharpness to take some chances, though others weren't too enamoured with his first showing in the green and white hoops.
