Celtic striker Vakoun Issouf Bayo played for the club's reserves today.
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.
Bayo done well had a good chance and got into good positions— paul the tim (@paulthetim) February 11, 2019
61 Bayo comes off, made some decent positions but he'll need a few more matches like this before he close to first team level.— Joe McHugh (@videocelts) February 11, 2019
Bayo off after 60, judgment reserved.— StevieC (@GlasgowRoad) February 11, 2019
Boy from Arsenal lighting quick.
Scott Allan looking sharp.
I look younger than Compper.

Oxo-Flex looks a player. Bayo not so much.— Elliot Smith (@elliotsmith93) February 11, 2019
Bayo getting an hour in the reserve game hopefully see him at some point at the weekend— Chris Gunn (@Gunnie67) February 11, 2019
Bayo gets his first minutes for Celtic, getting into positions for chances but just not got his finishing back yet. Hopefully should come with more games.— SPFL Review (@SPFL_Review) February 11, 2019
Interesting to see how aitchidos does in next couple of years. More goals today. Desperately needs first team football though
First time watching oko flex, he’s going to be a good player, I like that Kerr Mcinroy as well. Big bayo done ok, likes to play on the shoulder of CB, had a couple of good chances to score— DBHOY (@bigvid84) February 11, 2019
