The Celtic right-back enjoyed an excellent full debut under Neil Lennon.

Celtic were given a bit of a scare against Kilmarnock this afternoon.

Eamon Brophy's opener after the half-hour mark looked like being enough to give the visitors a 1-0 lead going into the break.


But Odsonne Edouard scored twice either side of the half-time whistle as Celtic led 2-1 on 53 minutes.

Ryan Christie put the result beyond doubt four minutes later, but it was touch-and-go for the Hoops for a little while.


In addition to the three points, there were a number of positives from a Celtic perspective in the form of individual performances - and Moritz Bauer looked particularly impressive.

Bauer, who made his full debut for the Bhoys, looked excellent going forward and in defence, and on another day the Swiss right-back - loaned by Stoke City - might've had a couple of assists to his name.

Here's how Celtic fans reacted to his first start:

Bauer, a £5 million signing by the English club [The Daily Mail], was a touch fortunate to avoid serious injury after being on the receiving end of a Jordan Jones lunge against Rangers earlier this month.

So far, he looks a very tidy player and it's exciting to see how he gets on down the line.
