Celtic continued their pre-season preparations this afternoon, as they beat Hibernian 3-1 in a friendly.

The Bhoys hosted the game at Parkhead, and actually fell behind as Josh Doig put Hibernian on front early on.

Karamoko Dembele hauled Celtic level before half time, and Neil Lennon saw his side kick on after the break.

Patryk Klimala put Celtic ahead, and then added a second to seal the 3-1 win as his strong pre-season form continued.

A number of players turned in strong performances, and substitute Luca Connell showed the quality he possesses in his appearance.

The midfielder came on at half time today, making a rare appearance for Neil Lennon having barely been seen since his move from Bolton Wanderers last summer.

Connell, 19, has yet to make a senior appearance for Celtic, but will now hope to kick on having impressed so much today.

Fans branded Connell ‘an absolute baller’ and ‘excellent’ claiming that he ‘oozes class’ in midfield.

Others wondered where Connell has been hiding, with his strong display ‘unexpected’ having barely seen him in a Celtic shirt so far.
