    Came off the bench for the last half hour to make his debut. Replaced John Swift who was playing as the 10.

    Off the mark for WBA. Decent finish first time though keeper will be a bit disappointed…

    Hopefully he can stay fit for the run in, maybe get himself a permanent move out of Celtic.

    Incidentally, using Transfermarkt and some not unrealistic but slightly creative accounting, Johnston's goal is the 100th Irish goal in the Championship this season. Which is good going considering it's still only February.

    Well he's scored 18, so that would leave 82. 50 of which were scored by players born 1998 or later (i.e. Kenny's Under 21 team onwards).

    That's a class goal. And as Stu said his long dribble before the third was a key "pre-assist"

    Good goal alright ~ The two opposing defenders didn't cover themselves in glory, if you were a supporter of that club.

    You have to love players like that.

    Also radio commentary is great too.

    The combination of the two? Mwah!

    There was another chance between the 2nd and 3rd goals where MJ carried the ball through and found the right pass to the supporting player to pass back to another player who had a shot that went just wide of the target - the cut back nearly found MJ who had continued his run. A lot of the criticism he gets from Celtic fans over the years is his decision making / end product. I know its a small sample size but he is definitely showing an improvement along those lines since he went to WBA. Some players just need to be loved.

    Johnston with another brilliant goal this evening.

    Considering he couldn't really get in the first team at Celtic I'm curious to hear the thoughts on why he's doing well in Championship when he was up against supposed "League 2" opponents in Scotland

    Paddy McCourt turned down Albion for Celtic. Maybe a mistake in retrospect. Perhaps being technically excellent is an impediment to success in the SPL.

    Guess we're lining up with a front four of:

    Ogbene Szmodics Johnston
    .............Ferguson

    Pity we haven't got a decent midfield two that could sit in front of the back four.

    A coach that put his arm around him and put some trust in him, playing to his strengths.

    That’s a goal of the month contender right there.
