Video: Scott Allan and Ryan Christie Combine For Celtic Winner Against Graz

Celtic continued their pre-season preparations against Austrian side Sturm Graz this afternoon, with Scott Allan and Ryan Christie combining brilliantly for the winning goal.

Following the 2-2 draw with Slovenian side NK Celje earlier in the week, Brendan Rodgers and his squad knew they’d be in for a tougher time today, but handled the bounce match brilliantly.

As we told you at the time, Rodgers set out with a youthful line-up, giving everyone the chance to impress the new boss, and Christie and Allan didn’t disappoint.

Before half-time, Allan brilliantly controlled a through-ball on his chest before composing himself and swivelling past a defender, before laying it on a plate for Christie:

It was undoubtedly a slick move, and a timely reminder for Rodgers and the Parkhead faithful of the young and impressive players in their ranks.

Do you think this could be a big season for both Allan and Christie?
