Tony Watt has joked he’s turning into a “training ground international” after scoring a sublime volley in training this afternoon.
The former Celtic striker, who scored the winning goal during the club’s historic victory against Barcelona in 2012, is currently playing in Belgium’s second-tier for OH Leuven.
And while Watt scored just once during his brief loan-spell with Hearts last season, it appears he hasn’t lost his shooting boots since leaving Celtic Park.
In footage he uploaded to both his Twitter and Instagram accounts, Watt can be seen picking the ball up in midfield, before blasting a dipping volley past an unsuspecting goalkeeper:

Watt was expected to push on with his Celtic career after scoring his 83rd minute winner against Barca six years ago, however, he struggled to make a lasting impact on Neil Lennon’s title-winning squad and was eventually sold to Charlton.
Goals like the one above show exactly why Leo Messi, Javier Mascherano and Andres Iniesta were all quaking in their boots though!
