Fresh from a convincing 3-0 win in their opening qualifying leg for the Champions League, Brendan Rodgers' Celtic were back on the friendly circuit this afternoon.

Welcoming Belgium's Standard Liege to Celtic Park, the double-treble winners were in fine form once again.

Going in at the half-way mark three goals ahead, it was Odsonne Edouard who got the home team off to a flying start.

Along with Olivier Ntcham, Edouard had been involved in a car crash earlier in the week. Thankfully coming out of the incident unscathed, Edouard's finish was a delightful treat for the home fans.

Next up was Moussa Dembele. One of the outstanding talents at Celtic, the Frenchman pounced on some naive defending, before beautifully chipping the ball beyond the goalkeeper's reach.


Playing with absolute ease now, Celtic already looked far too much for their Belgian opponents. When Callum McGregor was played in here though, he nevertheless had to finish well.

The second-half picked up where the first ended. Although Celtic were clearly cruising now, the players retained their hunger.


A wonderful bit of interplay between Scott Sinclair and Michael Johnston brought Celtic their fourth of the afternoon.

That would be it for the home side however.

As things winded down and a return game against the Armenian's Alashkert comes into view, the work had been done.


In the end, it would be the Belgians who grabbed the last goal of the day;
Duje Cop grabbing a consolation goal for the visitors in the 72nd minute.
