Half time update: SC Wiener Viktoria 0-6 Celtic

Six Celtic goals without reply in the first 45 minutes against Austrian minnows SC Wiener Viktoria, in a match many of you will be watching on Celtic TV.

Two goals from Johnny Kenny, Chris Jullien nicked one off his head to deny the Irishman a first half hat-trick and Hatate, Johnston and Forrest all got in on the act as Celtic pressed with intensity and purpose and gave the home side no opportunity to get any sort of a foothold in a one sided affair. Indeed their only opportunity came when an opportunistic re-start just before the interval almost caught Joe Hart out but the effort was just off target, the boy would have dined out on that one for years had it gone in.

Kenny was impressive and looks like a player with a real eye for a goal. The two Japanese stars both looked lively as did Mikey Johnston.

How many will Celtic score in the second half? Double figures surely…

Half time substitutions as follows:

ON: Siegrist, Ajeti, Anderson, Summers, Vata.
OFF: Hart, Kenny, Bernabei, Hatate, Forrest.
