Video: Celtic winger Mikey Johnston scores bizarre goal for Ireland

Celtic winger Mikey Johnston scored Ireland’s second goal in this evening’s game against Gibraltar. Stephen Kenny’s team are in Faro, Portugal to face the minnows in a UEFA European Qualifier. Ireland took the lead through Brighton forward Evan Ferguson before Johnston made it 2-0.

In what was quite a bizarre goal, Johnston actually took the goal quite well considering that it ricocheted off the post and back at him. The winger showed great movement to run across the defender and get himself on the end of a Matt Doherty cross before his shot came back off the woodwork.

Johnston was handed a competitive start this evening, something that he has not been able to get under Brendan Rodgers since the Irishman returned to the club. MJ will be hoping that he will be able to push through under Rodgers if he can get up and running.

  1. Mikey needs to move on. There’s no chance of him having a career in Paradise! He doesn’t have what it takes. He has lots of skill, but no heart, no dig, no staying power and is injury prone.
    He’s another one of those kids who came through the ranks who had ability in bucketloads and made the big mistake of thinking he’d made it when he signed for Celtic.
    He needed to think that when he signed instead of realizing he had the OPPORTUNITY to make it!
    Just another wasted talent.
    He should take a lesson fron young Ben Doak!

    • Joe i would talk about your own team mikey has the quickest feet in scottish football and your comment sounds as if you are bitter cause of his irish connection you are not a Celtic F.C 1888 supporter maybe a sevco I pity you for having this hatred what a lonely life you must lead only sharing your hatred undercover

  2. What JACK said X2 , actually burst out laughing when i read the no heart comment , no player gets to play at that level and get international recognition with no heart , i think “JOE ” has no idea what it takes to be a pro , Hail hail .
