Celtic ‘B’ are playing tonight in a ‘home’ fixture against Berwick Rangers in Airdrie – and after a positive start, they have gone 2-0 up against the side from England.
Berwick, who hail from Northumberland, were in Scottish League One not so long ago, but have endured a catastrophic drop to the Lowland League in rapid proceedings.
It may not be a testament to Celtic B, however, with the young Colts 2-0 up against their opponents with a great strike from Rocco Vata.
Rocco, son of ex-Celtic player Rudi, has only just turned 15 – yet is scoring against grown men who have plied their trade in the professional leagues.
It’s a great strike from the Irish youth international, with a great assist from Owen Moffat proceeding it.

Hopefully he can follow in his fathers’ footsteps and contribute to the first-team in a couple of years time.
