Glasgow Celtic recorded a memorable 2-1 victory over Red Bull Leipzig and their fans were delighted with the performance of one of their stars on social media after the final whistle.
The famous victory meant Brendan Rodgers’ side kept their hopes of qualifying for the next round of the Europa League alive.
And, things had started well for the Bhoys when Kieran Tierney found the back of the net after just ten minutes of action.
The Bundesliga outfit got themselves back into the game through Jean-Kevin Augustin, however, Celtic responded immediately.
Odsonne Edouard replied with a goal just moments after drawing level and the Hoops managed to hold on for the three points.
Celtic will head to Norway in their next fixture and meet Rosenborg, who currently sit bottom of the group.
Fans were delighted with the result and the performance they saw from their team on social media, with fans praising the performance of one man in particular.
Filip Benkovic has quickly become a favourite with supporters at Parkhead and his display did not go unnoticed once again.
The defender, who is currently on loan from Leicester City, was solid at the back and fans lauded his performance on Twitter.
Many all shared the opinion that they wanted the club to sign him on a permanent deal, whilst some were resigned to the fact that he will not be their player next season.
Here are some of their reactions:
Some night, a hard game, a good team we played tonight. Benkovic & Boyata solid at the back, Christie gives ye everything, KT a gem with McGregor, a brilliant result man.

Kieran Tierney is world class. Absolutely gutted that Benkovic isn’t our player outright, have to enjoy him while he’s here. Imposing, calm and reads the game so well.

We will not be stopped 🍀🍀🍀

Just home after a cracking night of football. Brilliant Celtic !!
Boyata and Benkovic are solid . We haven’t had a settle pairing in a long time. Hopefully, strike deals with them. McGregor outstanding.

Great result tonight not a failure in the team and Tierney, Christie, Forrest, and Eddie outstanding.
Also Boyata and Benkovic the CB pairing we’ve dreamed of
