Young midfielder Michael Johnston has aired his delight on Twitter after agreeing a new deal with Celtic on the same day as marking his debut for the club.

The 18-year-old left-winger was handed his first appearance for the Scottish giants by manager Brendan Rodgers on Saturday afternoon as he started in the 4-1 victory over St. Johnstone.

He ended up playing 57 minutes of the encounter and even managed to bag himself an assist in the dominant victory.

The club later announced that Johnston had signed a new three-year contract at the club on the same day as his senior debut.

The young up and coming star then took to his own personal Twitter account to explain his delight at making his debut as well as signing a deal at the club and he told how dream had come true.

Johnston is highly thought of in the Celtic youth ranks and just last week was he linked with Premier League giants Chelsea.

However, it now looks as though his immediate future lies in Glasgow and fans will be eager to see the progress the young attacker makes at the club.
