Daniel Arzani has made his first appearance for Celtic, playing for the club’s reserve team against Hamilton overnight.
The 19-year-old is at the start of a two-year loan deal with Celtic from Premier League champions Manchester City.
But his first appearance for the Hoops has ended in defeat, with Arzani playing for just over an hour as they lost 3-0 at the Hope Stadium.
ANALYSIS: How will Arzani be used at Celtic?
The Caltex Socceroos winger showed glimpses of his quality and twice went close to finding the net in the first half.
His best moment came on 20 minutes as he created some space for himself on the left and fired off a fizzing low shot across goal which slipped past the far post.
While Arzani had some eye-catching moments, the plastic pitch at Hamilton’s home ground affected his ability to dribble and run at his marker.
Arzani was replaced on 62 minutes with Celtic trailing 2-0, with Reegan Mimnaugh’s late goal completing the rout for the home side.
The young Aussie will be hoping he can soon break his way into Brendan Rodgers’ first-team squad, with the Hoops hosting Rangers in the first Old Firm Derby of the season on Sunday (AEST).
