Caltex Socceroos duo Tom Rogic and Jamie Maclaren both found the target overnight as their respective sides recorded wins in the Scottish Premiership.
Rogic, fresh from Australia’s recent friendlies with Norway and Colombia, netted Celtic’s final goal as they secured a 3-0 win at home to Ross County.
The playmaker turned his man on the edge of the box before calmly slotting a neat right-footed strike into the bottom left-hand corner.
The strike was Rogic’s fourth goal of the season and helped Celtic extend their lead atop the Scottish Premiership to 12 points.
Elsewhere, Maclaren netted the opener as Hibernian secured a hard-fought 2-0 win at home to Partick Thistle.
The Aussie striker pounced on a brilliant cross from Martin Boyle to give his side a 1-0 lead with just under 20 minutes remaining.
It was Maclaren’s third goal in eight league matches for Hibernian.
In Portugal, Awer Mabil also found the net as Pacos De Ferreira secured a 2-0 win at home to Chaves.
After setting up his side’s opener inside 30 minutes, Mabil scored the second less than 10 minutes into the second half with a close-range strike from a corner.
It was just Mabil’s second strike of the season in 21 appearances.
