Celtic fans have been reacting to footage of young after footage emerged of him for the ’s B team.

The reserves continued their Scottish Lowland campaign last night with a 2-0 win over at the Penny Cars Stadium, with goals from Rocco Vata and Adam Brooks sealing the three points for Tommy McIntyre’s side.

The club posted footage of the game’s opener from Vata on their social media page, in which the Irishman fired in off the crossbar, but it wasn’t the goal that got most people talking, as they were more concerned with the pass that 19-year-old Moffat played to give him the opportunity.

It certainly left a number of the supporters impressed when they saw it and they couldn’t contain their excitement as they took to social media, with some hinting that there might be big things to come for him down the line:

“The ball from Moffat’s ridiculously good”

“Moffat looks the real deal”
“Moffat is a baller and Bosun Lawal WILL be a top player in years to come!”
“What a ball from Moffat, great finish as well”
“Pass from Moffat reminded me of Scholes. He put check spin on the pass to kick it up right in the striker’s path. Topspin on that pass it skims through to the keeper. Very tidy.”
“Moffat is absolutely deadly. Great finish by Rocco.”
“That Moffat is one to watch! He keeps this form up surely he’s in the running for first-team football next season, so far I’m very impressed”

Let’s see if Ange Postecoglou is paying as much attention to him as these supporters are, and hopefully a place in the first team might not be too far away.
