Tony Watt scored a double on his first Celtic start as Neil Lennon's injury-hit side swept to a 4-2 victory at Inverness.

The 18-year-old produced a brilliant piece of skill, a good turn of pace and a composed finish in the 24th minute to add to Victor Wanyama's early headed opener. Charlie Mulgrew fired Celtic three ahead just after the break and Watt was on hand to make it 4-0 in the 64th minute. However, Ross Draper scored two consolations.

The win came despite Celtic being forced into six changes following their Champions League win over Helsingborg on Tuesday. Thomas Rogne, Scott Brown, Georgios Samaras, Kris Commons, Beram Kayal and Joe Ledley all dropped out through injury, but Wanyama returned with Filip Twardzik alongside him in central midfield.
