The 18-year-old, who scored what proved to be the winner in the memorable victory over Barcelona last week, has agreed a contract which ties him to Parkhead until at least the end of the 2015/16 season.

The young striker has become a regular feature in Neil Lennon's first team since marking his senior debut with two goals in a 3-0 win over Motherwell in April.

Watt has found the target six times in his 14 appearances in all competitions this season, and he had no hesitation in extending his stay with the club.

"I'm delighted to have signed this new contract," he said. "I'm a Celtic fan and this is where I want to play my football.

"The last couple of weeks have been incredible, and to sign the contract just a week after scoring against Barcelona is brilliant.

"I know I've still got a lot of hard work ahead of me in my career, but it's great to know that I'll be here as part of this exciting young team the manager is building at Celtic."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
