Socceroos prodigy Daniel Arzani made his dream debut for Celtic this morning – but it ended in a Hallowe'en nightmare when he was stretchered off.
The 19 year old came on just before the hour mark in Celtic's 5-0 win against Dundee and instantly made a huge impression.
He lit up the game with attacks on Dundee's defence, and sent in a perfectly weighted ball for Kieran Tierney who was unlucky not to slot it home.
61' - CLOSE! Wonderful play from Arzani. The young Australian has the ball out wide, spots the run of Tierney towards the far post and zips an excellent pass in for him. Tierney was under pressure but will be annoyed he never found the back of the net.— Celtic Football Club (@CelticFC) October 31, 2018
But his shift ended after just 20 minutes when he slipped awkwardly and twisted his leg.

He fell to the ground in agony clutching his leg and appeared to have damaged either his knee or his ankle.
Physios ordered a stretcher on the pitch to take him back to the sheds, ending his game in the 80th minute, and leaving Celtic with only 10 men for the rest of the game.
There was no immediate update from the club on his condition at the end of the game.
Despite the injury after just 20 minutes, fans hailed his performance and saw huge potential for the youngster at Celtic.
Socceroos teammate Tom Rogic opened the scoring in the game with a stunning strike from just outside the box... and then just casually walked back for the restart afterwards in a low key goal celebration.
