Brown is delighted after Celtic’s response to Sarajevo goal

The Scottish Premier League side defeated the Bosnia and Herzegovina team in the first qualifying leg of the UEFA Champions League.

Mirko Oremus scored a goal in the 29th minute to give Sarajevo an advantage 1-0 against Celtic in the first qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League.

But the Scottish team responded quickly and scored three goals thanks to Michael Johnston, Odsonne Edouard, and Scott Sinclair.

And for Celtic skipper Scott Brown, the way his team responded was great.

“We didn’t move the ball as well as we should have done in the first 15 to 20 minutes,” he was quoted by Four Four Two.

“Their goal was a little kick up the butt that we probably needed.”

“We went on to dominate possession but the main thing was we got some goals, we got 90 minutes under our belts and we are looking forward to the next leg. It was a good first game,” he added.

Johnston is disappointed after being injured

Celtic winger Mikey Johnston was disappointed to miss Scotland Under 21 national team's victories over San Marino and Croatia, and he hopes he can return to play soon.

“The pitch was tough, it chopped up in places. They made it difficult, they sat behind the ball and played very direct, but overall we showed our qualities and in the final third especially.”

Brown explained: “We went there for a victory and we managed to do that. Getting to the Champions League is our main aim, the manager wants it, the players want it and the fans deserve it.”

“We didn’t have Champions League last year so we need to make sure we have it this year.”
