Teen brace joy for Ledley
Joe Ledley has hailed the emergence of youngster Tony Watt after he grabbed a brace in Celtic's 3-0 win at Motherwell on Sunday.
The Wales international played a key role in helping the teenager score two goals in the space of six minutes in the second half after stepping off the bench on the hour mark at Fir Park.
And Ledley was delighted at seeing another Academy youngster forcing his way into boss Neil Lennon's plans in the remaining matches now the Scottish Premier League title is in the bag.
Ledley said on the club's website: "It's great at this stage of the season to see the young players come through and get their chance.
"There's a lot like him in the youth side. We've got a really good set-up here with a few players ready to come in and play their part.
"It was fantastic for Tony and what a great debut for him. All the players and coaching staff are really pleased for him. He's a goalscorer, that's what he does. He's trained with us a few times and had done well so he deserves his opportunity.
"You hope Tony can go on and show the same willingness to learn and hopefully try to develop. He's a grounded guy so I don't see any reason why he won't.
"They were tough goals to score. He's a good finisher and he should be pleased with what he's done."
