Tiarnan Rafferty (33)



The sides traded chances during the opening exchanges before Declan Monaghan came closest to breaking the deadlock on 20 minutes when he turned an effort onto the crossbar.

Not long afer that, at the other end, Curtis Hassan also hit the woodwork but Tiarnan Rafferty was on hand to tuck home the loose ball at close range.

Celtic might have levelled ten minutes into the second half through Valentin Feher but his free-kick was well saved by Marcin Farniok.

Moyola had an opportunity to double their advantage moments later when Hassan delivered a set piece into the box only for Steven McQuillan to nod just wide.

And they came even closer in the dying moments through Kyle Beggs when he ended a long run into the box by firing the ball against an upright.
