Celtic B midfielder Ben Summers has highlighted the 'immense' importance of two of his team-mates so far this season following their recent exposure to first-team football.

Summers played the whole game as the Hoops defeated Civil Service Strollers 2-0 in the Lowland League on Tuesday night thanks to goals from 16-year-old Corey Thomson and Ireland youth international Rocco Vata.

However, the midfielder reserved special praise for two other team-mates afterwards: goalkeeper Tobi Oluwayemi and centre-back Bosun Lawal.

Both were taken on the senior side's pre-season trip to Austria and the Czech Republic, with Lawal in particular clocking up significant game-time.

Summers reckons that stint has served both well - and that they have brought a 'first-class' attitude back to the B team.

"We've got Bosun and Tobi who've been with the first team," Summers told Celtic TV. "They've been involved in pre-season with a few others as well.

"It's important that when they come down [to the B team] that their attitude is first-class and it always is.

"Tobi saved us against Cowdenbeath [in the opening-night 3-1 win] with a big save and tonight he was immense as well. Same with Bosun."

Celtic B have won two, lost one and drawn one of their opening four Lowland League matches and sit sixth in the table.

They next face East Kilbride at the Excelsior Stadium on Friday (7.45pm).
