Easton is a decent player but has obviously erred in some way as he's been relegated to the development squad, despite the fact he'll be 22 before the season is out. Didn't even make the bench in any of the senior team's pre-season friendlies.

Dundee had the vast majority of possession against United last night - they played very well and should have been several goals ahead before Justin Johnson of United got sent off for a second yellow - for diving.

Ironically United played much better with ten men - had a five minute spell when they knocked the ball around nicely and a cracking pass from Scott Lochead played a big part in their equaliser, prodded home fromm close range by Aaron Duke.

After that they left Duke up top on his own and pretty much went eight across the edge of the penalty area - they battled really hard to grab a point, bit lucky at times (stonewall penalty not given when Sam Dryden was taken out near waist high with ten minutes or so to go) but worked hard and threw themselves in front of everything.

Decent game to watch and good to see Dundee always try to pass the ball.

Celtic are involved in the Premier League International Cup at development level again this season, they have been drawn against Benfica, Liverpool and Chelsea with all games being played in England.

How will that work if you reach CL (and thus UEFA Youth League) too?

We look like a properly good side going forward. Some lovely passing and movement and two wingers with pace and skill who look capable of making the step up, even if it's just as impact subs.

They'll never make it at Saints - too exciting :(

St Johnstone's #10, Dylan Easton, looks very talented with the ball at his feet.

He is. Been suggested by some there is a bit of an attitude problem there. Think it's his last season as an u-20 though, so he'll have to start pushing for the first team.
