And now the side will be looking to make it three in a row without a loss as they gear up for Champions League group stage football as well as a battle to retain the cinch Premiership crown.

The Parkhead boss has already been provided with the opportunity to see what his new signings have in their locker, with Alexandro Bernabei playing both games so far and keeper Benjamin Siergrist enjoying some game time in the first clash. Jota and Cameron Carter-Vickers both played their first match as a permanent Celtic players on Saturday.

Today’s fixture is actually a particularly significant occasion for Banik Ostrava as the club is marking its 100th anniversary.

Yet it was Celtic who had far too much firepower for the Austrian third tier outfit – even with the majority of Postecoglou’s big players watching on from the stands. Johnny Kenny netted twice, Reo Hatate, Mikey Johnston, Christopher Jullien, James Forrest and sub Rocco Vata all got on the scoresheet for the Hoops.

The first match of Celtic ’s pre-season tour also turned out to be a piece of cake. Celtic blew away Wiener Viktoria, who were coached by their footballing legend Toni Polster – the all-time leading Austrian national scorer.

Postecoglou, who was delighted with what was served up before and during the game, said: “I’m starving, I haven’t had a chance to eat it (the cake) yet. They have all been very kind. You come to these places and you understand it is a thrill for them and they want to host you well, so it has been good

Postecoglou left out all the players who had been away on international duty And that meant multi-million pounds worth of talent helped to swell the Celtic contingent in the small main stand at the SV Bad Erlach sports arena. There was a crowd of around 30 hardy Celtic fans who had made the trip south of Vienna for the opening game of their tour, along with several dozen locals and supporters from visitors Wiener Viktoria. Not bad for a closed-door game

Josip Juranovic, Carl Starfelt, Callum McGregor, Cameron Carter-Vickers, Kyogo Furuhashi, Daizen Maeda, Liel Abada, Matt O’ Riley, Georgios Giakoumakis, Greg Taylor, Anthony Ralston and David Turnbull all took their seats in their black and fluorescent yellow training kits, along with back-up keeper Scott Bain and Jota in amongst the fans.

Joe Hart took the captain’s armband, new signing Bernabei was given his first run out in the Hoops, along with the likes of James McCarthy, Hatate, Forrest and Jullien, who saw a move to German side Schalke collapse last week. The two dugouts were like mini stands of their own on the far ground and Postecoglou was given an ovation from the Celtic support as he walked across to take his seat.
