He squeezed past goalkeeper Benjamin Siegrist, who had a moment to forget after letting the shot from a tight angle dribble under him.

“I think he is a good player. He is quick, has great feet, he’s direct. He has great awareness. He has everything, really. Will he get to that top, top level? I think he has got a chance. He hasn’t really trained with us much as he has been with Wales. But when he does, you can see his quality.”

The Scottish side sit second after the win, climbing above Ange Postecoglou's Celtic.
