Marco Tilio netted a stunning first goal on his return to Melbourne City on loan.

The Celtic winger headed back to Australia in January after struggling to make an impact in the first team in Glasgow.

Tilio played just twice for Celtic in the league after his move in the summer and was allowed to return Down Under for game time.

And the attacker has already played three times for Melbourne City - the club he left to join Celtic last year.

Tilio kick-started his return in his third outing, against Sydney FC, as he fired home a classy finish to claim a point for his side in a 1-1 draw.

Goalkeeper Jamie Young launched a long ball up the park where Tilio controlled expertly, drove past defenders and curled into the far corner of the net.

City boss Aurelio Vidmar said: “It’s a great goal. Marco’s first touch sets it all up. Incredible. He hasn’t played for six months give or take. He just needs match rhythm.

"He got 70 minutes last week and we thought at the beginning of the game he would get another 70 minutes, but he looked like he was still going and making runs.

"Sometimes when you have not played for five or six months it takes you five or six games to find a rhythm."
