The Franco-Serbian wideman scored a double and notched an assist as the Jambos demolished Celtic and brought an end to the visitors’ 69-game unbeaten run.

And the on-loan Genoa winger has been rewarded with a spot in the team of the week, picked out by world football’s governing body.

Milinkovic has only made it onto the bench, being kept out of the starting line-up by the likes of Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar, and countryman Sergej Milinkovic-Savic of Lazio.
