Celtic defender included in SPFL Team of the Week after Ibrox showing

Liam Scales probably thought his chances of making it at Celtic were slim as he left Aberdeen at the end of last summer. Ange Postecoglou was presiding over a Treble and appeared to prefer others in the squad to him.

In a flash, Scales went from being an Aberdeen transfer certainty to being the Man of the Match during a 1-0 win at Ibrox. Injuries to Maik Nawrocki, Cameron Carter-Vickers, Stephen Welsh and Nat Phillips allowed the Irishman to stake a claim and prove he’s good enough to be at the club. Saturday was that.

Now, the defender has been named in the SPFL Team of the Week after his showing against Rangers.

The only Celt to be selected, Scales will want to make sure that he continues to impress the manager and holds down the position until defensive reinforcements return.

There is even a suggestion that Scales could provide cover at left back going forward. This is certainly something the manager may consider, given that he wanted to strengthen that position. Scales showed on Sunday that he can stand up to challenges and show composure in the face of pressure. Something that we will need in Europe.


Well done to him.
