The Celtic FC Official Twitter Admin have wasted no time in getting a dig in on Rangers after their 3-1 defeat at Ibrox against Aberdeen. The Dons, managed by former Celtic midfielder Barry Robson, were worthy winners on a potentially crucial day in the title race in Scotland.
As Rangers fans headed to Ibrox for the game, they will have heard that Celtic were sitting at 0-0. Luis Palma thought he’d won the game after a fizzing cross found its way goal wards. Then, Blair Spittal thought he had secured a point for Stuart Kettlewell’s team with a tidy finish. The Rangers fans would have been relishing the chance to then put pressure on Celtic by picking up a win.
Whilst many teams might have let their heads drop after this, Celtic did not. Brendan Rodgers’ team had a minute of magic left with Greg Taylor picking out O’Riley as he entered the box. The Great Dane finished well, high into the net, to secure the win. Then, Michael Beale’s team were beaten and St Mirren drew away to Killie.
