Highlights and Unique Angle – Celtic FC Women 3-0 Aberdeen

Celtic TV’s second Unique Angle of the day and this time it’s the three Celtic goals from Fran
Alonso’s Celtic FC Women side’s 3-0 SWPL1 victory over Aberdeen at the Excelsior Stadium in Airdrie yesterday afternoon. And we also feature the match highlights from Celtic’s latest win as The Ghirls eye up a real title challenge.

Chloe Craig heads Celtic into the lead

Yesterday’s win, coupled with wins for leaders Glasgow City and third placed theRangers means that Celtic remain three points behind City at the top of the SWPL and a point ahead of the current SWPL1 Champions.

Here’s the Unique Ange…

Celtic had to wait until injury time of the first half to break the deadlock in what was an uncharacteristically lacklustre first half performance from this Celtic team. However just seconds before the half-time whistle a Maria McAneny corner was met by that Celtic warrior Chloe Craig and her powerful header was simply unstoppable.

It was a Jacynta corner on 56 minutes that was headed towards the Aberdeen goal by Irish international central defender Claire O’Riordan. Annalisa McCann in the Aberdeen goal tried her best to prevent Celtic doubling their lead but the power beat her and the ball via another deflection ended in the back of the Aberdeen net.

Teenager Clare Goldie, making her full debut for the Celtic first team looked the part throughout her time on the park and set up veteran Natalie Ross – outstanding again for the Hoops – to conclude the scoring and match the result when the two teams met last September.

Revenge will be on this Celtic team’s mind in midweek when they travel to Edinburgh to take on their League Cup conquerors Spartans, with three points essential for the title push.
