“I will do my best,” Carl Starfelt fancies netting Cup Final goal for Celtic

Carl Starfelt has expressed his desire to score for Celtic in the Scottish League Cup Final against theRangers and replicate his former teammate’s goal in the League Cup final in back in December 2019, which was the only time these two clubs have ever met in a Cup final.

Celtic’s recent form has been outstanding. They have put away a staggering 16 goals just in the four games that have taken place this month. Furthermore, Celtic are not relying on the talents of one individual, instead, 18 players in the squad have already contributed to the scoring sheet this season. However, it is worth noting that the form of Kyogo has been incredible as well, as he has 22 goals so far this season. With this in mind, it is quickly understood that Starfelt wants to join in on the glory that Celtic squad are currently enjoying in the goalscoring tasks.

Speaking to Football Scotland, Starfelt makes a mention of Christopher Julien’s goal in the 2019/2020 Scottish League Cup Final against theRangers, as he is currently using that as his motivation to replicate his teammate’s actions in this year’s final.

When asked if he will be replicating Julien’s winning goal in the upcoming final, Starfelt responded…

Starfelt went on to discuss Celtic’s current defensive strength. “We like to stop the teams high up the pitch if we can do it which is why you don’t see in some games too many clearances inside the box or too many dangerous situations because we are on the front foot and really defending in their half of the pitch.”

“Defensively it is the foundation of our game to work really hard and everyone works hard defensively so we can win the ball high up the pitch.”


Don’t forget there’s some Friday Night Football under the lights this coming Friday when Fran Alonso’s title challenging Celtic side take on theRangers at the Excelsior Stadium in Airdrie with the match only open to Celtic supporters.  Celtic are a point ahead of theRangers at the moment and three behind Glasgow City who we play a week on Sunday, also over at Airdrie.  A win against theRangers takes Celtic to the top of the league and a win the following Sunday will really put Celtic in the driving seat for our first ever SWPL1 Title.
