Minute of madness, Liam Scales has a nightmare at Easter Road

Celtic loanee Liam Scales endured a minute of madness as Aberdeen fell to a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Hibs. The 24-year-old started for Jim Goodwin’s side at the back but was booked twice in the space of a minute as Hibs fought back and picked up all three points.

Aberdeen were 1-0 when the Irishman picked up a two bookings and conceded a penalty, allowing Martin Boyle the opportunity to draw the teams level. Scales’ decision-making leaves a lot to be desired as he clatters his way into the defender.

Scales was signed from Shamrock Rovers last summer and it was a deal that left many scratching their heads as it could only mean that he was coming in as defensive cover at centre-half. However, a deal was done to sign Cameron Carter-Vickers with it appearing that the Irishman would deputise to Greg Taylor on Celtic’s left side.

Goodwin has already stated that he would like to make the deal for Scales permanent but that the Scottish Champions were unwilling to agree a deal to make the move to Pittodrie anything other than a loan deal.

  1. I am a Celtic man and sincerely hope we hang on to Liam Scales. But I really can’t see anything to side with Jim Goodwin here. Both yellows for Scales were dead cert yellows, in fact, the first would have earned him a straight red had he been wearing a Celtic top today!
