Video: Carlton Cole Forward Roll Goal

Carlton Cole was well past his best when he arrived at Celtic Park under Ronny Deila. He was one of a number of fairly big names to come to the club in the twilight of their careers during that period. His only memorable moment was scoring for the Hoops at Inverness in bizarre fashion, and that goal came on this day in 2015.

Celtic beat the highland side 3-1, the other goals coming from McGregor and Griffiths. The latter smashed a shot in the second half, which rebounded to Cole and he less than elegantly fell, performed a forward roll and saw the ball deflect into the back of the net.

It was a comical moment.
