Video: Celtic loanee scores screamer against Rangers

Celtic loanee Liam Scales has scored a stunning goal for Aberdeen against Rangers. The Irish central defender is on loan at Pittodrie this season and has claimed a fine goal for Barry Robson’s side. After beating Alfredo Morelos to a loose ball on the left hand side, Scales looked up and sent a looping effort into the back of the net.

Allan McGregor was helpless to the dipping effort, which was probably a cross, but Scales wheeled away in celebration.

Scales was signed from Shamrock Rovers in the summer of 2021 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.

Aberdeen have already stated that they would have liked to make the deal for Scales a permanent one but that the Scottish Champions were unwilling to agree a deal to make the move to Pittodrie anything other than a loan deal.
