Video: Highlights from Celtic’s Dramatic SWPL win over Hibs

Celtic eventually got the better of Hibs in the SWPL on Sunday with a 2-1 win – and all three goals are pretty spectacular. It was goalless at the interval with Fran Alonso’s side doing most of the pressing. Into the second half the breakthrough came from a long range strike from Sarah Harkes – her husband scored AGAINST Celtic for Dundee United later in the day. A defensive mistake from Jodie Bartle allowed Hibs to gain possession in the final third but it was some strike to level the scores, much to the frustration of Fran Alonso on the touchline.

The 90 minutes came and went and the scores were level at 1-1, them Charlie Welling steps forward ‘doin’ her thing’ and what a winner it was. Enjoy! Hibs are decent, these three points are significant. COYGIG.

Alonso’s team are back at Penny Cars stadium tomorrow night but as the away team when they take on hosts Motherwell looking for another 3 points. With Ange Postecoglou’s Bhoys not in action until Thursday this is a great chance to get along to the Penny Cars Stadium in Airdrie and roar the Ghirls on…

Here are the highlights from Sunday’s 2-1 win over Hibs. Enjoy!
