Video: Humble Stephen Welsh reflects on his first Celtic goal by praising teammate

Stephen Welsh was a standout performer as Celtic overcame a late challenge from Motherwell to win the game 2-1. Welsh opened the scoring within two minutes when he got on the end of a David Turnbull corner and fired the ball beyond Luke Kelly in the Motherwell goal.

At the other end, Welsh was solid, putting his body on the line against the formidable Motherwell attack. Welsh was modest in his assessment of his debut goal, instead praising his teammate Turnbull for the quality of the delivery. It shows that the player is humble but also hungry to emulate his teammate and become a mainstay in the Celtic team. The signing of Jonjoe Kenny has allowed Ajer to move back across and be partnered with Welsh, with Duffy and Bitton dropping out. The pair look comfortable together and the youngster will be hoping for more tine with Ajer in the centre of defence as Celtic look to build a run of form.

Odsonne Edouard got the other one but a late Allan Campbell goal threatened to give Celtic another draw but they managed to see their way to the full time whistle with three points gained.
