Football Scores: Celtic 2-1 Aberdeen

Scott Brown was forced off after suffering an injury on his return to Celtic Park in one of the close football scores of the weekend in the Scottish Premiership. Jota opened the scoring for the hosts in the 20th minute before Lewis Ferguson equalized in the 33rd minute. With both teams not creating many chances, it took a fortunate goal by captain Callum Mc Gregor to break the deadlock in the 60th minute.

Managers Reaction

Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou: “I’m really pleased, especially after Thursday night, the players put in a lot physically and emotionally. We were disappointed with the outcome and we knew a couple of days later we would have to pick it up.” he added. “I thought our energy was really good at the start of the game, we really put some pressure on and got the goal. They got the penalty which brought them into the game a little bit but second half we went to another level in terms of our energy and relentlessness to chase balls down.”

Aberdeen manager Stephen Glass: “I’m really disappointed that, despite the amount of quality that Celtic showed, that it’s a deflection that ends up costing us.” he added. “We were difficult to play against and did carry a threat, especially first half. We felt if we could get past their first bit of pressure we had the chance to get at their back players. That disappeared a wee bit in the second half. I wouldn’t say we didn’t show it by choice in the second half, I think we had a lack of the ball, to be fair.”
