CELTIC B clinched the Glasgow CUP at Ibrox on Wednesday night after a pulsating and stressful tie on enemy territory.
Celtic took a THREE goal lead in the first half, but would be pegged back to 3-3 by the end of the 90 minutes, and were lucky not to concede a fourth. The brace from Brooks and goal from Vata were cancelled out, but it was enough to take it to penalties.
The Glasgow Cup final goes straight to penalty kicks and with that, the bhoys went about winning from the spot. That was also not without its stresses!
There were misses from both sides, going to sudden death with the original five takers well out of sight. The hero on the night was the Celtic goalkeeper Josh Clarke who made FOUR penalty saves to save some of his teammates blushes from the spot.
It was a game of two halves for sure. The bhoys were incredible in the first 45 minutes and could have been out of sight. A lapse in judgement allowed The Rangers to grab a goal back from the spot just before half time.
In the second half, the home side dominated with Celtic struggling to keep up. They were pegged back early in the second have to 3-2 and the third goal for the Ibrox side came with two minutes of normal time remaining.
It was young Corey Thomson who played in the 6-5 game at Hampden last week who scored the winning penalty for the bhoys.
Another win for Celtic in a cup final against The Rangers. Not bad at all! The bhoys emulating the first team and the Ibrox club well emulating the first team too!
