CELTIC B were in action this afternoon, taking on The Rangers B in the Glasgow Cup Semi-Final. After leading in the match twice, the young hoops were held to a draw and were taken to penalties.
After a tightly contested shootout, Ben Wylie’s miss meant that the Ibrox side would progress to the competition’s final.
It was a step up in performance from the sides met last time. Jullien and Johnston started the match, with household names for the B side included in the lineup.
Mikey Johnston opened the scoring just after the ten-minute mark. Johnny Kenny headed on Karamoko’s cross, and the Celtic winger was there to tap it into the back of the net from a couple of yards out.
After conceding in the middle of the first half, the Hoops went in at the break level.
After a beautiful piece of skill from Dembele, he drove forward, leaving the opposition dazed. He worked his way into the box and slid the ball to Ben Summers, who made no mistake and slotted it into the back of the net. The Hoops had regained their lead.
The Rangers B side then replied with a goal with the referee blowing his whistle for full-time with the score level at 2-2.
Summers, Johnston, Brooks, and Vata scored their penalties, but Ben Wylie’s spot-kick saved the Ibrox goalie.
The Rangers commentator Tom Miller took a passive aggressive swipe at Celtic’s Rocco Vata over the country he has chosen to represent. The son of Rudi has the option to play for Albania, Scotland and Ireland, with the player opting to play for the latter. ‘Guess what one he’s picked’ were the Rangers TV man’s words.
