Commons gives Celtic winning start

Published Add your comment

Kris Commons' 79th-minute winner gave below-par Celtic an opening 1-0 win over Aberdeen at Parkheadto start the defence of their Clydesdale Bank Premier League title against Aberdeen at Parkhead.

However, the home fans have the Dons' calamity keeper Jamie Langfield to thank for the three points. The Pittodrie side looked comfortable enough as the champions struggled until Langfield made an horrendous mess of Commons' shot from distance at his near post after the Hoops midfielder had played a short corner with Joe Ledley.

Langfield, nicknamed Clangers, will not want to see his aberration again but Celtic will certainly have to do better in Finland on Wednesday night if Aberdeen are to build on their 2-1 first-leg lead against HJK Helsinki in their Champions League third qualifying round tie.
