Dundalk 1-3 Celtic


I’ve only got some patchy details in from today’s friendly at Dundalk which Celtic’s reserve side won 3-1in front of 4,000 supporters.

Ben Hutchison, Michael McGlinchey and Nicky Riley were the unlikely scorers at Oriel Park.

Hutchison, who appeared as a late substitute in the 7-0 win over St Mirren the previous day, opened the scoring for Celtic midway through the first half but the home side equalised before the break.

Michael McGlinchey, who was linked with a move to Dundalk, scored the second for Celtic with Nicky Riley marking his first appearance of the season with a goal.

Massimo Donati who fell victim to an ‘over-enthusiastic’ challenge on the hour mark but the injury isn’t thought to be too serious.

CELTIC Fox, Doumbe, Marr, Misun, Lafferty; McGinn, Donati, Miller, Conroy; Hutchison, McGlinchey. Subs Riley (Hutchison) Cawley (Donati)
