Dessers Scores 15th League Goal As Celtic Beat Rangers To Edge Closer To League Title

Dessers Scores 15th League Goal As Celtic Beat Rangers To Edge Closer To League Title

Cyriel Dessers was in target for Rangers but it was not enough as they fell to a 2-1 defeat to rivals Celtic at Celtic Park in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday.

It was Dessers’ 15th goal in 33 appearances in the Scottish topflight in his debut campaign.

Celtic have one hand on the SPL title after coming out on top in a feisty old firm derby.

Matt O’Riley Celtic in the lead ten minutes before the break, before John Lundstram put the ball into his own net on 38 minutes to make it 2-0.

In the 40th minute Dessers then got on the score sheet to quickly got Rangers back in the game.

But John Lundstram’s day went from bad to worse after receiving a red card in first half stoppage time for a challenge on Alistair Johnston.

Celtic went on to miss a penalty in the second half, but hung on to a win and now hold a six point advantage over Rangers with two games to play.

The two Glasgow giants will meet in the Scottish Cup final later this month.

    Dessers again? This Kolawole is a goal machine. We need to be more patient with him at the national team.

    I believe as a striker you have to know what to do before ball gets to you.

    Help have to keep it simple and easy for himself. I think he overthink it too much and he messed up in the end whenever ball gets to him.

    If he can change that, he will do well in the Super Eagles and at the club level. Dessers is a complete striker and I can’t wait to see him against South Africa in June.

    South Africa will be confused now. If they cage Oshimen, we have Boniface, Dessers and Moffi to name the least.

    The only fear I’m having now is Finidi. Can he beat South Africa with these array of stars players in his disposal at home and away ba? Fingers crossed.

    Keep scoring Dessers. You can do more than this. You will get it right soon at the national team. Ire o. God bless Nigeria!!!
