Match Report


Clydebank faced a tough challenge in their friendly match against Celtic at New Kilbowie Park last night. The gulf in class was evident throughout the game, with Celtic dominating possession and creating numerous scoring opportunities.

Celtic's wingers were particularly impressive, with McBride enjoying an outstanding performance. He not only scored a goal himself in the 32nd minute but also set up another.

McBride's goal came after a long clearance from Fallon. He outran the Clydebank defence with his pace and unleashed a powerful shot from 18 yards that found the far corner of the net.

McMahon added a second goal for Celtic shortly after, converting a McBride cross from close range.

Celtic made four substitutions in the second half, bringing on young players who added a third goal through Cattenach.

The attendance for the match was 4,500.
