Debut boys edges Celtic to three points

Morten Rasmussen scored his first Celtic goal in the 1-0 win over Hamilton at New Douglas Park to close the gap over Rangers to seven points.

Celtic boss Tony Mowbray was pleased with the close-range debut goal from Rasmussen.

"We knew chances would come and thankfully the new boy turned and stuck one in the bottom corner,'' Mowbray said. "He's probably not as dynamic or as clever with the ball as some of our other strikers, but he plays in the box and scores scruffy goals like that.''

Mowbray also insisted Australian frontman Scott McDonald has a future at Celtic, despite Rasmussen's arrival.

"Yes of course. Most top teams have four strikers,'' said the former West Brom boss.
