Warrington delighted with run of games and Celtic Park assist


By Colette Carr

After missing out on Celtic’s squad for Glasgow City, Chloe Warrington knuckled down to make sure it wouldn’t happen again, and has been rewarded with three out of three starts since, all culminating in setting up the winner in the Glasgow Derby in a special night at Celtic Park.

The left-back enjoyed spells in the team before lockdown having graduated from the club’s Academy, but since missing out on that first game back, Warrington wasn’t willing to give Alonso any other choice but to play her.

“The competition within the team is massive - there’s girls who weren’t in the squad tonight so you don’t take it for granted. It’s hard and you need to put the work in to get in, and once you’re in you need to prove you deserve to stay. I wasn’t in the squad in the first week and I came in and trained as hard as I possibly could and I’ve managed to secure my spot for now and tonight I think I gave a good performance,” she said at Celtic Park.

And for the 18-year-old who has been with the club since the age of seven, it was a huge night as she turned in a phenomenal defensive and attacking shift at the home of her heroes. 

“I can’t really sum it up into words. This is why we play and we came here wanting to put on a performance the way that we did. We came into the game having been ruled out before we’d even played so we came and showed exactly why we shouldn’t be ruled out just yet,” she told. 

Celtic made it two 1-0 victories over their rivals this season in games in which they’ve been forced into their best defensive showings of the season so far. And for the defender, the application and desire was evident as the Celts remained firmly focused on the task at hand to ensure they walked out of Celtic Park with maximum points. 

“In a game like that you just need to remain focused and work hard as a team and when you go up 1-0 at such a late stage in the game you know the pressure will be on, but we showed that we work on that every week. We showed when you’re a team and you fight you’ll get the win.

“We need to take the chances that we get and tonight we did that. I wouldn’t say we had many clear cut chances but we when got the one through on goal it’s about finishing it and Mariah done really well to do that. It’s not about all the chances, but the ones you take," she admitted.
