Tuohy hails “ruthless” Celtic

Assistant manager Michael Tuohy heaped praise on “relentless” Celtic as they buried seven past Forfar Farmington with no reply, as the Hoops recorded their sixth home victory in a row.

Tuohy watched on as Celtic claimed their third cleansheet in a row, and expressed his happiness at the complete performance from the squad. 

“I’m pleased with the performance today and to get seven goals from a variety of sources is really pleasing. We have now won six-in-a-row at K-Park which is a great run of momentum” he said. 

“The cleansheet is important for the team as a whole but to show the ruthlessness and relentlessness of performance that we did, particularly in the second-half, was pleasing.”

Celtic opened the scoring through Sarah Ewens after only nine minutes and rounded it off with Cheryl McCulloch in the last minute, the Hoops showing their guests no mercy as the season ramps up. The flow of the game also allowed the substitutes to slot in and influence proceedings, and Tuohy hailed the players’ game management.

“When you’re leading, it can go one of two ways and we were very keen to make sure it went in our favour. We kept our standards as we always do and demand from each other and we weren’t fortunate. We were well worth our goals in the second-half. 

“Anyone looking at our squad can see we have great depth in a number of positions and the goalkeeper is just one of them. We’ve got great quality in the backline and throughout the team, so it’s good to know we can keep the consistency of performance and result even if there are tweaks within the team selection or system.”

The assistant manager also touched on Josephine Giard’s positive impact, after she scored a double from the bench.

“She’s made a great impact scoring with her first touch. Josi’s attitude is always first class - of course she’d have been disappointed not to start, but we always knew she’d come on desperate to make an impression, and that was the case with all the subs today, they all made a positive impact,” he told. 

And Tuohy now wants the squad to use the momentum they’re building in this weekend’s showdown, as Celtic now face a Scottish Cup quarter-final tie with Glasgow City this Sunday.

“We wanted to keep our momentum going and we have done that emphatically. We were clinical with the majority of our chances and everyone is buzzing going into that game, and we’re fully set on getting into the next round,” stated.

Celtic play Glasgow City in the quarter-final of the Scottish Cup at K-Park on Sunday 15 September in a 2pm kick-off. Adults £5, concessions £3 and under-16s free - pay at the gate.
