Half-Time Report: Early Jason Denayer goal gives Celtic lead

Jason Denayer scores early to give Celtic a 1-0 lead over Aberdeen at half time in their Scottish Premiership match.

An early goal from Celtic has given them a 1-0 lead over Aberdeen at half time in their Scottish Premiership match this afternoon.

The hosts needed just six minutes to break the deadlock after a Kris Commons effort was deflected behind for a corner, allowing Efe Ambrose to set up Jason Denayer for a tap-in from close range.

Aberdeen had a corner of their own a couple of minutes later, but the delivery was comfortably taken by Craig Gordon to keep Celtic ahead.

Stefan Scepovic thought that he had marked his Celtic debut with a goal inside the opening 15 minutes when he slotted the ball in from a Virgil van Dijk delivery, but the finish was ruled out for offside.

Commons tried to double the hosts' advantage with a shot from the edge of the box but saw his finish saveed, before blasting the ball over the bar later in the half.

Nicky Low tried to pull one back for Aberdeen, but blasted the ball high, while Emilio Izaguirre cleared off the line as the visitors tried to equalise from a corner just before the break.
