Why Would Anybody Ever Do This?

Wednesday’s Scottish Premiership match between second-place Aberdeen and third-place Rangers quickly descended into stereotypes about Scottish football after Aberdeen’s Greg Tansey just clattered Rangers midfielder Jason Holt in the box.

Tansey unloaded his flailing, spinning whiff with only seven minutes gone and was then shamefully (or mercifully) hooked in the 43rd minute. With the mighty Bhoys of Celtic dropping points against Motherwell, this could’ve been an excellent opportunity for Aberdeen to put some pressure on the pacesetters. Instead, this happened.

Watch Claire Emslie’s Accurate Strike In Scotland’s 5-0 Win

In UEFA Women’s World Cup qualifying there are a lot of routs. Half of the 10 matches played Tuesday involved scorelines of 3-0 or worse (most were worse, much worse), including Germany’s 11-0 thrashing of Faroe Islands. Scotland’s match against Albania was no different but for one feature: none of those other lopsided affairs had a goal this pretty.

Scottish Premiership Keeper Appears To Mentally Fall Into A Black Hole

30-year-old Ross County goalkeeper Scott Fox committed one of the strangest howlers you’ll see all season during his side’s defeat to Rangers in the Scottish Premiership over the weekend.

Celtic’s Kieran Tierney Unleashes A Thunderbolt In The Scottish League Cup

Kieran Tierney has done everything for Celtic. The 20-year-old signed with his boyhood club as an adolescent and worked his way up through the youth development program. During that time, he served as a ballboy at Celtic Park, in Glasgow’s East End.

Over the past three-plus seasons, Tierney has forced his way into the Hoops’ starting XI at left back. And now, he’s added to his growing legend with a performance for the ages during Celtic’s League Cup knockout fixture against Kilmarnock.
