Carlton Cole’s bizarre debut ‘goal’

Former Hammer Carlton Cole hasn’t lost his touch in front of goal. Cole scored a scrappy and slight bizarre goal for Celtic on his debut as a substitute even though record books will record it as an own goal after he fell over trying to score and the ball trickled over the line.

“It would be hard to stop Carlton from claiming that goal,” claimed Calum McGregor, “The boys were all delighted for Carlton because he’s a lovely big guy.Even without playing, he’s been a massive help to the boys in his short spell here.

The ball came off the boot of Inverness defender Danny Devine last after Cole fell on his backside trying to turn it in from eight yards. Embarrassment, as much as pain, forced his teammates to haul the striker back to his feet nursing a seriously bruised ego.
