The path of the Argentine Alessandro Bernabei inside Scottish Celtic went to the track. Because when he was transferred from Lanús for 3.5 million dollars last June, at the age of just 21, it took him a while to adjust and was even stopped by the Police in a confused episode while he was driving his car for streets of Glasgow. But this Sunday, the defender – who was already the first Albiceleste to play for the club – scored his first goal to seal the victory against Ross County 2-0, which left them one step away from the Premier League title.
The 22-year-old left-back started the match as a substitute, came on 20 minutes into the second half and in injury time (95) nailed from mid-range to seal the away win.
Bernabei arrived at Celtic in the middle of last year in exchange for three and a half million dollars for 90% of the pass and became the first Argentine to wear that shirt in the 135-year history of the Glasgow club.
Almost a year later, the Santa Fe man who came out of the lower leagues of the “Granate” (where he played 88 games and scored 5 goals) managed to score his first goal after 16 official games.
“Argentina Argentina”he applauded the Celtic fans who traveled to the Ross County stadium, while his own team-mates congratulated him for allowing them to take a vital step towards the title.
Is that they now have a nine-point lead over their arch-rivals Rangers, with three dates remaining and next fixture both will meet at the Celtic ground. Great game.
