Celtic defender Gustaf Lagerbielke scored his first goal for Sweden in their 3-1 win over Moldova.

The 23-year-old nodded home from a corner just before half time in what was only his second cap for his country.

And Lagerbielke spoke after the match about his goal being a "dream come true". He told Swedish outlet Fotbollskanalen: “It’s a childhood dream to play here at Friends for the national team and then scoring a goal is a bonus. I’m very happy right now.

“I have scored a few goals in training and then there have been no goal gestures [he performed a ‘V’ celebration after scoring].

"When you get the chance, you have to try to take it. I think I made a good effort. It’s up to Janne [Andersson] and Peter [Wettergren]. I load up as if I’m going to play.”

The centre-back has had an up-and-down start to his Celtic career after keeping a clean sheet in the Parkhead side's 1-0 win at Ibrox, he was sent off in the Champions League against Feyenoord last month.

Meanwhile, Celtic starlet Jacob Donnelly has signed a pre-contract with the Scottish champions ahead of penning a professional deal.

The player has featured for the Hoops U18s and also been capped at youth level for Scotland.

His pre-contract agreement means the midfielder will pen a three-year deal at Parkhead next summer.

Donnelly is highly-rated and Celtic have seen off competition from several clubs down south to get his signature.
