Celtic see off Dons with late pen

Celtic saw off promoted Aberdeen 4-2, as Charlie Wellings and Chloe Craig both scored twice. However, the Dons did level when a Jenna Penman cross forced an own-goal and Eilidh Shore got their second, with Craig’s late penalty needed to make sure of the points for Celtic.
