Celtic starlet PJ Crossan has stated that he enjoyed beating his former employers Dunfermline Atheltic 1-0 in a Scottish Development League fixture on Tuesday night.

The striker, who is a product of Dunfermline Atheltic’s youth system, was snapped up by the Hoops on a three-year deal in the summer.

Although Crossan is yet to make his first team debut for Celtic, the 17-year-old has regularly turned out for the Bhoys’ development squad this season.

And the starlet, whose side beat Dunfermline Atheltic 1-0 at East End Park, courtesy of Josh Kerr’s second half header, explained that he relished beating his ex-employers at his former stomping ground.

“It was good”, Crossan told Celtic TV, when asked how it felt to beat his former club.


“The last four years I have been here so it was good to come back and beat them.

“It was good, I enjoyed it.”

Crossan, who is a Scotland Under-17 international, made his first team debut for Dunfermline Atheltic towards the end of last season as the Pars managed to earn promotion to the Scottish Championship.

The forward clocked up 28 minutes over two Scottish League One matches, managing one assist.
