Celtic had a good chance early on but Chloe Craig’s effort was well saved by Aberdeen’s keeper Becky Flaherty.

The visitors kept on pressing and came close through Natalie Ross’ effort, but it was deflected just wide.

An Aberdeen header nearly gave the home team the lead, but the scores were level at half-time.

Just before the hour mark, Celtic took the lead when Christie Murray turned on the spot and picked out the back of the net.

Both sides had chances late on in the half, but Celtic held on to secure a vital away win.
