AS a return to women’s football in Scotland edges closer, Celtic are delighted to have signed Megan Crosson from top NWSL side Houston Dash for the upcoming season.

Crosson arrives in Glasgow bringing options to the table for Fran Alonso with wide-ranging experience along the entire left side of the pitch, but she is hoping to be on the offensive at her new club.

And while already having extensive experience abroad, the 26-year-old Californian admits it’s been extra-special to complete this move across the Atlantic, with her football remaining a priority through the pandemic.

“Luckily my family and myself have our health and we’re in good place, so I'm fortunate to continue my career this year and I'm a little bit extra grateful to make the move to Scotland, so it's definitely still a priority for me to continue my professional career and I'm happy to be here doing it at Celtic.

“I've been following the Scottish league and the Americans that moved here and I'm excited to experience it. I know it's becoming more and more competitive and another thing that attracted me was the way Fran wants the team to play.

“He really knows good football and I think that will be an awesome environment that will suit me positionally, and I'm excited about playing good football, with good coaches and a good group of girls.”

With a pedigree in the American top-flight as well as both Europe and Asia, Crosson links up with the Celts as they prepare for the new-look 2020/21 season, and is hoping to make an impact from the off.

She said: “It feels nice to be on the same page as everyone. It's always nice to start fresh with the team who as a whole is starting from the beginning and hopefully we can build a good squad together. It's always tough to go into teams in midseason, so it will be nice to be with the girls from the get-go.

“I'm a natural winger so I really like to attack, but I have played full-back for a couple of years, so I definitely can operate there, but I'm hoping to be more on the attack this season.”

Celtic kick off the SWPL1 20/21 season at home to Glasgow City on Sunday, October 18.
