We're improving every week, says Teegarden


Ahead of Celtic’s final Group A SWPL Cup game against Spartans, Sarah Teegarden says she’s settling into the Hoops midfield just nicely, as she praises the relationship she’s built with Natalie Ross and Lisa Robertson.

Teegarden has started three out of three games so far this season, and after the massive win over Glasgow City, the midfielder hopes they can take confidence into the  must-win tie, but remains wary of Spartans' threat. 

“I feel like I’m doing well. Nats, Lisa and I have a good rotation and play well off each other because we’re all a little bit different but I think we’ve done well, especially against City’s really good midfield, so I think it was a great match up,” she began.

“We fought tooth and nail and that was evident by the result and as a team we’ve improved every single week, which is extremely important, especially tactically.

“The biggest thing for us is that we keep our mentality really strong. We can’t let any game go off just because it’s League Cup and not the League. We need to take Spartans very seriously and continue to improve and not feel confident just because of the City result,” she added.

Celtic have also yet to play in somewhat fair weather conditions. With Storm Ciara arriving in time for the season opener against Glasgow Women, high winds and relentless rain away to St Johnstone and dramatic conditions against Glasgow City, Teegarden is happy they have managed to play decent football and remain unbeaten, admitting it does bode well for the season ahead.

She said: “For us to get these results in such poor conditions is very important. Even with the win we still managed to get the ball down, but hopefully this weekend isn’t as poor conditions so we can keep playing more football."

Hailing from the States where the women's game reigns and having played in established leagues in both France and Sweden, the midfielder knows the heights the sport can reach. And after last weekend, while still a long way off, she believes there's definitely a market in Scotland, and that the Scottish league has the potential to be an exciting one for viewers. 

“We were all very stoked about the win because it proved we have the quality to do it game in, and game out. To have it Friday night, on TV with a stoppage time goal from our captain, it really couldn’t have gone much better and it definitely felt like a massive occasion and very well-deserved.

“It just shows how much more competitive this league can be. There are so many more leagues where there are one or two leaders and then the rest drop off, so to beat the champions in our home opener straight away shows how much more competitive the Scottish league can be," she told.
