CELTIC’S £1.5million misfit Nadir Ciftci was denied a debut goal for Plymouth – by former Rangers keeper Matt Gilks!
The Turkish international striker, bought from Dundee United by Ronny Deila in July 2015, almost celebrated his loan deal with an excellent effort against Scunthorpe.
Derek Adams pushed Ciftci straight into the firing line in the League One clash at Home Park.
And the powerful frontman thought he had opened the scoring with a raging header that was saved on the line by Gilks, who joined the Irons from Wigan in the summer.
Former Scotland international defender Graham Alexander saw his team make the most of their escape with Paddy Madden (2), Tom Hopper and Josh Morris netting as they eased to a 4-0 triumph.
The home side were reduced to 10 men in first-half stoppage time when Antoni Sarcevic saw red after an off-the-ball incident.
Former Ross County boss Adams moaned: “The goals we gave away were shocking.”
