Celtic Women star Murphy Agnew says she has never experienced anything quite like the Hoops support as they look prepare to take on Partick Thistle this weekend.

The 24-year-old American has played a key part in an impressive start to the season since joining from Australian side Newcastle Jets in the summer.

Agnew admits the fans have played a big part in their 100% winning start as Fran Alonso’s side look to make out ten league wins out of ten against the Jags on Sunday.

She insists that even when they are playing away it feels like a home game due to the passion and noise created by the Hoops faithful.

She said: “I’ve never played in front of fans who support the team as much as Celtic fans.

“The way they support us are incredible, even when we go three hours to Aberdeen it’s almost like it’s a home game for us because they always outnumber the away fans.

“It’s really incredible.”

Over 15,000 fans attended the final day decider against Hearts at Celtic Park last season as they fell just short of their SWPL crown.

Despite beating the Edinburgh side, a late goal from Glasgow City at Ibrox meant the league title returned to Petershill.

But Celtic are looking to make up for that this season after a blistering start that has seen them record nine wins out of nine and score an incredible 49 goals while conceding just six.

They take on Partick Thistle in Glasgow on Sunday as they look to build on their early start.

They currently sit two points ahead of second placed Rangers and five ahead of champions Glasgow City who they beat 2-1 two weeks ago.
