Celta Vigo 4-1 Deportivo La Coruna

Iago Aspas
Iago Aspas scored one goal - against Oldham in the FA Cup - in 15 appearances for Liverpool

Former Liverpool striker Iago Aspas scored twice as Celta Vigo beat La Liga rivals Deportivo La Coruna 4-1 in the Galician derby.

Aspas scored from the penalty spot on the hour to put Celta 2-1 up after Raul Albentosa had cancelled out Hugo Mallo's opener.

Fabian Orellana added a third for Celta in the 78th minute before Aspas, 29, sealed the win seven minutes from time.

Aspas scored once in 15 appearances for Liverpool in the 2013-14 season.

Liverpool signed Aspas from Celta for £7m in June 2013 but he struggled to make an impact and was sold to Sevilla.

He rejoined Celta for a second spell in June 2015 and scored 14 goals in 35 appearances in La Liga last season.
