Video: Brilliant fan footage captures Matt O’Riley’s dramatic winner

Earlier today, Celtic sealed a dramatic win against Motherwell at Fir Park and a supporter has shared the incredible moment from behind the goal as Matt O’Riley secured the three points for the Scottish Champions.

Twitter/X user Chloe Reilly shared the fantastic moment from the Celtic End as O’Riley netted in dramatic fashion.

Luis Palma thought he’d won the game after a fizzing cross found its way goal wards. Then, Blair Spittal thought he had secured a point for Stuart Kettlewell’s team with a tidy finish. This sparked Well Bois to enter the park and celebrate.Whilst many teams might have let their heads drop after this, Celtic did not. Brendan Rodgers’ team had a minute of magic left with Greg Taylor picking out O’Riley as he entered the box. The Great Dane finished well, high into the net, to secure the win.

Meanwhile Thursday 19 October is going to be a very special day for The Celtic Star so please save the date…

John Hartson will be The Celtic Star’s guest of honour as we celebrate the launch of Matt Corr’s new book Majic, Stan and the King of Japan on Thursday 19th October at the Kerrydale Suite at Celtic Park. More information on the night and ticket details to follow…. Majic, Stan and the King of Japan tells the story of Gordon Strachan’s first dramatic and ultimately highly successful first season as Celtic manager and it was of course Big Bad John who scored the goal that won the league!

  1. Palma’s goal wasn’t a “fizzing cross” if you’ve watched any past clips of him playing you’d see he has scored several goals exactly like this, cutting in from the left and bending a shot around tge defenders and goalie from the corner of the box, into the net.
