Video: Incredible scenes as Matt O’Riley wins it for Celtic

Celtic thought that they had surrendered two points in injury time after Blair Spittal scored for Motherwell. Spittal’s 95th minute goal looked to have secured a point for Motherwell right at the end, minutes after Luis Palma thought he had won it.

However, Celtic scored once again in the 97th minute after Matt O’Riley crept in at the back post and finished well. It sparked incredible scenes at full-time with a number of fans coming onto the field. Greg Taylor’s pass was perfectly weighted, O’Riley ghosted into the box and finished brilliantly. A great win and it gives Brendan Rodgers’ team confidence going into Wednesday’s game against Lazio.

It was incredible from Celtic as they refused to concede that the game was set to end a draw. Now, Celtic have taken a seven point lead ahead of Rangers (3rd) and five points ahead of second placed St Mirren.

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!
