Video: Nat Phillips own goal as Killie equalise at Rugby Park

Liverpool defender Nat Phillips saw his attempted clearance nestle into the back of the net to level up matters at Rugby Park. The defender, on loan at Celtic, stuck a leg out leg from a Brad Lyons cross to beat Joe Hart.

It was unlucky from Phillips as the Kilmarnock player had a couple of players attacking the penalty spot, meaning Phillips had to attack the ball. It was just unlucky that it went into the net.

Celtic took the lead in the first half through Matt O’Riley as they dominated the opening 45 but have been second best since the break.

    The justice of God on a once-Catholic club that publicly repudiated the divine moral law pre-match today with the wearing of the rainbow armband. I fear the 2-1 Kilmarnock victory is only the beginning of Celtic’s downfall following that act of apostasy. It will be very interesting now to see how Protestant Celtic fair against Protestant Rangers on December 30.

    • Well done Killie.
      Celtic couldn’t match the muscle or motivation to win.
      Hart the windmill is so motionless at cross balls, he’s a big softie.
      Taylor is always AWOL at goals against, just check the stats, he’s not anywhere near good enough.
      O’Riley pops up with some goals but is then anonymous at defending, also a big softie.
      Mikey Johnston, sorry son you just don’t have the mentality.
      Iwata nice touches but no clout.
      Teams know celtic have no height or muscle, so they capitalise on that failing.
      Brendan has brought back the slow side and backward passing, whole team is suffering through horrible tactics, Brendan can’t change and only way for him to go is by doing another runner.
      Killie by far the superior team in 2nd half.
      Celtic non existent.
