It was a stunning effort from over 25 yards on and Celtic would then score again through Andy Lynch.
However, Celtic would in fact lose the game 3-2 despite being two up at half time. The second half collapse resulted in the first time the Parkhead side had been knocked out of the Third Round since 1968.
