Motherwell 1-3 Celtic

Celtic Motherwell Scottish Premiership

Celtic scored twice in stoppage time as Brendan Rodgers’ side came from behind to beat Motherwell 3-1 to keep their Scottish Premiership title hopes alive.

After Rangers’ 5-0 win over Hearts on Saturday, Brendan Rodgers’ side knew they needed a response, but were punished for a lacklustre first-half display when Blair Spittal whipped the ball beyond the diving Joe Hart and into the far corner in the 43rd minute to give the hosts a deserved lead just before half time.

However, Celtic were much improved after the break and substitute Adam Idah, who replaced Kyogo Furuhashi at half-time, made an instant impact, heading Greg Taylor’s cross past Liam Kelly for the equaliser in the 51st minute.
Daizen Maeda spurned two big opportunities before Liam Scales forced Kelly into action as Celtic pushed for a winner.

With time running out, Idah poked home to complete the turnaround (90+4) and spark wild celebrations in the away end before Luis Palma (90+6) made sure of what could prove to be a crucial three points in the title race.
Celtic move back to within two points of leaders Rangers and this title race looks set to go down to the wire.
