Motherwell 1-1 Celtic: Danny Johnson’s late goal earns point

https://ift.tt/2rmgrL7

Ryan Christie’s goal was his sixth in nine games for Celtic

Danny Johnson’s late goal earned Motherwell a precious Scottish Premiership point and prevented Celtic returning to the top of the table.

Brendan Rodgers side looked like moving back to the summit thanks a sumptuous Ryan Christie goal – his sixth in nine games. Instead they stay in second.

Leigh Griffiths had a first-half spot-kick saved by Mark Gillespie and Filip Benkovic had an effort disallowed.

And Johnston skidded a late shot past Craig Gordon to earn an unlikely draw.

Champions Celtic now trail Kilmarnock by a point – with two games and hand – and trail Rangers by goal difference.

Motherwell, whose best chance before the goal was a Conor Sammon shot straight at Craig Gordon, stay ninth – six points clear the relegation play off place..
