Jota was a Glasgow derby hero once more as the Portuguese winger bagged a goal and assist alike to help Celtic to a 3-2 triumph.

The former Benfica man’s perseverance helped set up Kyogo in the second half before Jota himself got in on the act.

John Souttar made a woeful error with his back pass being too short for Allan McGregor. Jota nipped in in front of the veteran ‘keeper and finished sublimely from a hugely narrow angle.

This goal from the flamboyant winger was greatly reminiscent of one Celtic legend Henrik Larsson netted at Ibrox and @Celtschmerz on Twitter has put both goals together to display the vast similarities:

Undoubtedly, both strikes are almost identical. For each, the Celtic player takes one touch to get past the opposition ‘keeper and another to slide home and create resultant jubilant scenes.

Celebrations of said nature were certainly at the fore today as the Hoops took a giant leap towards the title.


  1. Lubos goals in that deid rubber game at the death star, were top hat too. But do see the similarity. Lars53ons goal was quite grand too.
