Some Celtic fans had to use smoke signals, racing pigeons, and transistor radio tonight to get the action from Fir Park. Not for the first time, Celtic TV let down the faithful with satellite problems.
Celtic came within 2 minutes of normal time to losing their unbeaten domestic run. From the commentary, the hoops were very very unlucky. They lost Paddy Roberts just after ten minutes. It sounded like another top performance from Well goalkeeper Trevor Carson.
It was a Lustig OG that gave Motherwell their 1-0 lead on 78 minutes. This gave Celtic less than a quarter of an hour to save themselves. Celtic substitute Tom Rogic hit the post in the 85th minute and the ball rebounded into the grateful arms of Trevor Carson.
Then there was bedlam inside the Well box. McGregor is adjudged to have been fouled in the box after Carson brilliantly saves a Rogic shot. The ball spins in the air and Andy Rose, according to referee Willie Collum, fouls McGregor. Scott Sinclair grabs the ball and fires the penalty into the top corner of the net.
How fitting Sinclair got to shut the boo boys up?
Celtic and Motherwell will do it all again on Saturday, this time in paradise. Did you enjoy our sarcastic headline? Anderlecht got beaten tonight by Standard Liege.
