Incredible Scenes As Celtic Sneak Win After Two Injury-Time Goals

Celtic have scored a late, late winner, deep into injury-time for a 2-1 victory away to St. Johnstone in the Scottish Premiership.

The celebrations were made even wilder given the fact that St. Johnstone had only equalised a minute earlier.

Celtic dominated possession with 75%, and went 1-0 up through an Andrew Considine own-goal just before half-time, and a narrow win looked secured until Alex Mitchell bagged an equaliser late into injure-time.

However, Celtic rallied brilliantly and hit-back almost immediately, with James McCarthy playing a big part in the goal. The Irish international won the ball back and passed to Alexandro Bernabei who sent in a pin-point cross that flashed past St. Johnstone keeper, Remi Matthews, as Giorgos Giakoumakis hammered the ball into the back of the net, before removing his shirt and sprinting into a rapturous away end.

The scenes after the goal and after the full-time whistle were incredible - if you were a Celtic fan - and it leaves Celtic at the top of the SPFL with 24 points after nine games.

Before the game, Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou spoke about the dangers St. Johnstone posed and the return of Giakoumakis, which proved incredibly prescient.

"St Johnstone played midweek and were disappointed to lose, so at home they are going to make it hard for us.

"We will need to have plenty of energy and intensity to our game, so it makes sense to make some changes. But we will wait and see how everyone looks before making changes.

"Giorgos came on in midweek and it's good to have him back. Liel is also available. Those two especially can add some of that energy I am talking about.”
