Shane Duffy Grabs Second Celtic Goal In Narrow Win Vs St Mirren

Shane Duffy Grabs Second Celtic Goal In Narrow Win Vs St Mirren

Gary Breen's prediction that Shane Duffy's goal tally would get into double figures for Celtic this season always seemed plausible. In fact, the forecast that the centre-back would just score more than nine goals this season maybe have been a gross underestimation.

Duffy scored his second goal of the season for Celtic on Wednesday night. It was again a header from a set piece. This time, it was far more important than the third goal in a 5-0 win. It was the equalising goal in a 2-1 victory over St Mirren - Celtic's fourth consecutive win in the league.

Lee Erwin gave St Mirren the lead after three minutes. That advantage lasted 18 minutes until Ryan Christie swung in a free kick from the right and Duffy met it with his head. That's two games for Duffy in a Celtic jersey, two goals.

Celtic took the lead nine minutes before the break through James Forrest. The margin of victory should have been even larger but Odsonne Edouard missed a 74th minute penalty.

The win leaves Celtic three points behind Rangers, though they do have a game in hand.
