Watch: Mayhem As Scott Brown Scores Last Minute Winner & Gets Sent Off For Celebrations

What an ending! Celtic entered today's away game with Kilmarnock knowing a win would give them a major boost in the title race, putting them eight points ahead of old rivals Rangers. It would be a sizeable lead at this stage of the season.

Kilmarnock would be no pushovers however, putting together a decent campaign of their own. While their form has dropped off somewhat in recent weeks, manager Steve Clarke will no doubt have been hoping to get one over on the league leaders today.

For most of the game, things didn't go Celtic's way. The visitors had most of the ball but didn't create all that many clear cut opportunities. Kilmarnock were reduced to 10 men with 15 minutes to go, but heading towards injury time, it looked like they would hold out for a point.

Up steps Scott Brown.

With Celtic having a corner in the 90th minute, the ball fell to their captain at the edge of the area. He had a swing at it, with the shot taking a sizeable deflection before finding its way beyond the goalkeeper. Hardly a screamer, but neither Brown nor the Celtic fans cared. They went absolutely nuts.

Brown got a bit too carried away in fact, and when the dust settled, he would be given his second booking of the game, and march down the tunnel to cheers from the Celtic fans. Something tells me he won't be all that bothered about the red!

This result gives Celtic a bit of momentum heading into Thursday's Europa League clash with Valencia, where they will have to pull off a major shock in order to advance to the next round. They travel to Spain hoping to overturn a two goal deficit, and a massive performance will be required.
