Liel Abada scored in the last minute to help Celtic produce one of the narrow football scores of the weekend in the Scottish Premiership. It looked likely that Celtic would fail to capitalize on Rangers dropping points against Ross County when Nir Bitton was sent off in the 81st minute. They kept the pressure up despite being a man down and were rewarded when Abada scored in a dramatic fashion. The win takes Celtic within two points of the defending champions.

Managers Reaction 

Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou: “It was probably just a continuation of the spirit and the willingness of the players to find a way. It wasn’t a great day for us, especially the first half when we didn’t have the intensity and tempo in our football to put them consistently under pressure. Having said that we created enough chances but when the ball is not going in and the keeper is pulling off some outstanding saves you just hope the players maintain their composure and then we got the red card.”

Dundee United boss Tam Courts: “I think we were probably (worthy of a point) in terms of effort, the commitment of players, and executing a game plan really well. Celtic had a lot of control, crosses, and attempts at goal. But we were comfortable in our shape. So I’m bitterly disappointed that we’ve lost it so late. My only frustration is that we didn’t sustain enough attacks and caused Celtic a lot of problems. We caused them more problems at Parkhead earlier in the season.”
