Celtic served up a classic in the final derby match of the season, with Barry Robson’s second-half penalty sealing a remarkable 3-2 comeback victory over their old rivals.

Gordon Strachan’s men came from behind to level in this hard-fought encounter, with Scott McDonald scoring one of the goals of the season to equalise just minutes before half-time.

The result opens up a five-point gap at the top of the league table, though Rangers still have three games in hand.


Huge result for the Bhoys today, saving a last gasp at a chance for the title. Have to win out now, and get a little help from some other teams. Here's to hoping.
