Gutsy Celtic deny Rapid

Published Add your comment

Celtic staged a dramatic Europa League comeback to draw 3-3 against Rapid Vienna in the Ernst Happel Stadium.

An experimental Hoops side found themselves three goals behind after only 19 minutes in the Group C dead rubber as Nikica Jelavic grabbed a double before strike partner Hamdi Salihi's goal threatened a rout.

However, Celtic striker Marc-Antoine Fortune scored before the interval, and as the visitors carved out several chances thereafter, he doubled his tally before Paul McGowan drove in a stoppage-time leveller to keep Celtic in third place.
