Dillon denies Hoops victory

Published Add your comment

Sean Dillon's dramatic goal in the third minute of added time gave Dundee United a point from a 1-1 draw against Celtic at Parkhead and dented the Hoops' Clydesdale Bank Premier League title hopes.

Tannadice striker David Goodwillie had missed an early one-on-one with Hoops keeper Fraser Forster before Gary Hooper drove past Dusan Pernis in the 23rd minute for his 11th goal of the season.

But with added time almost up, Dillon knocked in a floated free-kick from Barry Douglas to stun the home fans and keep Celtic three points behind Rangers at the top of the table.
