Georgios Samaras' last-gasp header gave Celtic a dramatic 3-2 Champions League Group G victory over 10-man Spartak Moscow in the Luzhniki Stadium.

Celtic striker Gary Hooper gave visitors the lead in the 12th minute before Emmanuel Emenike netted twice for the Russian club, once either side of the break.

Celtic levelled in the 72nd minute after a drive from substitute James Forrest, who had replaced Victor Wanyama, deflected in off Spartak captain Dmitri Kombarov and to cap a remarkable night for the visitors Samaras headed in an Emilio Izaguirre cross seconds after the regulation 90 minutes.
