Forrest fires Celtic past Pars


Celtic moved to within seven points of Clydesdale Bank Premier League leaders Rangers with a 2-1 win over Dunfermline at Parkhead that should have been convincing but ended up fraught.

Striker Gary Hooper and midfielder James Forrest capitalised on slack early play by the visitors to give the Hoops the half-time lead before manager Neil Lennon raged in frustration at the profligacy of his side as they spurned numerous chances.

Midfielder Ki Sung-yueng even missed the target with a penalty after the break before a goal by Pars striker Andy Barrowman with four minutes remaining saw the home side glad to hear the final whistle.
