Saints equalised 3 minutes into the second half when Shaun Struthers headed home a free kick inside the box. Saints then went in search of further goals as they tried to take the lead however, visiting keeper Ross Doohan produced two important saves within seconds of each other to keep the Glasgow side in the game.

However, on 63 minutes Celtic regained the lead as substitute Grant Savoury struck from just inside the box. Then 2 minutes later it was 3-1 as Liam Henderson produced a stunning long-range effort that Mackenzie couldn’t do anything about.
