Celtic wasted the opportunity to return to the top of the Scottish Premiership as a late Danny Johnson strike gave Motherwell an unlikely 1-1 draw at Fir Park.
The visitors controlled the contest throughout, deservedly taking the lead in the 13th minute through Ryan Christie who coolly slotted home after being expertly found by Kieran Tierney down the left.
But for all their dominance the Bhoys had to settle for the narrowest of leads at half-time – Filip Benkovic’s exquisite finish ruled out for a foul and Leigh Griffith’s penalty excellently saved by Motherwell keeper Mark Gillespie.
And in a second-half lacking in quality, they were made to pay for their overall wastefulness as Johnson grabbed the unlikeliest of points with a superb low finish from just inside the box
