Celtic maintained their ten-point lead over bitter rivals Rangers going into the international break with a dramatic last-gasp win over Dundee yesterday.
The side who sit second-bottom of the division did a solid job of frustrating the leaders, and Neil Lennon’s conservative tactics did his side no favours as they struggled to set a quick tempo to get their noses in front.
The Bhoys had to be patient and in the end Odsonne Edouard got a late, late goal to seal all three points and keep the title charge on course.
Brendan Rodgers’ departure hasn’t had a profound impact on results, but it has slowed up the momentum in terms of performances as Lennon has looked to a more defensive style of play to eke out results and get over the line.
But on an afternoon that required a battle, Scott Brown, as ever, was up for it and the Celtic supporters were full of praise for his performance – and leadership – after a dramatic win that keeps them firmly in the driving seat for the title.
We’ve put together some of the best reaction after a breathless finale…
Our captain, our hero our legend 🏴🍀💚😍✊
