John Sutton's strike gives Motherwell a surprise lead going into the break of their Scottish Premiership clash with Celtic.
John Sutton's strike has given Motherwell a surprise 1-0 lead going into half time of their Scottish Premiership clash with Celtic this afternoon.
Dan Twardzik had to be off his line quickly early on to sweep the ball clear from the onrushing Anthony Stokes as Celtic made a bright start to the match.
Nir Bitton then came close to reaching Callum McGregor's precise through ball, but Twardzik again reacted quickly to scoop the ball up.
Motherwell eventually went in front following good work from Craig Reid, who crossed for Sutton to volley home.
Celtic's response came through Virgil van Dijk, but his shot from 30 yards was dealt with easily by Twardzik.
Keith Lasley almost helped Motherwell double their lead when he fired across goal for Sutton, but the striker contrived to put his effort straight at Bhoys keeper Lukasz Zaluska.
Result: Celtic knocked out of Champions League >
