Celtic surrender a one-goal lead away at Motherwell, who run out 3-1 winners at the Fir Park Stadium.

Scottish champions Celtic threw away a one-goal advantage as they slumped to a 3-1 defeat away at Motherwell this afternoon.

In a first half of very few chances, visiting Celtic broke the deadlock with 40 minutes on the clock when Gary Hooper turned the ball into the net from six yards out.

However, they failed to hold out until the half-time interval as Henrik Ojamaa struck from 20 yards out deep into stoppage time to level up proceedings.

The encounter swung in Motherwell's favour within the opening 10 minutes of the second half.

First leading goalscorer Michael Higdon scored from the penalty spot after Charlie Mulgrew had hauled down Ojamaa inside the area and then Celtic goalkeeper Fraser Forster put through his own net.

Neil Lennon's visitors pushed hard for a route back into the game during the remaining minutes, but their search went unrewarded.
