Some clubs in world sport are famous for their never say die attitude, from Manchester United’s Fergie time to Gordon Strachan’s Celtic, a team that would run harder and faster than the opposition all the way until the final whistle. In this article, we will have a look at some of the best Celtic FC comebacks ever.
Here are the 5 best Celtic FC comebacks ever-
5. Aberdeen 1-2 Celtic [May, 2017]
Celtic completed a domestic treble without losing a game as Tom Rogic fired in a stoppage-time goal against Aberdeen to win the Scottish Cup.
A beautifully controlled half-volley from Jonny Hayes after nine minutes was reward for a fine Dons start.
But Celtic were level within two minutes as Stuart Armstrong was given too much time to pick out the far corner from the edge of the box.
Late Celtic pressure paid off as Rogic fired low past goalkeeper Joe Lewis.
4. Motherwell 3-4 Celtic [Dec, 2016]
Tom Rogic’s last-minute goal gave Celtic victory over Motherwell in a thrilling Premiership match.
Louis Moult scored twice – a first-time lob and a close-range volley – to put the hosts in charge.
However, Callum McGregor’s strike brought Celtic back into contention and Patrick Roberts headed them level.
Lionel Ainsworth quickly volleyed Well ahead again but that lead did not last long as Stuart Armstrong fired home to make it 3-3.
A minute from time, Rogic moved forward, picked his spot and smashed a shot past Samson to win this most gob-smacking game. It is undoubtedly one of the best Celtic FC comebacks ever.
Celtic’s character and quality in adversity was huge. Motherwell gave so much and did so many superb things, but, sickeningly for Mark McGhee and his team, they were denied the consolation of a point.
