Commons strike rescues Celtic

Kris Commons late strike earned Celtic a point

A dramatic injury-time goal by Kris Commons gave Celtic a 1-1 draw against Clydesdale Bank Premier League new boys Ross County at Victoria Park.

There were four minutes gone in the second half when Hoops defender Mikael Lustig fouled Mark Corcoran 20 yards from goal and Parkhead goalkeeper Fraser Forster had no chance when Staggies skipper Richard Brittain fired the free-kick high past him and into the net.

It looked like the Highland side would hold on for their first league win over the Glasgow giants but, in the third minute of added time, Commons pounced to tap the ball into the net from close range after County keeper Michael Fraser had spilled a shot from Hoops substitute Tony Watt, who had replaced Lustig.

Was the injury time carried over from the first half?  Didn`t see anything in the second the merited it.
