Gary Hooper’s 89th-minute goal extended Celtic’s winning start
to the Scottish Premier League season to eight matches on Sunday by
clinching a 2-1 victory over Dundee United.
Hooper put Celtic ahead by sending Mark Wilson’s cross into the
net from close range in the 13th minute before David Goodwillie
leveled with a deflected shot in the 38th.
There was controversy before the late winner when referee Dougie
McDonald initially awarded Celtic a penalty after United keeper
Dusan Pernis had clashed with Hooper. The referee changed his mind
after consulting with assistant Steven Craven.
Glasgow rival Rangers also kept up its 100 percent start against
Motherwell on Saturday ahead of next weekend’s derby.
