Scottish Premier League Roundup, Oct. 17

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.
