Former goalkeeper of CSKA did not stop Celtic’s winning move
Reserve Lee Griffiths brought Celtic’s tough victory as a guest at Party Thistle 2-1. The Clovers played poorly in the first half and received a goal in the 35th minute when Connor Sammon realized a penalty. She was convicted of a violation of Swedish national Mikel Lustig.
Guests responded after the break. In the 55th minute they also received a penalty and Scott Sinclair regained a draw. A quarter of an hour later, Griffiths scored in the door of CSKA’s former goalkeeper Tomasz Cherny. The Czech Republic made several excellent rescues in the match, but in this situation it was helpless.
Celtic already has 11 points ahead of second Aberdeen. Manager Brendan Rogers did not play star Musa Dembele, who is in front of a transfer to England.
Today is the derby of the round between Glasgow Rangers and Aberdeen on Ibrox.
