Celtic fans react on Twitter to Rogic display against Motherwell
By Matt Farr
Celtic midfielder Tom Rogic produced a moment of brilliance to sink Motherwell on Saturday – and fans on Twitter were ecstatic.
Celtic and Motherwell were level at 3-3 with just minutes to go, before Rogic sent the fans into raptures with his 90th-minute match-winning strike.
The win extends Brendan Rodgers’ side’s lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership to 11 points, as well as their undefeated run in the competition this season.
A brace from Motherwell’s Louis Moult had sent the home side into a shock 2-0 lead at the break, before Callum McGregor pulled one back for Celtic.
Patrick Roberts, Lionel Ainsworth and Stuart Armstrong each scored in a thrilling three-minute period in the second-half to take the scoreline to 3-3; before Rogic’s low drive settled the dramatic tie – much to the delight of Celtic fans.
