Dundee United stun Celtic at Tannadice

6:14 am on 23 November 2009

Darren Dods's last minute goal lifted Dundee United to a 2-1 win over Celtic at Tannadice Park, the Tangerines' first Scottish Premier League win over the Glasgow giants in ten years.

United scored twice in the final seven minutes after Celtic's Barry Robson scored from the penalty spot in the 71st minute having been tripped in the box by Dods.

But in the 83rd minute, Jon Daly, in his first competitive game since April following a knee injury, headed the equaliser from a Danny Swanson corner before Dods nodded home the winner with seconds remaining to seal the shock victory.

Celtic now trail ladder leaders Rangers by one point after 11 rounds with United fourth, equal on points with Hibernian.
