Falkirk hold Celtic to a draw

Falkirk vs Celtic

Bottom of the table Falkirk got a much needed boost when they took on Scottish Premier League leaders Celtic and held them to a 3-3 draw.

After a goalless first half, all six goals were fired into the nets within just 30 minutes, after the break.

Falkirk goalie made a double-save to stop Aiden McGeady's penalty going in, before Gary Caldwell put Celtic ahead.

The visitors then stayed in front until Mark Stewart got a third equaliser for Falkirk to make sure they got a point.

It still leaves them four points behind Hamilton at the bottom of the table, but critics reckon the team's performance against the league leaders will raise players' spirits.

Meanwhile, Celtic's lead at the top of the table has been narrowed to just two points.
