Jota scored a brace to help Celtic produce one of the high-scoring football scores of the midweek action in the Premier League. He opened the scoring in the 16th minute before Matt O’Riley doubled the advantage four minutes later. The home side was cruising before Christian Ramirez pulled one back in the 56th minute before they equalized in the 61st minute. The scores were level for less than a minute before Jota scored the winner.
Aberdeen manager Stephen Glass: “I was [furious with the goal] as well. From the side he looks offside but regardless, he fouls Batesy and stops him from running back to deal with Jota who scores the goal. Again, I say it every week, I don’t want to talk about referees but there is a reason you ask me these questions. I was warned or told before the end of the game by the fourth official (Craig Napier) not to go on the pitch and speak to the referee but he didn’t tell both managers, he told one manager and maybe because he realized he made a mistake.”
Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou: “It has been a big part of our way of doing things, we obviously want to be a team who dominates the game and scores goals. But at times over the last three or four months, we have had to dig in. We had to do that again today, we’ve had two tough away games since the derby and we’ve taken six points from them.”
