ReviewUnited are playing for their lives and fight for every ball. A strong wind and bare park also make it a difficult day to bring the ball down and pass.
McAdam's goal near half time was crucial and left Celtic chasing the game. Dalglish equalised with a 25 yard shot but Hall and McAdam made it 3-1 with young Aitken's inexperience in defence now showing.
Dalglish scored with three minutes left to make a fight of it and he had hit the bar earlier. Despite his goals Kenny didn't have his best game but he had virtually no support on a day when Celtic did not perform.
The Celtic fans left in a black mood and now realised that they had lost the initiative in the league race to Rangers.
