ReviewThis was a terrific game for the fans on a pleasant summer's night.
Celtic went in to the lead when the impressive Provan fired home a dipping shot past Graham in the United goal.
United equalised when McAdam was harshly adjudged to have handled in the area and Stewart scored from the spot. Payne then put United in front then McNeill threw on his subs Burns and Doyle and with only a minute left Doyle equalised from a Sneddon cross.
In injury time McCluskey grabbed the winner after Narey and Kirkwood had missed great chances for United. Before the end McCluskey hit the bar with a header.
