Celtic concedes 2 late goals to draw in Scotland


GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) -Celtic surrendered a two-goal lead in the final minutes to draw 2-2 with Dundee United in the Scottish Premier League on Sunday, leaving the defending champions level on points with second-place Hibernian at the top of the standings.

Celtic looked like it would warm up for Wednesday's Champions League match against Barcelona with a comfortable win when Tony Watt put the team 2-0 ahead in the 80th minute, adding to Miku's opener in the 69th.

However, Gary Mackay-Steven halved the deficit for the hosts in the 89th before Celtic defender Efe Ambrose glanced a header into his own net after two minutes of stoppage time.

Celtic is tied with Hibs on 21 points - three clear of a trio of rivals - but has a game in hand.
