Scotland round-up: Celtic fight back for points

Celtic FC overcame the shock of going a goal behind to beat Livingston FC 3-1.

Celtic FC overcame the shock of going a goal behind to beat Livingston FC 3-1 in the Scottish Premier League on Wednesday night.

Champions fightback
The champions were stunned when Quino opened the scoring for the home side as early as the fifth minute. However Celtic battled back and equalised through Lubomir Moracvik in the 57th minute. Normal service was resumed four minutes later when Henrik Larsson put Celtic in front. John Hartson then wrapped up the victory in the 72nd minute.

Rangers held
The night's other game saw Celtic's rivals Rangers FC held 2-2 at Kilmarnock FC. Rangers had taken a two-goal lead through Ronald de Boer and Tore André Flo only to concede twice in the last five minutes. First Kris Boyd scored in the 85th minute before former Celtic striker Tommy Johnson converted a last-minute penalty.
