Sunday Round-Up: Mixed Fortunes For Scottish Celts

THE BIG STORY: Leigh Griffiths won a place in Scottish fitba' folklore with two late free-kicks which looked like it had sealed a legendary 2-1 victory over England...until an injury time Harry Kane equaliser made it 2-2 and Scotland had that oh so familiar disappointing feeling, and Griffiths was understandably 'gutted' about the result after the game.

Griffths and Kieran Tierney were the best of the Celtic players on show, Griffiths with those two brilliant free-kicks and Tierney once again had a fine game playing in the unfamiliar right-back position.

Unfortunately the three other Celts on show didn't fare as well, as Craig Gordon could have done far better for England's first goal and arguably the second as well, Scott Brown failed to impose himself on the game after a very early booking and Stuart Armstrong started out on the wing and even in his more natural midfield position found the game difficult to get into.

Now the players will go on a break, with Celtic returning to pre-season training at the end of the month, but the players on international duty will return later than that, but fear not, we'll have updates on the site every day, and here's a transfer rumour, Celtic have been linked to Blackburn winger Connor Mahoney, but according to Daily Mail Nottingham Forest are favourites to sign him, so it may well just be paper talk.
