Quinn: On target

Celtic failed to move back to the top of the SPL after they were held to a 1-1 draw by Motherwell at Fir Park.

Paul Quinn's late equaliser for Motherwell prevented the champions going back above Rangers at the top of the table.

Hoops striker Scott McDonald received the help of the infamously poor Fir Park pitch in the 59th minute when his shot from the edge of the box appeared to bobble over the leg of keeper Graeme Smith.

However, nine minutes from the end of an exciting if rather agricultural encounter, Quinn levelled from 12 yards after the Parkhead defence had failed to deal with a Jim O'Brien cross.

Rangers remain top of the table on goal difference as Celtic now look to address their poor recent form which has seen them win just once in their last six SPL games.
