Hoops fight back to earn Vienna draw

An experimental Hoops side found themselves three goals behind after only 19 minutes in the Group C deadrubber as Nikica Jelavic grabbed a double before strike partner Hamdi Salihi’s goal threatened a rout.

However, before the interval, Celtic striker Marc-Antoine Fortune scored to stem the tide with an emphatic finish from 10 yards out.

It still looked a long way back for Tony Mowbray’s side but the former Nancy frontman doubled his tally in the 67th minute to set up a tense finale and, in stoppage time, Paul McGowan, making his first start of the season, controlled a Marc Crosas ball on his chest before fring into the corner.
