Goalden sur­prise

Perthshire Advertiser - - HOUSE HOME -

Steven Ma­cLean net­ted the goal which earned St John­stone a point at Celtic Park – but he was con­vinced he was off­side.

The Perth striker struck in the first half to shock the Scot­tish cham­pi­ons and si­lence the home crowd.

Re­plays proved Ma­cLean was onside but he said af­ter the game: “I thought I was off­side, I’ll be hon­est.

“I was just tak­ing the mick. I put it in, turned round and they were say­ing‘He’s given it’.

“I looked across and thought‘The lines­man must be steam­ing’.”
