Late Jota Goal Earns Celtic Their First Away Win Of The Season

Celtic won their first away Scottish Premiership match since February thanks to Jota's late goal, extending Aberdeen's winless streak to nine games.

Early on, Kyogo Furuhashi scored a deserving goal, but the hosts strengthened after the break and equalized when Lewis Ferguson diverted in a corner.

The visitors, on the other hand, fought late at Pittodrie, with Jota's close-range finish securing a long-awaited away victory.

Celtic are still in sixth place, while Aberdeen are in ninth.

With high-flying Hibernian and Rangers yet to play on Sunday, Ange Postecoglou's side has reduced the gap on league leaders Hearts to five points with a much-needed three points.

Aberdeen has gone nine games without a win in all competitions, including a four-game Premiership losing streak, their worst in the top level since April 2011.

This victory could boost the morale of the Celtic players and they will want to regain top spot in the Scottish premier league.
