Scott McDonald scored an equaliser for Celtic overnight but could not push his team to victory in the Europa League.

The Hoops went behind to Austria’s Rapid Vienna in the 3rd minute when Nikica Jelavic netted but were able to claw their way back on level terms when Australian striker McDonald again came to the rescue.

McDonald levelled the scores in the 20th minute when he intercepted a short back pass from Vienna defenders and raced in to coolly slot home from just inside the box.

It was a lucky escape for Celtic but the point for the draw was not enough to get them off the bottom of Group C.
