Champion Celtic beats Dundee United 1-0

August 31, 2013

GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) — Anthony Stokes scored from a late free kick to give champion Celtic a 1-0 victory over Dundee United in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday.

The game was drifting toward a draw when Stokes was brought down by Stuart Armstrong and Keith Watson at the edge of the box.

Stokes curled the free kick over the wall and past goalkeeper Radoslaw Cierzniak, with the ball going in off the post in the 87th minute.

It has been a good week for Celtic, which has 10 points from four games and qualified for the Champions League group stage on Wednesday after a dramatic win over Shakhter Karagandy.
