Jota double keeps Celtic top after five-goal thriller

Celtic remain top of the Scottish Premiership after Jota’s double secured the points in a five-goal thriller at Aberdeen.

The Portuguese winger scored his first after knocking the ball in at the back post after poor home defending before Matt O’Riley’s deflected second put the away side firmly in command.

However, two goals in five second-half minutes from Christian Ramirez and Lewis Ferguson drew the hosts level.

But the visitors responded instantly as Jota drilled home the winner.

It is another massive win for Ange Postecoglou’s side, who are now 20 league games unbeaten.

Aberdeen, who last won in the Scottish Premiership on Boxing Day, drop to ninth.
