Champion Celtic stays top with 2-1 win over Dundee in Scottish Premiership


GLASGOW, Scotland — Anthony Stokes and John Guidetti gave Scottish Premiership leaders Celtic a 2-1 win over Dundee on Saturday.

The champions went in front just before halftime when Stokes headed in a free kick from Kris Commons.

When Guidetti scored in the 54th minute — the striker's 10th goal since arriving on loan from Manchester City — it looked like Celtic would cruise to victory.

However, four minutes later Dundee striker David Clarkson reduced the deficit, scoring in a seventh successive game for Dundee to equal the club record set by Alan Gilzean in 1964.

Celtic held on to stay top, with a game in hand over Inverness, which remains second on goal difference after beating Motherwell 3-1.
