Celtic midfielder Stefan Johansen has expressed his disappointment at not getting all three points from their game against Motherwell on Saturday.

Celtic came from 2-0 down in the first half to lead the game 3-2 until John Sutton scored the equaliser for Motherwell in the 92nd minute.

“Motherwell are a good team and all respect to them”, the Norwegian told the club’s official site. “They were leading 2-0 at one stage, but we came back. I think we should have won but we didn’t do it for 90 minutes, and Motherwell didn’t give up.

“Our first half performance was pretty poor, but in the second half we controlled the game and we’re disappointed not to have won after a great comeback.”


Johansen admits that the Hoops were poor in the first half, but believes that they controlled the game in the second half and deserved to take all three points from the fixture.

“The manager made things clear to us at half-time. We all knew we hadn’t played well and it was just a case of getting together to start doing things better in the second half.

“We did that but still didn’t win and that was the most disappointing thing.”

Johansen joined Celtic in the January transfer window this year from Norwegian outfit Stromsgodset for a transfer fee of £2m, and signed a three-and-a-half-year contract with the Scottish champions.
