Glasgow, Apr 1: Celtic will have to wait at least one more week to clinch the Scottish Premier League title after Lee McCulloch scored in the 89th minute to give second-place Rangers a 2-1 win at Motherwell on Saturday.

Henrik Ojamaa put Motherwell ahead in the sixth minute but Steven Whittaker equalized three minutes later and McCulloch scored from about six yards (meters) following a long throw from Lee Wallace.

Rangers denied Celtic the title last week when it beat its local rival 3-2 and now has 60 points with six games remaining, six more than third-place Motherwell.

Celtic has 70 points ahead of Sunday's game against St. Johnstone.

Saturday's three other matches all went with the home teams. Dundee United beat Dunfermline 3-0, Hearts beat Aberdeen 3-0 and St. Mirren beat Kilmarnock.
