IRELAND XI WENT in all-square with Celtic at half-time in Scott Brown’s testimonial this afternoon.

The visiting side struck after six minutes as Callum O’Dowda won back possession and Alan Browne curled a cracking effort past Hoops goalkeeper Dorus de Vries from the edge of the box.

However, Leigh Griffiths proded home an equaliser three minutes before the interval. The game finished 2-2 after Callum O’Dowda’s strike hit the bar and went in off the back of Celtic goalkeeper Doohan and Patrick Roberts levelled things up with a deflected shot.
