    GLASGOW CELTIC, STRUCK A CRUEL BLOW WHEN THEY LOST THEIR GOALKEEPER BOBBY SIMPSON SECONDS BEFORE THE KICKOFF, WERE FORCED TO A PLAYOFF FOR THE WORLD CLUB FOOTBALL TITLE IN BUENOS AIRES ON WEDNESDAY (1 NOVEMBER) WHEN THEY WERE BEATEN 2-1 BY RACING OF ARGENTINA.

    THE BRAVE SCOTS, WHO SCORED FIRST AND LOOKED ON THEIR WAY TO THE WORLD TITLE, CONCEDED A GOAL IN EACH HALF TO A MUCH-IMPROVED RACING CLUB.

    THE CLUBS WILL NOW MOVE TO MONTEVIDEO ACROSS THE RIVER PLATE IN URUGUAY FOR A PLAYOFF TOMORROW (SATURDAY).

    CELTIC WENT AHEAD IN THE 22ND MINUTE WHEN JOHNSTONE WAS PULLED DOWN BY RACING'S GOALKEEPER CEJAS AFTER CHASING A LONG PASS UPFIELD. GEMMELL TOOK THE SPOT KICK AND BLASTED A SHOT THAT CEJAS COULD ONLY PARTIALLY STOP TO PUT CELTIC AHEAD.

    BUT RAFFO PUT RACING ON EVEN TERMS AGAIN IN THE 33RD MINUTE WHEN THE ARCHED A SHORT HEADER OVER CELTIC'S SUBSTITUTE GOALKEEPER JOHN FALLON FROM A CROSS BY MASCHIO.

    CELTIC DID NOT PLAY FOR A DRAW AT THIS STAGE AND KEPT ATTACKING FOR THE REST OF THE FIRST HALF.

    BUT ONLY THREE MINUTES AFTER HALFTIME, RULLI SENT CARDENAS CLEAR WITH A LONG PASS DOWN THE MIDDLE AND CARDENAS, ANOTHER OUTSTANDING RACING FORWARD; BEAT FALLON ALONG THE GROUND FOR THE WINNER.
