An automatic camera confused a linesman’s bald head for the football during Inverness’ match against Ayr United.

The home side rescued a late point as they drew 1-1 in their second match of the Scottish Championship on Saturday.

But supporters watching the match on Caley’s live stream missed some of the action, as the Pixellot camera intermittently tracked John McCrossan’s head – instead of the ball.

After receiving complaints on social media, Pixellot confirmed they knew of the problem and said they were working to improve for the next match.

A statement said: “We are aware of the issue with linesman and we are already working on improving this for the next game.”

The company said they hoped “this will not happen again”, adding that the “viewing experience will be better”.

Nikolay Todorov scored a late equaliser from a Ryan Fyffe assist, following Ayr’s opener through Kilmarnock loanee Innes Cameron in the 57th minute.
