Celtic drop Premiership points with 2-2 draw at Livingston SNS Group

Celtic have dropped more Premiership points after a 2-2 draw at Livingston means they go four league games without a win for the first time in over 20 years.

The Hoops were hoping to get to back to winning form after two draws and a defeat from their previous three- their longest run of league games without a win since 2012.

And a host of first-team regulars, including Leigh Griffiths and Kristoffer Ajer, who were forced to miss the last two fixtures, returned to the side after a period of self-isolation.

But it was the home-side who took the lead when Ciaron Brown headed them in front on the 15th minute.

Goals from Mohammed Elyounoussi and Nir Bitton on the 28th and 38th minutes put Neil Lennon’s men ahead at the break.

Despite a strong start to the second-half for Celtic, Jay Emmanuel-Thomas put David Martindale’s men level on the hour mark.

And the floundering Hoops had further disappointment when captain Scott Brown, a second-half substitute, was sent off, leaving them chasing the game with ten-men.

The point leaves the champions 20 points behind league leaders Rangers with two games in hand.
