Despite being 2-0 up after an hour Celtic had Mikael Lustig to thank for maintaining their long unbeaten domestic run.

Having battled back to 2-2 Hibs were presented with a golden chance to score the winner in the third and final minute of stoppage time when Craig Gordon spilled a cross close to the edge of the penalty box.

The ball fell perfectly for substitute Ollie Shaw but his shot at goal was anticipated by Lustig who cleared the ball away from three yards out.

There was still time for Scott Sinclair, who had scored both Celtic goals to shoot over the bar but when the final whistle blew it was Lustig’s clearance that was the talking point.


The draw takes Celtic’s unbeaten domestic run to 68 matches with Brendan Rodgers’ side back in action at home to Hamilton on Wednesday.

The point takes Celtic five points clear of Aberdeen and Sevco at the top of the Premiership with a game in hand.
