Scottish champions Celtic have been shown that defending the title this year might not be quite as straightforward as they hoped.

Neil Lennon's side needed an injury-time goal to salvage a point against newly-promoted Ross County on Saturday afternoon.

The new boys led with a wonderful Richard Brittain free-kick just after the break, and they looked on to hold on for their first league win over the Glasgow giants.

Celtic huffed and puffed but could not find a way through the resolute County defence until the final minute of added time.

Chris Commons came to the rescue to salvage a point with seconds to go.

It was not exactly vintage stuff from an admittedly injury-hit hoops side, as they prepare to face Helsingborgs in the Champions League playoffs in three days time.

It's a two-horse race now, but one even the most-seasoned pundit would be brave to call.
