What McInnes had to say

The Aberdeen boss reckons it would have been an “absolute travesty” if his side didn’t come away with something at the end of their clash with Celtic.

Celtic have have been calling for the head of manager Neil Lennon on social media after today’s 3-3 draw with Aberdeen. The Hoops fans aren’t just unhappy with recent results, they believe Celtic have been playing well below par all season.

It’s all over at Pittodrie as the champions drop two points in the title race. It’s now three games without a win and more questions for Celtic boss Neil Lennon.

Two minutes into injury-time and Ferguson has tied things up. Bain doesn’t move as Ferguson slots the ball home at the keeper’s left-hand side.

Penalty to Aberdeen!

McLennan is taken down by McGregor, Cosgrove hits the ball with the loose ball but Collum points to the spot.

Ajer takes a chance inside his own penalty box and his robbed by McCrorie. Cosgrove hits the loose ball on the turn and fires just wide of goal.

Nervy moment for Celtic as Aberdeen have a free-kick on the edge of the area, but Ferguson lifts his effort clear over the crossbar.

The champions make another change as David Turnbull comes on for Rogic.

Christie converts the penalty, sending a low shot to the goalkeeper’s left.

Incredibly, it’s Aberdeen 2, Celtic 3.

There are 12 minutes remaining.
