Hibernian fight back from two goals behind to draw 2-2 with champions Celtic in Sunday's Scottish Premiership clash at Easter Road.

Hibernian came from two goals behind to draw 2-2 with Celtic in Sunday's Scottish Premiership clash at Easter Road.

Scott Sinclair's second-half brace looked to be earning all three points for Celtic, but Efetobore Ambrose halved the deficit in the 76th minute, before Oliver Shaw levelled the scores three minutes later.

A win for the Hoops would have moved them seven points clear of second-placed Rangers with a game in hand, but the gap stands at five points after Brendan Rodgers's side threw away a late lead to draw.

In-demand forward Moussa Dembele came off the bench in the 71st minute, but the Frenchman passed up a couple of half-chances in the final moments as Hibs earned a point which moved them onto 30 for the season.

It is now 55 matches since Celtic last lost a game in the Scottish Premiership, while Rodgers's side stretched their unbeaten record against Hibernian to eight matches.
