Celtic have lost their position at the top of the Scottish Premier League after drawing 1-1 with St Johnstone at home.

The Hoops have a game in hand but Hibernian have pushed two points ahead after beating Dundee United 2-1 at Easter Road.

In their first game after beating Barcelona in the Champions League, Celtic looked a different side and gave away the lead in a low-key affair.

Tony Watt opened the scoring shortly after half-time before Nigel Hasselbaink levelled in the 77th minute.

In Sunday's earlier kick-off, Hibernian celebrated going top. Leigh Griffiths scored their first with a rocket into the top right-hand corner before Eoin Doyle doubled the lead after half-time.

A defensive mistake allowed Gary Mackay-Steven to pull one back for Dundee but Hibs held on, despite their opponents hitting the crossbar late on - much to the delight of manager Pat Fenton.
