Caltex Socceroo playmaker Tom Rogic started his first game for Celtic in four months but the Scottish champions were held to a controversial 2-2 draw with Ross County overnight.
Rogic played just over an hour before being substituted at the Global Energy Stadium.

Frustration boiled over at the decision to award the spot kick after Alex Schalk went down in the box, and it resulted in the visitors’ captain Scott Brown seeing red after a bad tackle on the scorer of the penalty, Liam Boyce, moments after the equalising goal.
The incident sparked a melee as the game ended on a sour note 2-2.
